On-site difficulties of cabling through a wall and tight access were overcome by a pair of ProBend 800 A rated bus bars leading to a 1600 A Pro 2000 switch board.
Originating in 1985, Printpak of Hinckley have grown substantially as a specialist provider of MIS System, CAD sampling, CTP printing, die cutting, windowing, gluing and packaging. As part of their ongoing investments the introduction of more modern equipment necessitated a review of their main electrical supply.
Chosen installation contractor, Armstrong Electrical of Nuneaton with advice from Western Power asked Proteus Industrial Switchgear of Telford to carry out a site survey and recommend a suitable solution. On-site difficulties of cabling through a wall and tight access were overcome by a pair of ProBend 800 A rated bus bars leading to a 1600 A Pro 2000 switch board. The totally bespoke unit also provided an additional Power Factor Correction (PFC) section for possible future use.
“Working closely with a UK manufacturer like Proteus was great as we could quickly overcome any difficulties said owner Andrew Armstrong, “and my customer ended up with exactly what suited his requirements without any unnecessary delays”.
