What is QCQ?

  • 48-hour quote turnaround on any concept
  • Illustrated CAD assembly of Wöhner components applied according to our technical experience
  • Complete bill of materials for the illustrated assembly

With QCQ, there is:

  • No need to invest in a long learning curve for the development of a design – just tell us what you’re trying to do
  • No need to worry about every single part – our quotation will include a complete bill of materials
  • No need to worry about long lead times – 95% of components are stocked in North America
  • No need to wait – we’ll provide a solution while the concept is fresh in your mind

System design requirements

The more information you provide the more detailed our draft solution.

1. What is the system voltage and wiring configuration?

Wöhner systems can be designed for both AC and DC voltages up to 1000 V. We can incorporate busbars and supports for 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 wire systems.

Parameters
1 bar - Ground
2 bars - DC +/-
3 bars - 3ø
4 bars - 3ø+N or G
5 bars - 3ø+N+G

Example*
480 VAC, 3ø

2. What is the total current requirement of the system?

Wöhner systems utilize 4 standard gauges of busbar for systems up to 756 A and 3 special profile busbars for systems up to 2000 A. With design considerations, we can achieves current ratings up to 4000 A.

Parameters
12 x 5 – 150 A
20 x 5 – 362 A
30 x 5 – 500 A
30 x 10 – 756 A
TT500 – 1,200 A
TT720 – 1,400 A
TTT – 2,000 A

Example*
600 amps

3. What is the main over-current protection device and where is it mounted?

Identifying the make and model of the fuses, the fusible switch, the molded case circuit breaker or the lack of a main over-current device (main lug only) will allow us to recommend the most space saving design.

Parameters
I.D.
Make and Model

Example*
ABB T5
MCCB
Busbar mounted

4. Size, count and construction of incoming cables?

Wöhner systems can accommodate up to 600 MCM cables (300 mm²). For higher current ratings we will use parallel AWG conductors or propose insulated flat flexible busbar.

Parameters
AWG#16 to 600
MCM or Flat Flex

Example*
AWG 600 MCM,
one per phase,
into lugs on ABB
T5 breaker

5. Define the system branch circuits?

A Wöhner system is best suited to applications with at least 4 branch circuits – the more the better. It’s all about power distribution to the branch circuits.

Parameters
MCCBs
IEC Motor Controls
DIN Power Devices
Fused Circuits
Power Taps

Example*
1x 100A Class J
1x 200A Class J
2x ABB T2
1x ABB T4

6. Any size or space limitations?

The busbar system may allow you to fit your system into a smaller, less expensive enclosure. It’s a great way to beat the competition on system size and labor.

Parameters
Enclosure H x W x D
Panel H x W
Vertical or horizontal
Shipping splits

Example*
72” x 48” x 12”
NEMA 4

7. Other considerations?

Does the system need to be UL 508 compliant? Has a required SCCR been determined? Any international listings needed?

Parameters
UL 508
IEC
Up to 100 kA SCCR

Example*
UL 508

* Example: These responses resulted in the system quotation illustrated above. It was determined that the system would fit into a 48-inch wide enclosure. Six holes were drilled and tapped to support the busbar structure, dramatically decreasing assembly time.

Additional information (not required)

  • Photo of the current panel design.
  • Scanned or electronically generated panel layout and the system bill of materials.
  • System one-line diagram showing the flow of your system.
  • Design sketches
