Switchboards meet the new standards

The xEnergy modular switchboard system from Eaton’s Electrical Sector has been verified as fully meeting the requirements of BS EN 61439-1 and BS EN 61439-2, the new UK standards for low voltage switchgear assemblies, which were published in January 2010.

The xEnergy system is also compliant with the older and now obsolescent standard, BS EN 60439-1, which specifiers can continue to use until November 2014. The xEnergy modular switchboard system has been designed to provide configuration flexibility, so that users can build assemblies to meet their specific requirements. The system is made up of fully tested function modules, which have internal separation up to Form 4.

xEnergy switchboards can accommodate incomers and bus-section switches with ratings up to 4,000A and outgoing sections with switching and protective devices rated up to 630A. The system supports three-pole, four-pole and three-pole-plus-neutral configurations, making it suitable for all normal industrial and commercial applications.

In addition to the power sections, control sections can also be provided as required to accommodate, for example, motor starters, power factor correction modules, variable speed drives, soft starters and automation solutions. Empty sections can readily be incorporated in the assemblies to allow for easy future expansion.

The xEnergy system has been developed to satisfy requirements for detailed monitoring of energy usage. It offers extensive provision for the inclusion of metering and sub-metering, making it easy for users to comply with Part L2 of the Building Regulations and similar legislation.
