Cut the complexity of panel design

September 2019 Electrical Power & Protection

A low-voltage electrical distribution system design to reduce the complexities often associated with panel design is available from leading local supplier ElectroMechanica (EM). Quadro+ from Hager combines modularity with familiar low-voltage (LV) components to simplify the design of a professional distribution solution.

The Quadro+ modules include assemblies, equipment and accessories required to build a complete enclosure, with IP30 or IP55 protection levels up to 4000 A. According to EM product manager, Christo van Rensburg: “This is a tried and tested international solution, the Quadro+ system is designed around a rigid frame that offers adaptability, ease of assembly, and quick build times, along with quality components.”

A feature of EM’s value offering is that it can provide customers with complete solutions: when a customer partners with EM, it is able to design and build a complete LV electrical distribution system suited to its requirements.

The Quadro+ system offers support of essential third-party products like Socomec change over-switches, Lovato motor control and metering, Delta variable speed drives and automation products, with little or no additional effort. “This significantly simplifies the complexity associated with completing projects on-time, and gives customers a single point of contact for all of their needs,” highlights van Rensburg.

EM offers a comprehensive range of enclosures, from a two-way surface enclosure to a 168-way flush or surface distribution boards. IP65-rated enclosures are also available. While this range is suitable for residential and small commercial buildings, the Quadro+ system is tailored specifically for the larger commercial and even industrial markets.

“When you select Quadro+, you opt for a fully-tested LV electrical distribution solution that has continually proven its worth in different industries. It is manufactured in Italy to IEC and EN-62439-1&2 standards. This means it meets the latest international standards of safety, performance and reliability,” stresses van Rensburg.

All enclosures are designed with an extremely rigid structure (IK10 and IP55) for extra durability. Cabinets are shipped flat-packed to save on transportation and storage cost. Only eight screws are required to assemble the frame, and all the screws are pre-mounted for quick turnaround time.

“Thanks to the supporting HagerCad software, planning and designing your system is intuitive, simple and fast,” concludes van Rensburg. “You’ll also benefit from local technical support and expertise. Whether designing, building, or installing a distribution system, the Quadro+ solution impresses with its convenience and overall quality. EM and Hager see this as a further opportunity to build on their reputation of being a trusted, reliable, and on-time partner for more than 30 years.”
