Our services

Consulting

Sharing knowledge is our passion

We start our relationship with an in-depth consultation in which we analyse your requirements and identify areas where we see room for improvement. Next, we design and configure the solutions to meet your requirements while maximising their value to you.

Your ideas become reality with the help of our expert designers who are ready to freely share their knowledge and provide advisory and technical support, all with the clear aim of exceeding your expectations. Our designers receive regular training in order to maintain and improve their skills with switchgear and control cabinets manufacture and testing, enabling us to set worldwide standards.

 

Planning and Construction

We create projects by planing and designing them from a scratch as well as delivering technical documentation. This means all switchgear are being built in-house. Know-how of our engineers enable you to be sure right from the planning phase that your requirements will be implemented the exact in the way you want it.

Production

We deliver comprehensive end-to-end solutions on time because we produce the switchgear and control cabinets independently. Our engineers, logistics, production and quality control staff work shoulder to shoulder, ensuring flexibility in the project and allowing any pressing changes to be made right away – an asset in the fast-moving development of a project.

We deliver:

  • Switchgear and control cabinets – small and large-scale production, from individual switchgear cabinets to highly complex sets of control cabinets
  • Low-voltage cabinets up to 5000A
  • guaranteed power supply systems
  • Systematic testing and pre-commissioning
  • On-site installation
  • Service and maintenance

We are proud that our switchgear and control cabinets run smoothly on every continent.

Our yearly production volume results in:

  • nearly 1,000 pieces of large switchgears or sets of control cabinets
  • more than 1,500 pieces of medium-sized switchgears
  • more than 3,000 pieces of small cabinets

Testing

We check and test the switchgears in detail at intervals recommended by the DGUV 3 standard and other regulations. This also includes the preparation of the necessary post-control documentation.

The test procedures include:

  • Cold test run
  • I/O checking
  • Functional tests
  • Optimization of controllers, sensors, etc.

Assembly

We provide more

Once your project is complete, our experts remain at your disposal. We handle all maintenance tasks, modification, and upgrades, keeping your project running and up-to-date.

We install your switchgear and the electrical wiring and components for your machinery and technical installations, and then perform the commissioning on-site. Our experts have carried out such projects all over the world.

Once the technical installations are in place, they are commissioned by our specialists, who monitor the start-up process, test availability, and optimize processes to quickly integrate the technical installations into the production process. Our services also include shift supervision by our engineers and the training of operator and maintenance personnel.

Standardisation

We will sit down with you and standardise your switchgear and controllers as much as possible to avoid needless costs. For example, we can develop a configuration framework that you can use to build different options for specific control tasks.

UL 508 A

We are authorised to design and build industrial control panels certified to meet UL 508A requirements. UL 508A covers panels for applications that operate at a voltage of 600 V or less. The United States and many other countries require machines and equipment to be UL certified and listed. To meet this standard, the components assembled into a control panel or machine must be properly used and assembled as defined in UL 508A.

EN 61439

We manufacture our switchgear and controlgear to EN 61439, the universal standard on safety requirements for low-voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies. It contains not only product standards, but also general specifications for all types of low-voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies as well as design rules that can also be used for all switchgear and controlgear assemblies.

As a switchgear and controlgear manufacturer, we are responsible for:

  • Designing power switchgear and controlgear (PSC) assemblies in accordance with the specified rating data
  • Standards compliance vis-à-vis the customer
  • Compliance with the design verification conducted by the original manufacturer
  • Equipment labelling and documentation
  • Performing routine verification and documentation

We take this responsibility very seriously. We thoroughly check every piece of switchgear and controlgear before it leaves our facility, including:

  • Electrical, mechanical and thermal tests as required
  • Measurement of air gaps and leakage paths
  • Interpolation from a tested reference
  • Calculation of temperature rise for switchgear and controlgear assembly InA ≤ 1,600 A 

EPLAN P8

EPLAN Electric P8 is a CAE software solution for project planning, documentation and management of electrotechnical automation projects. It is based on an innovative platform technology that enables horizontal and vertical integration in engineering.

International standards such as IEC 81346, ANSI, JIC, NFPA, GB or the Russian GOST are also supported.

Because we work with EPLAN P8/P5.x for all projects, compatibility with your professional standards is guaranteed at all times.
