KSL & KBSL Conductor Lines

KBSL & KSL Conductor BarsPowerail types KBSL & KSL have been used sucessfully for many years and have been continuously improved and adapted to the latest state of the art. They are conductor lines in a rigid PVC housing with different copper cross sections for rated currents of 40 - 200A. The current collectors, running in ball bearings, are guided by the housing. The main current is transferred by spring-stored carbon brushes. These Condusctor lines are fabricated for indoor applications whereas our type KSLT conductor line is manufactured to withstand outdoor power supplying conditions.

KBSL & KSL Powerail Applications

Powerail types KBSL & KSL are totally enclosed, touch proof conductor systems for safe mobile power feeding of: overhead cranes, monorail systems, electric hoists, automated storage and retrieval systems, electric power tools, machine tools, assembly and test lines, hanger door motors, studio & station lighting systems and many other applications.

KBSL & KSL Powerail Configurations & Features

  • Type KBSL/KSL is mainly used for indoor plants and is manufactured in green plastic-housings for 4 and 5 poles. Up to 100A we can supply the powerail with plug-in joints. Otherwise the sections are connected bolted joints. The KBSL is without stiffener clamps.
  • Type KSLT for indoor and outdoor plants is manufactured in grey plastic-housings for 4 and 5 poles.

Compact arrangement, corrosion resistance, and simple assembly are the essential features. The ranges of applications are overhead and elongated tracks for cranes, monorails, electric hoists, electric tools, stacking systems, as well as many other applications for supplying power to moving power loads.
