A new range of explosion-proof (Ex e) bus-bar systems has been launched by COOPER Crouse-Hinds for metal and moulded plastic enclosures. Suitable for use in hazardous environments with ambient temperatures from –55 to +55°C, the GHG 758 system uses undrilled clamp technology for the connection of cabling, enabling faster, more cost effective assembly and more efficient distribution of electrical energy.

The system is available in high rated currents for 250A and 315A in Ex e certified technology for Zone 1 hazardous areas and provides users with an increased length of usable bus-bar rail of up to 6300mm. It is suitable for use with the company’s GHG 62 range of encapsulated circuit breakers up to 63A; and a 125A rated version will also be available later this year.
