System cuts the complexity of panel design

A low-voltage electrical distribution system design to reduce the complexities often associated with panel design is available from local supplier ElectroMechanica (EM).
According to EM Product Manager Christo van Rensburg 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 4 000 A.
“This is a tried-and-tested international solution,” he said, adding that the system is designed around a rigid frame that offers adaptability, ease of assembly, and quick build times, along with quality components.
The Quadro+ system offers support of essential third-party products like Socomec change over-switches, Lovato motor control and metering, Delta variable speed drives (VSDs) 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.”
Van Rensburg said 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. Quadro+ is manufactured to exacting standards in Italy to IEC and EN-62439-1&2 standards. This means it meets the latest international standards of safety, performance and reliability.”
He said Quadro+ 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 a Quadro+ frame. All the screws are pre-mounted for a hassle-free and quick turnaround time.
“Thanks to the supporting HagerCad software, planning and designing your system is intuitive, simple and fast. You’ll also benefit from local technical support and expertise.”
