Engineering

No matter the size of a project, when switchboards are involved there is almost always an engineering component required.

Here at FEL Switchboards, Electrical Engineering is a major part of our business. From Switchboard design to Automation and Process Control, right through to the final installation, having your project properly engineered is critical to its success.

Our design and installation experience provides our customers with peace of mind. We take pride in the work we do, ensuring we meet compliance with the Electrical Standards at all times.

Form ratings, heat rise and fault current calculations are all compiled and checked during our design and engineering process.

If you have any questions, please contact us.

 

Regulations

At FEL Switchboards, all works comply with the current AS/NZS 3000 Electrical Wiring Rules, with reference to section 2.9 – Electrical Switchboards.

We design and fabricate all of our Electrical Switchboards to the AS 3439 Standards – Low-voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies (Type-Tested and partially Type-Tested assemblies).

In addition to the AS/NZ Standards, we design, manufacture and comply with EN(IEC)61439-1/2. With reference to Type-tested Switchboards, switchgear and Form ratings.

Quality Assurance

At FEL Switchboards we are committed to quality production and service, providing a high standard of workmanship. Our switchboard projects finish on time, and on budget, as promised.

Quality is assured through a systematic approach to design, construction and testing of equipment. Continued upskilling of our switchboard team ensures that our team deliver the best possible product to our clients.

As memebrs of the New Zealand board builders association and with our ISO:9001 accreditation, we take pride in providing our clients with the best possible product.

We adhere to the following standards at all times during the design and fabrication of our Electrical Switchboards, PDC’s and Control Panels:

    • AS/NZS 3000:2007 (Section 2.9.3.1 Electrical Switchboards)
    • AS 3439.1:20
    • EN(IEC)61439-1/2

Software

Switchboards - CubicAs accredited Cubic Switchboard partners we use their Galaxy 3 software to design our Cubic switchboards. Using this no compromise switchboard design tool we can produce highly detailed drawings with access to heat rise calculations and fault characteristics. Through preliminary inspections during design we are able to do rapid modifications and variations to ensure compliance is maintained.

 

Switchboards - SchneiderAs Prisma partners we utilise the Rhapsody software. This software package provides extensive details on Prisma Switchboards but also switchgear, including: MCB’s, MCCB’s, ACB’s and their ancillary motor protection. Like with the Cubic software we are able to do rapid design alterations whilst also maintaining continuity amongst the Schneider gear.

 

Switchboards - AutocadThroughout FEL’s Engineering process, we use EPlan and AutoCAD, to structure the electrical wiring of the Project. This enables us to incorporate existing and proposed electricla systems into a design platform. Furthermore, we can either supply a standard cirucit labelling solution, or incorporate an existing system on site. The result is a smooth and seamless connection between old and new.
