Is it permissible to connect I-Line II aluminum busway to copper busway?

Issue:
Is it permissible to connect I-Line II aluminum busway to copper busway?

Product Line:
Busway.

Environment:
Products sold in the United States.

Cause:
Product features.

Resolution:
All of the bus bars (aluminum and copper) are plated to reduce corrosion and prevent galvanic reaction between the two bus bar materials. Therefore it is not a problem to have copper bars connected to aluminum bars. However, in most cases a copper to aluminum busway reducer will be required since copper busway is in a smaller housing than aluminum busway. This can be obtain by working with the local sales office for a special quote.
