Frequently Asked Questions

Click a question to jump to the answers below:

What are the differences in the forms of separation?        [back to top]

This refers to the different types of panels available, according to the complexity of the systems they are required to control. The simplest is an 'open wardrobe' type panel (Forms 1 and 2) while Forms 3 and 4 refer to compartmentalised panels where different aspects of a process can be separated to allow individual control. Click onto our Guide to forms of separation to view our diagram and list of the different types of panels.

How do you size overloads?        [back to top]

As with all overloads, we select an overload range with the desired value midrange. For an assisted Star Delta starter, select the overload using the following calculation: FLC x 0.58 = the desired value.

Do you carry out installations?        [back to top]

We have the facilities to carry out a complete start to finish service, including electrical installation. However the client is at liberty to select and use his own electrical contractor. We will provide all the necessary technical advice, both to the client and the electrical contractor, to ensure satisfactory completion of the project.

Can you provide a commissioning or pre-commissioning service?    [back to top]

Yes, we can provide personnel to different levels of expertise to fulfil all customer requirements.

Do you modify or update other manufacturers' work?        [back to top]

We can carry out comprehensive site modifications on other people's panels. One of our strengths is our technical expertise and our insistence on being fully customer focused. This means we address all problems, even if they have originated from another manufacturer.
