Anord Mardix RESINBAR IP68 Busbar Solution

Innovative busbar trunking design for improved performance and cost-effective power distribution layouts

The RESINBAR power distribution busbar solution has been developed by Anord Mardix to meet the growing demands of the critical power industry. Each system employs innovative designs which improve performance and reduce costs. All RESINBAR products are manufactured in the UK to the latest British Standards (BS EN 61439-6), and in a purpose-built facility and cured in a temperature controlled environment for consistency of quality.

The trunking system is an arrangement of copper (CXC) or aluminium (CXA) busbars which are fully encapsulated with an IP68 rated composite epoxy resin. This provides both mechanical strength and electrical insulation to the busbars as well as enhanced environmental, fire and chemical resistance. Therefore the system is suitable for use in arduous outdoor environments and as part of a life safety system. In addition the RESINBAR employs the very latest patented technologies in vacuum composite mixing to ensure a highly uniform and homogenous mix. This mix is flame retardant and self extinguishing and offers high levels of resitance to fire, water, humidity and chemicals.
