What is a Busbar?

A busbar is a metallic strip or bar used to conduct electricity within an electrical distribution system. It typically consists of a solid piece of copper or aluminum that is used to connect various electrical components such as circuit breakers, switches, and transformers in an electrical panel or switchboard.

Busbars provide a low-resistance path for electrical current to flow and distribute power efficiently throughout a system. They are often installed within electrical enclosures or panels and are designed to handle high current levels safely. Busbars come in various shapes and sizes depending on the specific application and electrical requirements of the system.
