DATABAR Bus System
Flexible. Robust. Efficient. Specifically designed for the mission critical power market, the DATABAR Bus System is a rugged yet flexible, easy to install, highly efficient, structured busway for the safe and reliable distribution of power. The Anord Mardix Databar busway utilizes a unique male and female coupling system that is integral to the individual busway sections. The key component of this system is the beryllium copper spring couplers attached to the female end of each busway section. This Patent Applied For component exhibits extreme shapememory properties and great conductivity, ensuring a highly reliable joint connection at high load currents. Anord Mardix has gained an unmatched level of expertise in developing reliable products for critical power facilities. Anord Mardix 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 Anord Mardix Databar Bus System allows for equipment upgrades and additions on live systems.
Structural Robustness Independently Seismic tested to IEEE 344-2013: Standard for Seismic Qualification of Equipment for Nuclear Power Generating Stations
Environmental Friendliness 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.
Safety Independently Arc Flash tested to technical report IEC/TR 61641.
Integrated Communications Capabilities Optional integration of communication enables advanced power monitoring without additional footprint. Anord Mardix Databar Tapoff Monitoring provides full power calculations (A, W, PF, THDI, THDV, Wh and waveform capture) for each circuit using high speed differential signal transmissions with a time base. Tapoff monitors achieve better than 0.5% system level accuracy when used with provided current transformers.
