Schnieder Electric refines electricity distribution for businesses
Schneider Electric has launched a 54-product distribution range for multi-occupancy buildings, catering for plug-in vehicles.
Schneider Electric says its solutions are ideal to cope with multi-occupancy buildings, such as apartments, hotels and retail outlets, which present a challenge with respect to allowing occupants to charge plug-in vehicles.
Schneider Electric’s Multiple Occupancy Distribution Equipment (MODE) range serves as a low-voltage indoor distribution point, safely transferring loads from the building’s supply to its various energy users.
MODE serves as an effective alternative to traditional cabling, eliminating the need for a standalone distribution board and cabling, as well as saving space, costs and installation time according to Schneider Electric.
For example, for larger power supplies, the solution can accommodate several shielded fuseways for outgoing distribution circuits, providing safer distribution and access for engineers than uncovered fuseways.
All units are constructed from raw materials in Schneider Electric’s manufacturing base in Scarborough, UK, and the lack of outside-sourced components passes significant savings onto the customer, the company says.
Seth Townsley, marketing manager at Schneider Electric, “Schneider Electric has been the premier supplier of MODE solutions for distribution network operators for 15 years. We’re confident that we’ll deliver the same experience, expertise and innovation in our solutions for building operators. We understand the challenges of supply distribution in our increasingly complex buildings and facilities, and we’ve tailored MODE expressly to answer them.
“By keeping our manufacturing, design and engineering in-house, we’ve crafted a market-leading solution that improves efficiency and safety while cutting costs for our customers.”
