non-ventilated design busbar and is fully insulated using halogen free fire retardant epoxy insulation. BBT thus continues as a single systems to replace cables as well as distribution boards at floor level for building (commercial or industrial). The BBT is totally enclosed. In comparison to cables. Traditionally cables were used for this function.L&TMegaduct BBT system offer a superior alternative to cables and other bus trunking options through this compact and scalable range of system thus providing an enhanced solution to power transmission and distribution in buildings as well as industry. BBT can thus serve as distribution panels at different stages (at floors of a building).L&T . L&T introduces world-class sandwich Busbar Trunking System (BBT) under the brand ‘L&T-Megaduct’ to its valued Indian customers. performs the function of transporting current form one point to the other.Megaduct Busbar Trunking System Busbar trunking system (BBT). BBT can tap off power to switchgear for further distribution using tap of boxes. IT/ITES Hotels Hospitals Areas of Application Industries Apartments Airports Assembly lines in factories 2 . BBT goes beyond what cables do.

They are scalable & elegant. some of which are mentioned below. This ensures all connected equipment run cooler. Higher mechanical strength over long runs. Benefits of Sandwich Construction : Compactness : Sandwich construction render to the BBT system more compact than air insulated bus bar system. Epoxy insulation. thus making them a preferred choice in plant room and building applications.Types of Busbar Trunking System Busbar trunking system is of two types: 1) 2) Sandwich : Epoxy or Cast Resin type Air Insulated : Fabricated Air Insulated type Sandwich Busbar trunking system is preferred widely due to its advantages over Air insulated busbars as well as cables. Ability to withstand high short circuit currents make them doubly safe. Inherently flexible design ensures easy installation and maintenance thus resulting in lower installation and maintenance costs. Compactness of sandwich construction results in higher efficiency due to lower voltage drop and impedance. better electrical conductivity and lower mV drop which ensures high reliability. being flame retardant provides better resistance to spread of fire. Sandwich construction do not have air gap due to which natural progression of fire is inhibited. Energy efficiency : Flexible : Safe & Sure : Fire retardant : Economical : 3 . Additions of floor to a building or any expansion to an existing system is extremely simple with sandwich BBT.

Plug in type: Straight busbar trunking unit having tap off points on one or many faces. 2 Straight Busduct These straight bus duct run along the length of connection and the body of the bus trunking system. Flange End is provided with sufficient space for direct cable connections by nuts and bolts. (details can be given on request) Flange End Box can be provided on request with flange end for accommodating protective devices like ACB/MCCB. The power is fed at the flange End to energise the busbar trunking system. Types of straight busduct are: Feeder type: Straight busbar trunking unit with no tap off facility.

Benefits of using epoxy coating as insulation : Withstands glitch and spikes in electrical system so that system is stable & runs reliably. Capable of withstanding heat shock thus minimising chances of failure due to spark or excess heat.Conductor Al Feeder Type Plug-in Type Cu IP42 Ingress Protection Indoor Outdoor IP55 IP66 IP67 Neutral 100% 200% System Voltage : 600V and up to maximum 1000V / 3P / 50 Hz or 60 Hz constructed in various configurations of 3 phase 3 wire or 3 phase 4 wire with or without 50% integral housing ground and separate earth bar.
