Bus Bar, Ground Straps, Ground Bars & Accessories
T & B
Bus bars are incredible pieces of technology that make complicated power distribution much easier, less expensive and more flexible. They distribute electricity with greater ease and flexibility than some other more permanent forms of installation and distribution. Sometimes spelled busbar or buss bar, they are often metallic strips of copper, brass, or aluminum that both ground and conduct electricity.
Grounding straps are anti-static devices that are used to protect people and electronic equipment from electrostatic discharges (ESD) by routing the electric current to a safe ground. They are designed to protect personnel who come in contact with conductive or dissipative surfaces, and to provide grounding for electrically-powered equipment.
Ground bars are an essential electrical component used in current safety management. Essentially, they consist of specially designed bars made from current attracting materials that are then installed into the ground. When lightning strikes a building, the current will pass through conductive materials installed onto the building, and end up being grounded into the earth through the bars –usually located in specially pre-drilled holes.
