Panelboards are easy to install and help meet Part L2 of the Building Regulations
Hager’s latest range of Invicta 3 panelboards will help contractors meet the needs of Part L2 of the Building Regulations. Steve Dyson, a product manager with the company, explains, ‘Modern electrical distribution systems have more RCD protection, more metering and more control devices. Panelboards have to offer a flexible solution to help meet these needs.’
The new range includes 250, 400 and 800 A panelboards with new MCCB incomers. Prewired meter packs enable installers to fit metering into the board for both the incoming and outgoing ways. All internal wiring is included.
To help make installation fast and simple, there is generous space for bending cables at the top, bottom and sides of the board. Twin and earth neutral bars provide easy identification of earth and neutral conductors with the corresponding phase conductors.
The pan assemblies, door and front cover can be removed to reduce weight when fixing to the wall. Keyhole slots and a central fifth keyhole make fitting and levelling the board simpler. In addition, the top and bottom gland plates can be removed so the installer can prepare cable entries away from the board, helping prevent the ingress of swarf and dust.
The glazed door is aesthetic and enables an ordinary person, as defined by the 17th Edition of the Wiring Regulations, to view the board while it is locked.
