New Switchboards & Energy Efficiency

New Main Switchboards Can Includes Voltage Optimisers and More

Richmond Library had an old, outdated switchboard  (below in grey) that needed to be upgraded. Since the site had high voltage readings, a voltage optimiser was integrated into the new main switchboard (below right in green) in the bottom right chamber.

Switch rooms are often built around the original switchboards designed for buildings. Thus switch rooms usually do not have much space spare for new technology and equipment, such as voltage optimisers which can have a large footprint. Additionally, delivery of new switchboards into rooms that do not have direct outdoor access can prove very difficult since switchboards do not often fit around tight corners and through narrow doorways.

For these situations, a great option is to upgrade your capital equipment with a  customer design that  suits your site and incorporates energy efficient technology.

SEDAC provided Power Intelligence and Richmond Library with a new integrated main switchboard design. This cutting edge design provided Richmond Library with an easy solution to upgrade their existing main switchboard and  incorporate voltage optimisation technology.

The existing switchboard was in a small room that had no extra space to accommodate a new voltage optimiser. The new switchboard was designed to accommodate all existing circuit requirements, incorporate a voltage optimiser, and fit into the existing space. The old switchboard was dismantled and the new one installed in a single day!
