From data centers to production lines and fulfillment centers, today’s commercial and industrial facilities are perpetually short on capital, space and time. These are pressing challenges because society relies upon these vital environments for around-the-clock production, storage and deployment of physical and digital assets.
In each of these diverse applications, it is equally important to maintain both operational and layout flexibility. These facilities are packed with heavy-duty machinery and other electrical equipment. Some buildings even embed power distribution components directly in concrete beneath the floor, which makes moves, additions and changes expensive and time-consuming. Thus, the ability to plan and accommodate for unknown future changes is critical to maintaining profitability and avoiding unnecessary facility modification costs.
At the same time, the ways in which these facilities operate is constantly changing. This evolution drives an increasing need for more flexible, adaptable power distribution systems. For example, data centers, production lines and fulfillment centers serve customers with a wide variety of ever evolving needs. This, in turn, makes the facilities more complex and facility layout processes more labor-intensive.
For these reasons and more, many application environments can utilize busway to distribute electrical power. Busway is well known as a flexible, efficient and sustainable alternative to traditional power distribution approaches. What if this successful model could be improved upon to yield an even larger impact on your bottom line?
This white paper provides an overview of how continuous track busway can meet the power system flexibility requirements of facilities across nearly any industry. The principal benefits of the innovative power distribution solution will be explored, along with the key attributes of the technology as it relates to power system flexibility, scalability, productivity and safety.
