PDI Busway

The PowerWave Bus System is available in sizes ranging from 160-800 amps and utilizes a continuous plug-in style rail. The overhead bus rail has an integrated monitoring and isolated ground channels as is the smallest form factor saving space in your facility. Combine the features and PowerWave Bus System is the most flexible, robust and complete solution on the market



One-piece aluminum busway housing with integrated isolated ground and communications channels.

Tap-Off Boxes

Custom enclosure that distributes power from the busrail to specific loads. Six breaker poles and up to 80Amps of power can be fed through a single tap off box.

Splice Connector

Cam-actuated junction allows the busway sections to be joined both electrically and mechanically with a single component utilizing minimal tools.

End Feed

Enclosure that supplies power to the busrail. End Feeds can be placed at either end or in the center of the bus run.


Branch Circuit Monitoring System (BCMS) that can be integrated into the tap-off box, end feed or both. Power data is transmitted to local monitors, integrated into existing building management systems.

Elbow, Tee & Cross Sections

Busrail sections that enable bus run turns to be turned in 90 degree increments.

Mounting Hardware

Brackets and hangers that enable the busrail to be mounted from ceilings and walls in both vertical and horizontal axes.

Industry Standards

Explore the Industry Standards that the PowerWave Bus System meets and exceeds.

PDI’s new PowerWave Silver™ bus system provides a new level of innovation, flexibility and cost-effectiveness in power configuration, making the platform an ideal solution for server racks in medium to large data center facilities in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

Innovative Compact Design

The unique PowerWave Silver design lets you install a dual redundant system in less than 300mm of space—critical for data center retrofit projects where space above server racks is both limited and restrictive.

Efficient Configurability

Using a standard coupling, customers can add any end-feed to configure their system simply and easily on-site without having to order special parts. This patent pending design allows electrical contractors to safely install a coupling with no special tools—all in less than two minutes.

Safe Installation for Live Applications

Each PowerWave Silver tap-off box has a two-stage insertion into the bus rail. Ground connections are automatically inserted before contact is made with conductors, thus ensuring safe installation for live systems.

Power Traceability

Data center managers can now trace power from each server, thus ensuring limited risk of terminating power to the wrong rack.

Industry-Leading Busway Tap-Off Box Density

Using innovative coupling technology, PowerWave Silver minimizes keep-out areas, thereby making more busway space available for tap-off boxes. Tap-off boxes can now overlap couplings, improving the value of the continuous rail design.

Lightweight Aluminum Conductors

Newly engineered end feeds, couplings, bus rails and elbows feature a lightweight design that makes the system easy to configure and safe to install.

Cost-Effective Solution

PowerWave Silver’s unique lightweight aluminum design, ease of installation, low lead times, and scalability combine for a strong, cost-effective solution for African, Asian, and Latin American data center and network managers.
