The Right Time to Replace a Switchboard

Ideally, a switchboard should be replaced after 30 years; however, signs that your electricity supply is being disrupted or poses a potential safety hazard will require an inspection of the distribution board.

An old switchboard cannot produce reliable operation. In many cases, the cables are no longer properly connected, and signs of overheating become apparent. When we perform a professional electrical inspection, we assess every component and determine whether the switchboard requires replacement. Any meter boxes that are connected to an asbestos board will need to be upgraded and the asbestos safely contained and removed.

Switchboards Must be Upgraded for Safety Purposes

It is not advisable to wait until your switchboard becomes problematic before replacing it. When meter boxes begin to breakdown, it could cause cabling to overheat, fuses to blow when power is exceeded, and increase the risk of fire hazards.

Older switchboards simply lack the safety mechanisms that the new technology offers. Outdated meters were not designed to detect faults and shut off the power when threats are detected. The installation of a brand new meter can provide exceptional protection for your home and business.

How the RCD Mechanism Can Save Lives

The modern switchboard for the Sydney residence or workplace includes a Residual Current Device or RCD. It also includes new circuit breakers assisting in the measurement of electricity and protection against burned or blown fuses, switches, and cables. The latest safety features also have the potential to save your life! It regulates the incoming and outgoing electricity and any irregularities will cause the power to shut down.

With the immense amount of current running through properties and utilized at once, it places a high energy demand on distribution. For safety purposes, ensure that your box can handle the demands placed on it with the install of the right switchboard.

The busbars will be used to connect the incoming power supply to the switches, and the terminal blocks will be used to connect the circuits to the switches. Make sure you use a wiring diagram to help you connect everything properly.
