Adding or Removing Cables
- Adding conductor rails and carbon conductors to a busbar system is a painstaking process. If even one cable is damaged it can halt the machine for an extended period of time while it’s replaced.
- Busbar systems are only able to run power and control cables, hoses and other cables have to be guided by a seperate system.
- Bus bars are high maintenance systems that require a lot of care and adjusting. With many mechanical parts, there is a lot of room for error. Additionally bus bars use carbon conductors that have to be changed at regular intervals.
- Bus Bars expose bare loaded conductors to the surrounding environment. This creates a safety concern, especially in hazardous or explosive environments such as paper mills, paint booths, etc.
