9 metres of brand new main low voltage switchboard was fitted with the new Compact NSX circuit breakers at the Bourse Commercial Centre in Marseille which has completely refurbished its electrical installation.
Objective: ensure maximum protection whist measuring, monitoring and transmitting energy consumption.
The Barbanel design office and Socoteel installation contractor recommended using Compact NSX circuit breakers fitted with Micrologic type E trip units - a solution perfectly adapted to the new needs of the user.
Detect opportunities for cutting costs
The Commercial Centre wanted to control its energy costs.
“It should be possible to avoid or reduce certain areas of energy consumption, such as lighting for example, at certain times of the day, or for certain machines by programming them to shutdown earlier. Information provided by the measurement units which are integrated into the Compact NSX should give us a better understanding of how our installations function and allow us to create solutions to optimise them, thus reducing our electrical energy consumption”, explains Guy Gibert, director of the Commercial Centre.
Facilitate maintenance work
Aurélien Maingault, the Panel builder, appreciated the ease of installation and ease of use when replacing the obsolete installation with 9 metres of Prisma Plus panels. The work needed to be carried out over a weekend, with the obligation of completing the work by the time the Commercial Centre opened on Monday morning. “A challenge in part made possible by the technology of the Compact NSX. With there no longer being the need to wire core balance CTs and with the new Plug and Play connection for remote front face displays, Compact NSX gave us a massive time saving, helping us to install the switchboard in record time and meet the deadline.”
< Back to all Success Stories
“Schneider Electric is a real step ahead, with the Compact NSX which guarantees protection and provides the user with all the data he needs
about his installation.”
