C & R were very professional and friendly when I first contacted them. They spent time over the phone talking about my needs and were able to draw up a plan. They worked around my schedule. On the day, they showed up right on time and involved me with the minor changes they need to make. They finished on time and left the house clean. I will be using these guys in the future.

Switchboard Fundamentals

What Is a Switchboard?

A switchboard is an important component of your electrical systems which safely distribute electricity throughout residential and commercial facilities. It provides electricity to loads or other sub-boards & will disseminate the electrical current into smaller load circuits, while providing circuit protection. It essentially provides a circuit breaker, Rcbos (safety switches) & or fuse’s for electrical circuits in an enclosure.

A switchboard structure consists of a switchboard frame & or enclosure, earthing system, bus bar, electrical wiring, overcurrent protective devices, fuse’s, metering, rcbo’s or RCD safety switches & circuit breakers. The switchboard enclosure houses all these components in one please to ensure the electricity can be isolated safely in one place if & when required.

Switchboards have a voltage & amperage rating that refers to the level of voltage & current that they can carry safely without being damaged. When choosing a switchboard, make sure you know the maximum continuous current required (maximum demands) and available fault current. These three are important in determining the design of your new switchboard.
