Busbar instead of cables

SIVACON 8PS – BD01 system for small consumers

Whether in car repair shops or bakeries, photography studios or production facilities: Electric power must be available everywhere at any time in trades and industry. The BD01 busbar trunking system offers you modern and economical power supply solutions. It was specifically developed to ensure a safe and reliable power supply to small consumers, i.e. low electrical loads, and to implement power feed for lighting systems.

Supplying demand-based power safely and reliably

Simple planning, flexible power supply: The BD01 busbar trunking system is ideal for trades and industry. Conceived on a modular basis, the system can be adjusted to meet your specific needs. The prewired tap-off units can be individually equipped as needed. In addition, numerous add-on devices are available, such as protection devices and combinations with SCHUKO or CEE socket outlets. 

Error-free installation, clear assignment to electrical loads, and a high level of protection

The reliable technology used for the mechanical and electrical connections of the BD01 system makes it easy to install error-free. The tap-off points and units, which can be coded, can be clearly assigned to the individual electrical consumers. The tap-off points are only automatically opened upon connection of the tap-off units. As soon as the tap-off units are removed, that tap-off points close automatically. This provides a high level of protection for operating personnel.
