PowerWave Bus System

Flexible. Robust. Efficient. Specifically designed for the mission critical power market, the PowerWave Bus System is a rugged yet flexible, easy to install, highly efficient, structured busway for the safe and reliable distribution of power. The PowerWave Bus System incorporates several patent pending design features including integrated communications capability, Camtough™ structured joint technology and a robust Toughrail Technology® support frame. With over 35 years serving data and processing centers as well as banking and industrial markets, PDI has gained an unmatched level of expertise in developing reliable products for critical power facilities. From preliminary concept to final installation, PDI critical application solutions simplify system installation, improve flexibility and increase operational efficiencies.

Traceability Overhead power distribution effectively maximizes the use of space and increases traceability of circuits.

Configurability The continuous rail design allows circuits to be added and changed as needed without extensive electrical work. Splice connections are removable to support easy reconfiguration options.

Flexibility Server loads can be plugged in almost anywhere along the raceway. Through Tap-Offs, the exact circuit breaker capacity and cable or receptacle type can be specified at any location along the rail, simply by plugging the correct Tap-Off into the busway. Tap-Off units are highly configurable to meet load demands and specific requirements including monitoring.

Disruption-Free Upgrades and Additions The PowerWave Bus System allows for equipment upgrades and additions on live systems. Energy Efficiency The open channel bus design eliminates energy-wasting hot spots commonly found in electrical cable congestion points. It reduces resistance and minimizes voltage drops as well as power losses, which in turn decrease heat generation.

Structural Robustness Designed with PDI’s unique Camtough™ structured joint technology as well as the robust Toughrail Technology® support structure, the PowerWave Bus System consistently passes load capacity tests of up to 200 percent of its maximum rating.

Environmental Friendliness The PowerWave Bus System is made of 99 percent recyclable components.

Safety The components of the PowerWave Bus System are flame-retardant and comply with all industry standards to eliminate toxicity in case of a fire.

Integrated Communications Capabilities Optional integration of communication enables advanced power monitoring without additional footprint. PDI’s Branch Circuit Monitoring System (BCMS) Hub can collect power data from a total of up to 240 devices with multiple monitoring display options. Alternatively, for lower density applications, the 7” PowerWave Local Touch Screen Display can collect power data from a total of 96 devices using solely the PowerWave Bus System.
