APC iBusway

Reliable, efficient, adaptable power distribution with zero footprint

The iBusway for Data Center solution is a plug-in busway power distribution system designed specifically to deliver power to IT racks. This new solution requires no IT floor footprint and eliminates centralized cable distribution. Using flexible pre-assembled tap-off units and featuring PowerLogic™ energy metering, iBusway for Data Centers is an aesthetic, modular solution that minimizes unintended downtime, adapts to changing needs, and optimizes your data center availability and energy efficiency.



  • High density
  • With up to 20 plug-in openings every 10 feet, this high-density solution ensures convenient placement of tap off units above the IT racks they support and provides flexibility to meet future power demands.
  • Quick installation
  • The iBusway for Data Center solution uses bolted snap-fit hangers and plug-in joint connections, which simplify installation and eliminate the need for expensive special tools.


  • Factory-assembled and tested units
  • Reduce installation time and effort, and eliminate wiring mistakes during installation, with preassembled units that snap together.
  • Eliminate cable clutter
  • Aesthetic busway straights and tap off units with standard-length cables streamline the power distribution solution, simplify cable management, and reduce the risk of human error during moves, adds, and changes.
  • Improved power availability
  • Above-the-row busway system eliminates underfloor cable distribution and overloaded PDU panels while reducing the chance for human error when moving, adding, or changing critical branch circuits.

Total Cost of Ownership

  • Superior reliability
  • Powerbus busway uses silver-plated copper bus conductors for the greatest electrical efficiency.
  • Energy efficient
  • Copper bus bars reduce heat losses and lower cooling demand.
  • Overhead design
  • Installing the power distribution solution above the row frees valuable data center space for additional revenue-generating IT equipment.


  • Real-time power monitoring
  • Monitor data usage in real time remotely using a Web browser.
  • Enhanced connection-point visibility
  • Quickly identify and reconfigure critical branch circuits – Tap Off Units with standard-length cables simplify identification of the circuit that supports each IT load in the data center row.
