Tap-offs can be installed on to IBAR Distribution Busbar at any suitable tap-off location point. Tap-offs are typically used on vertical rising mains within multi-storey buildings to distribute power to each floor/area, the tap-off can be used to directly feed equipment or final circuits via a PDU or Distribution Board.
Distribution busbar and tap-offs are also common place within manufacturing / industrial environments where shop floor layouts are dynamically changed to meet the current production demands.
IBAR tap-off’s feature ‘Safe-Lock’ technology to ensure all connections are safely and securely made and connect / disconnect conductors in sequence (protected earth made first, broken last).
The IBAR’s standard range of tap-offs is available with options for all major component manufacturer’s protective devices such as;
- Schneider Electric
Our range of tap-offs include a fully welded steel enclosure and feature multiple cable glanding plates and fully shrouded neutral and protected-earth bars. All tap-off doors and breaker connection shrouds feature ‘Mardix Thermagrid’ technology to facilitate safe thermal imaging of the circuit breaker and connections whilst live (see Expert Thermography – Mardix Critical Power Services).
Tap-offs are available with options for environmental and power monitoring which can be fully integrated within a head-end ENMS, SCADA or DCIM system (i.e. Mardix IMS).
IBAR can provide a turn-key solution incorporating distribution busbar system design, value engineering, project management, delivery, installation, commissioning and lifecycle management (i.e. Mardix iControl Cloud).
