IBS/IBSB Advanced Insulated Braided Conductor, Halogen Free

IBS/IBSB Advanced Insulated Braided Conductor, Halogen Free is the ideal ready-to-install flexible wire replacement solution that is specifically designed for connections to all molded case circuit breakers, including the most compact breakers on the market. IBS/IBSB Advanced connects to the front access terminals of the breakers without any additional accessories, such as angular connectors, spreaders, ring terminal connectors or extenders. IBS/IBSB Advanced is available in cross sections of 25 to 240 mm² (49.34 to 273.65 kcmil), lengths from 230 to 1,030 mm (9.06" to 40.55"), and 80 to 700 A.

Manufactured in an ISO 9001 certified automated facility, IBS/IBSB Advanced is formed by weaving high-quality electrolytic copper wire to form a durable low voltage connector with maximum flexibility which allows for more compact power connections to circuit breakers. The IBS/IBSB Advanced allows users to reduce the total size and weight of the installation, improving both design flexibility and assembly aesthetics.

The unique manufacturing process of integral pre-punched palms make IBS/IBSB Advanced ready to connect out of the box. There are no lugs to purchase or install, making connections simpler and faster and eliminates faulty connections due to vibration or fatigue.

IBS/IBSB Advanced is compatible with all major brand molded case circuit breakers.

The advanced technology insulation is a high-resistance low smoke, halogen-free and flame retardant thermoplastic.

IBS/IBSB Advanced does not generate corrosive gases and produces a relatively low smoke opacity in accordance with IEC 61034-2 and UL 2885. The low smoke characteristic improves visibility conditions for people to be able to easily locate the emergency exit and also allows rescue workers to better assess an emergency situation. IBS/IBSB Advanced means greater safety for individuals, less damage for your electrical equipment and less environmental impact.

The halogen–free feature enables a reduction in the quantity of toxic smoke. IBS/IBSB Advanced does not contain any halogens, according to IEC 60754-1 and UL 2885, minimizing toxicity and making it the ideal product for use in enclosed spaces such as data centers, rail, and public facilities such as hospitals and schools. This also facilitates the use of IBS/IBSB Advanced in specific applications such as submarines, switchboards and other enclosed environments that require a low emissions solution.

In addition to the above features, IBS/IBSB Advanced is compliant with the UL 94-V0 testing standard and glow wire test 960 °C. The flame retardant portion of the test illustrates the self-extinguish feature. This superior feature of IBS/IBSB Advanced is also shown by the Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI) at 30%. In case of fire, IBS/IBSB Advanced generates a limited quantity of smoke that is less damaging to your electrical equipment.
