Product Features & Benefits

Flexibility

The PowerWave 2 Busway System was designed as a continuous open channel power distribution busway that allows Tap Off Box units to be placed anywhere along the bus rails. The PowerWave 2 Busway System can be deployed using custom lengths for rails, 90° Elbows, or 90° & 180° Tees allowing customers to fit PowerWave 2 into many different configurations of mission critical facility layouts. The PowerWave 2 Busway System can be oriented vertically or horizontally to fit customers over rack or underfloor power distribution space constraints. The PowerWave 2 Busway System introduces our patented CouplerTek Technology™ with the smallest coupler in the industry giving the maximum amount of real estate and the smallest keep out area to install the PowerWave 2 Tap Off Box units into the busrails. The PowerWave 2 Busway System Tap Off Box units can fit any size busrail in the product line giving customers unlimited use of where the Tap Off Box units may be installed.

Simplicity

Configurability
The PowerWave 2 Busway System can be deployed in 250 Amp, 400 Amp, & 800 Amp systems to fit all ranges of customers’ mission critical power loads. PowerWave 2 Tap Off Box units boast 128 Amps maximum per phase, offering over 1,000 different configurations for customers’ specific server rack power distribution needs.

Intelligence 

PDI’s Busway Monitoring allows for pro-active power usage and availability management to ensure power needs do not surpass capacity of the complete busway system or individual Tap Off Boxes.


Safety 

PowerWave 2 Busway features an IP2X, finger-safe rated continuous busway solution ensuring complete isolation from live busrail conductors. PowerWave 2 Busway Tap Off Box unit installation makes ground connection first ensuring no risk of electrical shock to a technician. The Tap Off Box installation has been ETL listed for live installation and removal without powering down the entire busrail. The PowerWave 2 Busway conductors and contacts have been designed with ASME standard silver plating ensuring the highest quality and maximum reliability for mission critical power distribution applications. The PowerWave 2 Busway System has the lowest operating temperature increase in the industry providing the most reliable busway system on the market.
