Product Overview

Combine large and small conductors on  a single 1000A bus bar

Complex electrical systems benefit from the ability to consolidate large and small terminals on a single bus bar. Blue Sea Systems designed this high amperage bus bar to handle a variety of terminals and keep them organized to speed up installation and reduce troubleshooting time. Ideal for centralizing ground conductors or as a positive distribution point, each of these bus bars features a “Z” shaped stepped design to allow wires to enter the bus bar from the same side and  separate large and small conductors. The end caps are molded to receive the same “Z” shape to create more terminal space by installing adjacent PowerBars using shared end caps.

The tin-plated copper bus and studs stand up to the high torque required to achieve the best possible conductivity. Serrated flanged nuts and captive washer terminal screws simplify securing conductors and ensure the best possible connection. An included snap on cover satisfies ABYC and USCG requirements to insulate terminals from accidental cross current contact. Available in 8 and 12 stud models with 5/16" or 3/8" studs, pick the right PowerBar or PowerBars for your application.
