Reliability, crafted by expert eyes.

Are You Getting The Most Out Of Your Electrical Switchboard Layout?

You would be surprised by the number of companies who still rely on out-dated switchboards to manage the electrical demands of their operation. We are often approached by new customers who complain about a system they had installed by another service provider that only lasted a few years with the growth of their demands.

This indicates how important it is to get the job done right the first time so you don’t have to worry about your entire operation falling victim to widespread interruptions to your services.

The switchboard is the quietly beating heart of most industrial and commercial businesses, and like a heart, it needs to be connected and wired in the most efficient way possible in order to get the best results.

Tell Tale Signs Your System May Be Inefficient

It can be tough to determine how well your switchboard is running by opening it up unless you know precisely what you are looking for. However, there are some signs that can indicate an issue is present such as:

  • Advanced age
  • Audible electrical humming
  • Circuit breaker trips
  • Power surges
  • Hot spots
  • Exposed live busbars

We can help you with switchboard servicing and making sure everything is and will continue to run smoothly.

We Work With The Biggest International Companies

Dara Switchboards boasts some of the most prestigious high performing clients and we are delighted to continue serving their energy management needs. Our clients include the likes of:

BP – One of the world’s leading international oil and gas companies, providing customers with fuel for transportation, energy for heat and light, lubricants to keep engines moving, and the petrochemical products used to make everyday items as diverse as paints, clothes and packaging.

The main switchboard for BP Port Hedland terminal was designed and manufactured by Dara Switchboards as part of an electrical upgrade. Due to the extreme weather conditions in the area, the switchboard is designed to operate in harsh environments. Protective sun shields on all sides of the board allow the switchboard to perform in cool conditions.

Tesla – Considered the leading electric car manufacturer on the global market Tesla established a supercharger network on the east coast to provide power for electric cars travelling from Brisbane to Adelaide. Construction is underway for six new locations in northern NSW that will extend the fast-charging range of Tesla’s Model S and Model X north to Brisbane and bridge the gap between Melbourne and Adelaide.

Tesla superchargers are capable of delivering up to two-hundred and seventy kilometres of range to the Model S in just 30 minutes. Dara Switchboards is the proud manufacturer of main switchboards and switchboard enclosures for some of the supercharger stations along the east coast.

If Your Power Distribution Isn’t Efficient You Need To Make The Switch

If your distribution network isn’t running optimally or if you suffer power interruptions every now and again then it may be the case that your power distribution and protection system is not designed and manufactured as per the installation requirements. If this is the case then calling Dara Switchboards is the best thing you can do.

We can take a look at how your board is configured and best advise on how to remedy the problem.

Likewise, if you need to install a new board then make sure you call on us, we can supply you with the perfect distribution and protection system and ensure that your electrical switchboard layout is in line with the site requirements now and to the future.
