Legibility of distribution : Electrical architecture components are easy
to locate and to identify
Servicing in front of the cabinet
without walking to a remote location power distribution unit to turn off the circuit to the cabinet,
risking the human error of shutting off the wrong circuit.
The solution brings you flexibility

benefits
iBusway for Data Center key benefits 1/2
Availability
Thanks to the decentralized distribution the power availability is increased by a factor 1,6
compare to low voltage switchboard & cable distribution
The monitoring of the branch circuit load enables to anticipate potential tripping
The default localization reduce the servicing time
Energy efficiency
Schneider Electric Power E&S Barocci October 2009
19
Energy efficiency
The solution measures the energy of the racks and enables to analyze and to envisage actions to
optimize energy
The small size of the busway compare to cable improves raised floor cooling
Thanks to the decentralized distribution the copper losses are reduced
Contribute to sustainable development
No hazardous substance
Clean, reusable and fully recyclable
iBusway for Data Center key benefits 2/2
Flexibility
Tap-off units are plug and play power on
The monitoring system can be set up directly by the electrical team in the IT room
Speed of deployment
Thanks to modular system, basic architectures can be copied and adapted to each size,

20
Thanks to modular system, basic architectures can be copied and adapted to each size,
shape and data centers uses
Tap-off unit are pre-wired and pre-tested in workshop
Busway and tap-off units are plug and play to reduce the work on site
The monitoring system is ready to use
Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
Optimized investment and maintenance costs reduced the TCO by 5 to 10% vs Low
Voltage switchboard & cable
Enable capacity management and sub-billing
Availability is drastically
increased
The decentralized electrical distribution architecture based
on Busway is much more reliable than the traditional
centralized solution based on cables and PDU.
This result comes mainly from the architecture and not
from the reliability difference between busway and cables.
