Product Overview

Leman Engineering and Consulting’s custom saddlebag enclosures provide you the flexibility to feed multiple automatic transfer switches, a load bank, or other loads. We can offer molded case circuit breakers or power circuit breakers. Manually or electrically operated. Optional key interlocks. Need some clever ways to drive down cost? We’ve got you covered!

Saddlebag enclosures are sheetmetal circuit breaker enclosures, specially designed to mount onto the side of your generator set “doghouse” or termination box. LEC can provide these enclosures with molded case circuit breakers or power circuit breakers. Multiple circuit breakers can be installed into the saddlebag enclosure.

Customers take delivery of these saddlebag enclosures on a skid. From there, a generator tech installs the enclosure onto the generator doghouse. The saddlebag enclosure is provided with an inward-bent mounting flange around the perimeter of the enclosure – this provides a bolting surface to mount onto a generator.

Our Products and Services

LEC works as a niche business in the Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engine (RICE) power generation world, supplying a critical component of a larger electrical power system. LEC understands engine-driven generator sets and how to control them.

RICE power generation has great variety:

    • •   Different makes and sizes of engines running on different types of fuel
      •   Different kW ratings
      •   Different voltages
      •   Different applications: standby, prime power, utility parallel, single units, multiple units, etc.
      •   Different job sites which have site-specific requirements

  • LEC offers paralleling switchgear and controls – primarily for the power generation industry.  Primarily related to reciprocating internal combustion engines (RICE) driven generators.  Does this sound like a niche business?  It definitely is.  LEC has an in-depth understanding of paralleling these type machines:  with each other, with dissimilar machines, and against utility grids.  Against “infinite” busses and with “finite” busses.
