Canalis KR

Busbar trunking for power distribution in harsh environments and critical applications, up to 6300A

Part of Line Series

Molded busbar trunking for high power distribution from 800A to 6300A

Canalis KR
  • Features

    Deliver power distribution in harsh environments and critical applications.
    Canalis KR is designed for high power transport from 800A to 6300A in harsh environment.  Its proven design is based on epoxy resin technology. It is used for 20 years in electrical distribution: robust, reliable, and maintenance free. The KR/KT adaptor offers seamless continuity between Canalis KR and Canalis KT. Canalis KR provides a high degree of protection IP68. It is suitable for outdoor application, in aggressive atmospheres or when crossing explosive environments. Canalis KR ensures the integrity of circuit in the event of fire. It can be used in industrial, critical buildings, and tertiary buildings infrastructures.
