Cable Bus vs. Electrical Conduit
Comparison of the two technologies
Electrical Conduits are defined in the NEC as a raceway of circular cross section with associated fittings, couplings, connectors for the installation of electrical conductors.
Types of Electrical Conduit
There are many types of conduits; they can be either flexible or rigid. With or without options such as liquid-tight, or flame retardant. Conduits are made from materials such as:
- Fire Clay
Comparison of Bus Duct and Cable Bus
|Little engineering requirements.
|Fully engineered to minimize loses and wastes.
|High level of protection although:
