Varieties are so extensive that possibilities for 600-V distribution purposes are practically unlimited. Busways are available for either indoor or outdoor use as point-to-point feeders or as plug-in takeoff routes for power. Progressive improvements in busway designs have enhanced their electrical and mechanical characteristics, reduced their physical size, and simplified the methods used to connect and support them. These developments have in turn reduced installation labor to the extent that busways are most favorably considered when it is required to move large blocks of power to loadcenters (via low-impedance feeder busway), to distribute curre…
