Many of us just throw the light switch on and there is light! Electricity has become such a convenient and necessary part of our lives. However, many of us never even give a second thought as to what goes into electrical distribution. Although electricity is an important part of our lives in Cleveland & Northeast Ohio, it can also be hazardous.
It is important that electricity is distributed in a safe and secure manner. Accidents occur due to a lack of safety at different power distribution units. Several handling hazards are put in place to avoid a deadly outcome. One of those handling hazards is called switchgear and in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio we can help.
While there are many safety devices and mechanisms that exist to help maintain security levels at all distribution and substations, switchgear is one of the most popular. Due to the various functions and features of switchgears listed below, we begin to understand why it is the chosen safeguard.
At Portman Electric we have the experience and knowledge as electrical contractors to install, maintain and repair switchgears. We focus our usage of switchgears to two main types; Metal enclosed switchgear and metal clad switchgear. We have found their usage in commercial and residential electrical connections necessary. However, in Industrial electrical connections we have found ultimate success!
For industrial application in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio, the metal clad switchgear is ideal. It is commonly used to protect switching transformers, motors, generators, capacitors, buses, general feed lines and circuit breakers. Due to its weatherproof nature, it is ideal for outdoor installation. Industrial plants or factories have found using this type of switchgear helps better organize distribution of power to the machines employed in an industrial setting.
Usually found indoors in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio, as it used for medium to low voltage applications. Ideal for residential or commercial use as metal enclosed switchgear provides an added degree of protection to personnel or residents that are in close proximity to the equipment. Should an internal arc occur the extra protection is there.
