With the evolving times and technological advancements, many devices have become compact while being equally efficient and reliable. People are drawn towards small and efficient devices because of many reasons. One of the biggest reasons is that the more compact the device, the more room it leaves for other things to fit in. For example, the shift from using PCs to portable computer systems and laptops. While PCs were bulky and occupied too much space, laptops are small, sleek, and handy in nature. Along the same lines, let’s dive into how integrated panel boards help save space at a significant level.
So, why do integrated electrical panel boards require less space than stick-built? On a basic level, it’s because the construction of these panels in the factory is done in a way that would not be allowed in the field as we can carry out thorough testing of the finished products and ensure it meets all pertinent fire and safety standards.
About Integrated Electrical Panel Boards’ Construction
Fundamentally, integrated panel boards are highly customisable in nature. When they are in production, they are assembled and tested in a way that is best suited to your specifications. Then, to set it up at the site, all you must do is make few connections, and it is ready to go within a couple of hours. Panel boards might not seem very cost-efficient in the beginning, but it surely brings back a substantial return on investment. Another common question that comes to one’s mind while learning about integrated electrical panel boards is how it deals with clearing and heat dissipation issues? It is here when the advantages of customisation and assimilation come into play.
The process commences with a dead front switch board controller. The enclosure to evacuate the heat from the transformer is designed in a way that the temperature inside the enclosure falls within the limits of the panel board components. To take the process ahead, each unit goes through dielectric tests and functional tests in the factory, which is the key difference between stick built and integrated electrical panels.
Now, this must make you wonder—why can’t an electrician buy all the parts and build a similar panel? Essentially, an electrician may carry the potential to clear all the steps, but he/she might not be able to comply with the set electrical standards.
An integrated electrical panel board brings many other benefits. It accelerates faster inspection, boosts reliability, produces smaller footprints, and reduces both time and labour. There have been multiple instances where saving up space in the electrical department/electrical room has brought praise-worthy rewards. Let us take up an example of a hospital. If enough space is saved in the electrical room, it may give a way to set up an extra bed. Hence, indeed investing into an integrated panel board proves to be a beneficial investment in every sector.
The entire process of configuring the panel board might seem like an easy task, but it requires a lot of preplanning and calculation. Furthermore, safe installation is only possible when the installers precisely understand the demands of the site and deliver accordingly. Therefore, whenever you have made up your mind to switch to panel boards, it is advisable to start planning a little early, research thoroughly and opt for quality devices and services in order to gain significant benefits.
