Default [B]Buss[/B]man Sell [B]Bus[/B] Bars

It is a small thing and many in our trade spell Buss as in Bus Bars, Busway as Buss Bars or Bussway.

Everything I have read spells bus BUS.

In electric power distribution, a busbar (also bus bar, and sometimes misspelled as buss bar or bussbar) is a metallic strip or bar, typically housed inside switchgear, panel boards, and busway enclosures for local high current power distribution. They are also used to connect high voltage equipment at electrical switchyards, and low voltage equipment in battery banks. They are generally uninsulated and have sufficient stiffness to be supported in the air by insulated pillars. These features allow sufficient cooling of the conductors, and the ability to tap in at various points without creating a new joint.

Thanks for the clarification, I usually try very hard to spellcheck everything I do but did not think to check that particular word. Was thinking that bus would be a vehicle and buss as in Bussman would be the spelling for an electrical application. Micromind, by your post is busses the plural or is buses?

Thanks Steve

If it was just you it would be no biggy, but this happens across the industry and I believe we should strive to use appropriate names for products we handle daily
