Power and Lighting In One SystemRead More >> Read Less >>
Similar to traditional track lighting, the busway has an open track that can accommodate any lighting fixture. In contrast with traditional track lighting, the same Starline Track Busway run can be utilized to simultaneously power lights plus small loads such as power tools, security cameras, speakers, etc. This unique feature significantly reduces installation time and material costs.
Plug-and-Play, Customizable Plug-In UnitsRead More >> Read Less >>
With more than 60 million possible combinations, Starline Plug-In Units are vital for the flexibility of your operation. Finger safe, plug-and-play units can be positioned at any point along the continuous access slot that runs along the base of the Starline Track Busway system. Cleverly designed, the paddle-head connector allows safe insertion before being turned 90 degrees for full engagement. Units are fully customizable and can incorporate well-known industrial components such as Walther® connectors, Meltric® connectors, Bussmann® fuses, etc.
Busway and Compressed AirRead More >> Read Less >>
The combined installation of compressed air lines, such as Parker’s TransAir® flexible compressed air, with Starline Track Busway provides additional savings to automotive makers and suppliers. These two necessities—electric power and compressed air—are essential to operation and can now be installed together, which decreases labor costs.
Starline Track Busway supports up to 75 lbs (34 kg) of hanging weight between vertical supports in every 10 ft (3 meter) section, allowing TransAir® installation in the same unistrut structure for optimal savings and installation time reduction.
Power for ConveyorsRead More >> Read Less >>
Deploying the same ‘plug n play’ principle as Track Busway, Plug-In Raceway also excels at providing power to industrial environments. Scalable and relocatable, the raceway makes a perfect addition to lean manufacturing environments.
Raceway gives you the power to meet future changing facility needs by being able to easily expand, reconfigure or relocate the system. Simply snap the pre-assembled modules into place along the backplane of the raceway wherever a connection to power is required such as conveyors, testing labs, and even walls in conference rooms, office areas, and cafeterias.
Renewable Integration: DC Rated SolutionsRead More >> Read Less >>
Rated for DC Power, Starline Track Busway provides the infrastructure your business needs to integrate several renewable energy power sources such as batteries, solar cells, DC lighting, etc.
