Backed by an over 30-year legacy of simplifying power distribution through track busways, the Series-S’ IP54 protection rating creates new possibilities for industrial and commercial customers.
West Hartford, CONN – August 10, 2023 – Legrand, the global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures, is proud to unveil the next generation Starline Series-S Track Busway power distribution system. This revolutionary product combines the performance, functionality and flexibility of Starline’s proven track busway technology with the added benefit of an IP54 ingress-protection rating. As a result, Legrand is meeting the growing commercial and industrial demand for splashproof, highly dust-resistant and extremely flexible electrical power distribution systems.
According to Data Bridge Market Research, the busway market will reach a valuation of USD $3.5 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 8.6 percent. This growth will be driven by a growing desire for user-friendly, cost-effective and highly adaptable electrical distribution systems that support changing load locations in environments with limited space. For over 30 years, Starline has been meeting this need with innovative, easy-to-use track busway designs that reduce costs while maximizing efficiency and scalability. With a design that features multiple mounting options, a continuous access slot and configurable plug-in units that can be connected and disconnected without de-energizing the busway, Starline has helped some of the biggest names in the commercial and industrial space eliminate their dependency on busduct as well as pipe and wire solutions.
Since 2019, Starline has been a part of the Legrand family, and the two companies have worked to build upon this legacy. The result is the new Series-S Track Busway family of products, which allows users to enjoy all the benefits of Starline’s innovative design anywhere that additional water, dust or other contaminants require up to an IP54 (including IP44) or NEMA 3R rating. This opens Starline’s track busway technology for use in wet environments, dusty or debris-contaminated manufacturing, areas with sprinkler or splash-proof requirements, and outdoor applications.
“We’ve listened to the needs of our customers and have worked closely with our engineers to create a new kind of track busway that can do more for facility managers in all kinds of environments,” says Lance Sabados, VP and General Manager Starline Busway. “With the Series-S Track Busway, our customers now have access to flexible power distribution for an entirely new array of applications and environments. We are bringing the benefits of our proven track busway technology to more places so our customers, from general manufacturing and biomedicine to automotive manufacturing and electric vehicle supply infrastructure, can deliver the innovations that will transform our world for the better.”
Starline Series-S Track Busway’s protection level extends to its uniquely designed plug-in units, which are offered with a wide variety of watertight IEC- and NEMA-rated devices to meet any need. Other features include:
- Available in 5- and 10-foot sections, custom lengths upon request
- 100-to-1200-amp systems, 4 pole, rated up to 600Vac or 600Vdc
- UL, IEC and ETL certifications
