Bus bars & profiles are extensively used in low voltage distribution, high current & control equipment. The applications of bus bars & profiles include low and medium voltage switchgear, busway systems, panelboards, switchboards and many others. It feeds to the heavy electrical uses in various commercial & industrial buildings as plating cells and feeder systems.
Bus bars that are made from copper are preferred over aluminum bus bars, better inbuilt electrical bus bars because of the better electrical conductivity that copper bus bars offer. It is due to the greater electrical conductivity of copper, which enable installers to use smaller bus bars if they are made of copper.
Moreover, when it comes to the higher current requirements, copper bus bars are preferred. Copper bus better-inbuilt resistance against corrosion than aluminum bus bars, thus making them apt to withstand all weather conditions including wet, dirty etc.
