What is Bus Bar Wire?
Bus bar wire is an uninsulated, unshielded, and unjacketed single wire type of conductor. It is commonly used as feeder lines from a bus bar. This means that bus bar wire is used to distribute power from a centralized bus bar to outlying equipment. Since it is a single piece of wire, it is solid rather than stranded. Bus bar wire is known for its flexibility and ease of installation compared to other types of wire. Since there is no insulation, there is no need to strip the wire which means fewer tools and less time involved. Bus bar wire is commonly tinned for added protection and corrosion resistance. Despite having no insulation or jacket, bus bar wire carries rugged durability ensuring its longevity. Now that you have a general idea of what bus bar wire is, let us take a look at why you would want to use a wire like this.
