    All electricians know that their profession is not a child’s play. Since, Direct Wholesale Supplies prioritizes your health, it not only makes weather proof switch gears accessible to you but is also concerned about its use.
    To help ensure safe operation sequences of Weatherproof Switchgear, trapped key interlocking provides predefined scenarios of operation. For example, if only one of two sources of supply are permitted to be connected at a given time, the interlock scheme may require that the first switch must be opened to release a key that will allow closing the second switch. Complex schemes are possible.

    Indoor switchgear can also be type tested for internal arc containment. This test is important for user safety as modern switchgear is capable of switching large currents.

     

    Weatherproof Switchgear is often inspected using thermal imaging to assess the state of the system and predict failures before they occur. Other methods include partial discharge testing, using either fixed or portable testers, and emissions  testing using surface-mounted transducers  or  detectors used in outdoor switchyards. Temperature sensors fitted to cables to the switchgear can permanently monitor temperature build-up.

     

    Equipment  is invariably fitted with alarms and interlocks to warn of loss of pressure, and to prevent operation if the pressure falls too low.
    The increasing awareness of dangers associated with high fault levels has resulted in network operators specifying closed-door operations for earth switches and racking breakers. Many European power companies have banned operators from switch rooms while operating. Remote systems are available which allow an operator to rack switchgear from a remote location without the need to wear a protective arc flash hazard suit.

     

    Direct Wholesale Supplies wants to ensure that not only profits are earned  but also the electrical  components supplied are user friendly. A successful  transaction is not when the payment is received by the customer.  It is when the electrician has safely used the electrical consumable that Direct Wholesale Supplies feels at peace, at rest, as if it has paid off the liability that the customer’s hard earned money had generated. Make your profession joyful. Stay alert and avoid mishaps. Happy shopping!
