When designing an energy supply system, sometimes there is a need for a very compact system, carrying power and data yet running at high speed over a long travel distance.   Often these requirements are achievable using a busbar, but only for electrical power and some data.  Busbars, however, are also prone to failure due to corrosion, blockage by dust and debris or wear over time.  Also, if fluids or high-speed data are required, busbars cannot be used. If cables are used in such applications they can be found dragging on the concrete, completely unprotected against the elements and this causes damage, which ultimately causes stoppages. The competing demands of size (compact, few cables) versus strength (l...
