How can high performance, continuity of service, safety and conformity be ensured for an electrical switchboard over the long term?

Answer: by being fully compliant with the provisions of the new IEC 61439-1&2 standard for low-voltage equipment.

Ever since the construction of its first electrical switchboard, Schneider Electric has never ceased its commitment to Assembly Manufacturers to guarantee “fully compliant" systems, and so much more.

Schneider Electric has always considered that the conformity of its solutions with IEC standards was a minimum, a springboard allowing it to go further still in its offer to users.

By developing low-voltage switchboard system offers that are pre-designed, pre-tested* and in full compliance with the requirements of this standard, Schneider Electric provides installers an assurance that the equipment they are implementing will be always perfect.

All low-voltage switchboard system components, (cubicles, cabinets, switchgear and connection systems), come with precise assembly instructions. Respecting them and doing the necessary routine verifications provide the panel builder assurance that his switchboard will be fully compliant with the IEC 61439-1&2 Standard.

What peace of mind!

In addition to providing standardized systems as original equipment, Schneider Electric also offers its customers benefits directly related to the system’s design:

- guarantee of voltage stress withstand capability;

- guarantee of short-circuit withstand capability;

- resistance to temperature rise;

- protection against electric shock,

- outstanding switchboard operating ease and capacity;

- excellent ease of maintenance and scalability.

More than ever, the upgrading of electrical equipment to a standardized design is a guarantee of installation safety and performance.

Schneider Electric offers robust and reliable systems, engineered to enable the installation of electrical switchboards that meet IEC standards. The company has resolutely decided to commit itself to this proactive approach, for ever more safe and reliable energy.
