Spanish term or phrase: embarrados, trafos, SAI
This appears in an invitation to tender. "Trafos" I think are "transformers", but can anyone tell me what "embarrados" are in an electrical context. I have a Spanish definition - some kind of connection between an electrical panel and the network, but no English term.

Explanation:
This should really be 3 separate questions, one for each term....

Embarrado - busbars, system of busbars (I am almost positive this is in the glossary already)
Trafos are indeed transformers
SAI - Sistema de Alimentación Ininterrumpida = UPS - Uninterruptible Power Supply
