How to carry out a modular rail electrical installation in 3 easy steps?


As we mentioned in the previous post, a modular rail electrical installation is the safest and most efficient option for implementation on a bus.

This is the perfect alternative to conventional fixed sockets. The electrical distribution will no longer be subject to the position of the fixed sockets. From now, you will not have to worry about the cost, time, hassle or inconvenience caused by changing the position of the sockets.

Among others, this offers us the following advantages:

  • Modular installation. You can move or remove the seats without affecting the installation at all.
  • The electrical installation can be carried out in a few hours, this speed of installation reducing labour costs.
  • Being modular, repairs are easier; a vehicle will not have to be immobilised if a seat has to be re-upholstered.
  • You can reconfigure the number of seats whenever you wish without affecting the installation.

Due to the great advantages offered by the modular rail system, it will be the most suitable option for implementing the electrical installations. It is a very easy system to install, as in the time spent screwing in the cable duct in a conventional fixed system, the full installation of a modular rail system can be completed.

The 3 steps to follow to implement a modular rail electrical installation are as follows:

STEP 1: Request a consultation to study the needs of the vehicle. We measure the total metres to install to calculate the necessary rails, as well as the start and end of segments.

STEP 2: Plan the installation, with a plan created by Azimut, explaining the installation in detail.


STEP 3: Once you have the necessary material, the rails need only be screwed in and powered at the ends.

You now have your system ready to use; select the sockets and components to connect and allow your passengers to enjoy the journey.


Other key points of this solution:

This rail may support 32 amps and has ground connection cabling for safety.

Another of the great advantages of this modular system is resolving problems of connecting seats in the area for passengers with reduced mobility (PRM). We use the system to be able to detach the seats of the PRM without affecting the rest of the electrical or entertainment installations.

It is an innovative electrical distribution rail which allows any bus to be able to add, remove or replace sockets easily and safely, where and when necessary, along their whole length. With a wide variety of finish options to satisfy both electrical supply and design needs. Components can be installed on the rail, such as sockets from any country, USB sockets, or specific connectors for each pair of seats, thereby facilitating the entertainment system installations, for example. Additionally, they can also be locked so that they cannot be manipulated or lost, providing a safe, protected system without complications.
