Outstanding advantages of guide bar over cable:
– Very large electrical conductivity, up to 6300A, 7500A
– Less loss and able to extract electricity from 1 axis of the guide bar at many different positions on the busbar
– High aesthetics, and save the installation area, save the area of main power distribution cabinets.
Finally, with a certain operating current (1000A for aluminum core, 1250A or more than 1600A for copper core), the full cost of using for the busbar, will be cheaper than using traditional power cable.
The conductor is used instead of the electric cable, but the nature of the conductor is just electric cable, it is only different in that it is made of uncoated bars, copper or aluminum conductors coated with insulation material. Electricity increases resistance to lightning and becomes safer
