LOW VOLTAGE BUSBAR SUPPORTS
The MX range of busbar supports are available in a variety of different configurations, offering supports for your entire range of panels with the same uniform and sleek design. These multi-pole supports offer quick and easy installation for three or four pole requirements. Options are available for different phase centres, number of poles and bars per pole. Supports are also available to fit insulated copper, with both metric and imperial versions.
The range offers Icw ratings of up to 65kA/3 seconds.
The VMS range offers a versatile solution with a superb Icw rating. As a single pole support, they can be installed to give as many poles as required. The support can hold one, two or three conductors per pole, and can be used with spacers to create 110mm and 130mm phase centres, or without spacers to give any desired phase centres.
In certain configurations, The VMS range of supports can reach an Icw rating of 100kA/1 second.
The RMS range of supports offer a solution for 3 x 10mm, 3 x 10mm insulated, and 6 x 5mm conductors. Their rail mounted design makes them easy to install, and their glass reinforced polyamide material makes them strong and lightweight.
The RMS range of supports achieve fault ratings of up to 65kA/1 second.
The DBBS range offers a flexible solution for small distribution boards. They offer easy connection to moulded case circuit breakers. The intelligent design accommodates 20, 25, 30 x 10mm, and 20, 25 x 5mm conductors in one support. There is a 3-pole and a 4-pole version available.
The DBBS range is capable of Icw ratings of up to 50kA/1 second.
The FBS busbar supports offer an adaptable solution for flat conductors. The innovative design accommodates a range of conductor sizes from 3mm to 10mm in one support. The supports are sold as bottoms and tops, giving the ability to stack a number of tops to give a wide range of configurations.
The FBS supports are capable of achieving Icw ratings of up to 50kA/1 second.
The DMC range encompasses Termate’s traditional busbar supports. The supports are compression moulded, unlike the black busbar supports which are injection moulded. There are a range of supports for different phase centres, number of poles and bars per pole.
DMC supports are available for Icw ratings up to 100kA/1 second.
Busbar supports, sometimes referred to as busbar clamps or busbar braces, provide support and insulation in electrical assemblies where current carrying busbars (conductors) are present. Polyamide busbar supports are often found in low voltage electrical panel boards, such as control panels, distribution boards, switchboards, electrical power boards and power factor correction boards. As well as providing support and insulation, busbar clamps are designed to cope with the forces associated with short circuits and the ongoing temperatures of conductors potentially running at 140°C.
As with all Termate products, our busbar supports have been put through expert, rigorous and independent testing to ensure their suitability for their intended application. Our busbar braces are tested to give you the confidence, that when correctly installed in your own assembly, they will meet their specified ratings, reducing the risk of unexpected failure during the assemblies’ design verification tests. We utilise the requirements of IEC 61439: Low-voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies and offer supports with Icw fault ratings of up to 100kA/1 second. Various tests have been performed to ensure the supports’ suitability, including glow wire and dielectric tests.
A number of our busbar support ranges are UL recognised components and can be found under the catalogue number E505645. The recognition falls under the categories: Panelboard and Switchboard Accessories – Components and Panelboard and Switchboard Accessories Certified for Canada – Components. The ranges which are UL recognised are indicated in their technical information below.
Termate have been expertly manufacturing specialised insulation products in the heart of the UK for more than 60 years. We manufacture all our busbar supports in our Nottingham factory, so you can be assured of their high quality. We have complete control over our production schedules, which allows us to offer our customers flexibility in lead times. Our in-house product development team constantly seeks to improve existing products and develop new, innovative parts for our customers.
