The Legrand DMX3 is a range of Low voltage ACBs designed to optimize space in the panel, maximize cost, enhance the safety, efficiency, and reliable performance of any electrical distribution network. The DMX3 rating ranges from 800A to 6300 A in 3 different frame sizes (DMX3-N, DMX3-H, DMX3-L) and breaking capacities (50ka,65ka, and 100ka). The DMX3 air circuit breakers also come in either fixed or draw-out versions in all the ratings and respective frame sizes. All protection units for these...

Utility power companies such as KPLC have well-designed tariffs upon which every consumer of electricity is metered on. These tariff structures differ from one consumer to the other, depending on the agreement that exists between the utility power company and the consumer.   Therefore, to ensure that power billing is possible, energy meters are supplied to each consumer by these utility companies. The meters are then installed on meter boards while adhering to the applicable standards as ordained by KPLC....

What Is a Voltage Stabilizer? A voltage stabilizer is a piece of electrical equipment designed to provide constant clean power( i.e stable voltage at its output terminals regardless of the changes in the input/incoming supply voltage). By doing so, electrical machines and equipment are protected against sustained over-voltages/Voltage spikes, under-voltage/ brownouts, and other transient surges. Why Voltage stabilizers are required. Most electrical appliances and machines are sensitive to voltage fluctuations. Voltage spikes/sustained overvoltage and momentary/sustained under voltages are detrimental to...

PHASE FAILURE RELAYS Three-phase equipment, more so motors, must be connected to the rated nominal voltage for them to function well. If there is any loss/disconnection in any of these phases, then the motor will continue operating with the remaining two. This phenomenon is called phase failure or single phasing. When single phasing occurs, the motor continues to operate at reduced speed and experiences vibrations. Moreover, the line current also increases appreciably in the remaining phases. This increase in current...

The Industrial Power Gem. The consequences of poor power quality are far-reaching; these may include unscheduled downtime, low equipment life, reduced productivity, and penalties that have a significant financial impact on the end-user. However, the equalizer technology from Power controls by Elspec which is the world’s fastest real-time power quality enhancement system optimizes all power quality factors and more, for a variety of dynamic fast-changing balanced, unbalanced & single-phase loads. The equalizer features electronic switching of 5-20 Milliseconds @ 50...

The introduction of smart meters by KPLC has brought forth unprecedented problems to electricity consumers, especially those with large inductive loads. Most of the available old range of pf controllers in the market are not fast switching and also tend to use one CT as opposed to the new range of pf controllers that use three current transformers. The efficiency and accuracy of an automatic power factor correction bank in correcting the low power factor is subject to the quality...

Low voltage panels are integral components of the electrical distribution system. These panels are essential for branching electrical circuits. The main component of the LV panel is the switchgear. Switchgear comprises electrical disconnections that are essential for the control, isolation, and protection of electrical equipment. They include fuses, circuit breakers, contactors, Earth Leakage Circuit Breakers (ELCBs), and relays.  Power controls Ltd is an industry leader in the design, manufacture, assembly, as well as importation of; quality,well-engineered, and cosmetically appealing LV...
