New video highlights speed of Eaton panelboards
Published: 13 April 2012 - Joe Bush
Following the launch of its new Memshield 3 MCCB panelboards, Eaton has created a video which demonstrates how the plug and play metering facilities in the new panelboards makes installation up to nine times faster than before.
Entitled ‘It’s All About Time’, the video shows two electricians side by side racing against the clock to install panelboard metering in an old style panelboard and the new Memshield 3 panelboard. The video reveals how the plug-in connections in the new panelboard mean the metering is easily wired in less than ten minutes, whereas the traditionally wired version takes over an hour. The video can be viewed on Eaton’s YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/user/EatonElectricalEMEA).
Eaton’s Memshield 3 MCCB panelboards offer easy to fit plug and play metering facilities, as well as provision for incorporating surge and lightning protection, the ability to accommodate four-pole incoming devices with optional earth leakage protection, and enhanced mechanical construction.
Instead of having to make up to 42 individual connections to wire an energy meter - a task that typically takes around 90 minutes and is error prone because of the large number of connections, users of the new panelboards only need make a few simple plug-in connections. The risk of errors is eliminated, and a meter is easily wired in less than ten minutes and up to nine times faster.
