Product Information

Electrification is a safe and economical method to provide electric power to mobile equipment. Electrification is available in 6 types. These include Safe-Lec 2 Conductor Bar, Hevi-Bar II Conductor Bar, Insul 8 8-Bar Conductor Bar, Side Contact Conductor Bar, Saf-T-Bar Series C Conductor Bar, and Saf-T-Bar Conductor Bar, T-Series.


SAFE-LEC 2 V-Contact Conductor Bar System - the new standard in overhead crane electrification. SL 2 is ideal for monorail and material handling system electrification as well. Safe-Lec 2 provides these great benefits:

Positive Tracking - "V-contact" in the bar guides the shoe and provides continuous conductivity. Collector arms articulate in a wide range of motion to help keep the collector shoe in contact with the rail

Safe Insulation - Conductor bar is insulated for IP2 "finger-safe" operation

Bolted Splice - a positive connection that cannot pull apart over time

Minimum Number of Unique Parts - same cover profile fits all bar styles

The Conductix-Wampfler Hevi-Bar II Conductor Bar System delivers the kind of reliable, high-capacity crane rail electric service needed by factories, mills, storage yards, people movers, and other rigorous applications. Hevi-Bar II features:

Effective Heat Dissipation - uses surface area rather than mass to dissipate heat generated by high current conditions

Mounting versatility - can be mounted with the bars next to one another (horizontal) or one above the other (vertical)

A choice of Insulating Covers - standard orange PVC, green PVC for the bonding (ground) conductor bar (500 amp only), black UV-resistant PVC for outdoor use, and medium or high heat versions to withstand higher ambient temperatures

Ease of Installation - a limited number of modular components

Low Maintenance and Long Life - this is truly an "install it once and forget about it" conductor bar system

60 years ago Conductix-Wampfler, under the name Rucker Insul 8" Corporation, was the first to develop the original "8-Bar" electric conductor bar. This innovative design greatly improved the safety of overhead crane electrification. Since then, hundreds of miles of 8-Bar systems have been installed and are in use all over the world. It is truly the industry standard! Conductix-Wampfler Insul 8" 8-Bar Systems are:

UL listed and CSA Approved

Fast and Easy to Install

Easy to Maintain

Complete with a Wide Selection of Special Options - curved bar, corrosion resistant systems, pick-up guides, and a wide variety of brackets.

Special Applications Experience - over 60 years of field use

Conductix-Wampfler Side Contact Conductor Bar is a variation of the 8-Bar system designed for lateral (side) entry of the collector. UL / CSA listed. Side Contact is ideal when there is insufficient room for standard "bottom entry" mounting and/or conductors must be more closely spaced than standard 8-Bar allows. Side-Contact Conductor Bars:

Come with cover and connector pins installed. Copper and Laminate Bars also come with Joint Keepers.

Have expansion sections that are required for every 350 feet (106.7m) for 40, 90, and 110 amp systems, or 250 feet (76.2m) for 250 or 350 amps to compensate for thermal expansion.

This is the original Howell Corporation Saf-T-Bar" Series C conductor bar system. Bars are roll-formed of galvanized steel or copper/steel laminate (250A) or copper (300A and 350A). The "U" shaped contact surface ensures positive tracking of the collector shoe and ensures good contact throughout the travel of the system. The standard material is supplied in 10 ft lengths with all necessary joining hardware. Installation is simple and requires only a jointing tool to connect the rails.


This is the original Howell Corporation Saf-T-Bar T Series system. This system is unique to Conductix-Wampfler and features a captive collector concept resulting in an extremely compact system. The conductor bars are supplied with pre-mounted joints. Using the jointing tool, adjoining rails can be connected quickly and easily. Special spring collectors are constructed of a chromium-copper material which ensures optimized collector wear. Features:

Rapid installation. Slide-on or snap-on joint clips and multiple bar assemblies. One unit mounting for quick, easy installation

Skin-tight, rigid PVC insulation runs cooler, will not deform under clamp pressure

Twin contact conductor. Two internal contact grooves track the collector. Provides for excellent ventilation with high current capacity for its weight Hand-safe design
