New ReliaGear™ busway is lighter, smaller, easier to modify

  • Lighter because it replaces the typical heavy wire and conduit used in most applications making it easier to handle and hang
  • Smaller with a compact design ideal for applications where space is critical
  • Easier to modify due to its flexible modular design; busway runs can be easily added, disassembled, and relocated with minimal effort

ABB’s new low voltage ReliaGear™ busway combines benefits of the proven Spectra™ series busway, the sophisticated technology of the SACE® Tmax® XT circuit breaker, and fused switch in a plug-in unit. With a sleek modern look, ReliaGear busway is a custom designed, modular electrical power distribution system available in both feeder and plug-in styles.

“ReliaGear busway was developed based on feedback from customers and structured focus groups,” said Dick Jackman, Senior Vice President, ANSI MV+LV Switchgear, ABB. “Customers asked for lighter, smaller power bus systems that are flexible enough to expand or realign in facilities, as needs changed, and ABB responded to that request.”

Custom designed and built to fit specific layout needs, ReliaGear busway is delivered ready to be installed and reduces labor and installation time by as much as 50 percent by eliminating the time-consuming tasks of forming conduit, stripping, preparing, and pulling wire.

ReliaGear busway is designed for use across market segments such as heavy industrial facilities (factories, gas/oil refineries), data centers, hospitals, aviation facilities, universities, high-rise commercial or residential buildings and utility/vault service runs.
