Our solution began with designing a system of compatible hardware that could be seamlessly integrated. Our experts researched the original program and electrical schematics to devise a smooth installation and startup plan. The design also had to be aligned with current electrical standards, including the National Electric Code (NEC) and UL Standards. Design requirements included AC and DC circuit isolation for a low voltage application, and all terminations, namely the e-stop tie-in and uninterrupted power sources, had to be easily recognizable in the prints and pull list.
Due to the limited space within the cabinet, we were unable to use a sequester bay type enclosure for main power feed isolation. Instead, we used an SCE enclosure with an arc-rated lockbox so the customer could isolate the main breaker from the rest of the components in the cabinet. Because there was an additional UPS used for control power (24VDC), the lockbox allowed the customer to isolate and de-energize the 480v portion of this panel.
Quad Plus was able to configure all new compatible hardware into an existing system. This allowed for a seamless installation and integration during startup.
