Ancillary Electrical Switchgear Integration

LEC offers customers the aggregation of ancillary distribution and controls for your power system into the switchgear.

To do this, your power system requires the following:

  1. Battery charger
  2. Jacket water heater circuit with disconnect when engine is running
  3. Radiator fan motor starters
  4. Generator set ventilation motor starters
  5. House power lighting and convenience receptacle circuits
  6. Step-down transformer for feeding house loads

There are big advantages to including all this within the switchgear:

  1. The switchgear is a single enclosure for all generator set electrical needs. This greatly simplifies installation in the field (fewer conduit runs)!
  2. The power system suddenly becomes very well integrated rather than multiple boxes serving separate functions that don’t play nice together.
  3. You don’t have double check the work of multiple electrical vendors, it’s already done for you!
  4. In some cases, it makes sense to integrate some or all these functions into the HMI. Now you can control and monitor these ancillaries remotely!
