KEB IsoSafe™ Distribution Board

This alternative PDU design enables individual circuits to be safely isolated from the main system in accordance with the latest wiring rules, without affecting other circuits governing functions, it is widely used across Australia.

This avoids having to close down an entire switchboard, involving scores of circuits, when only one circuit needs to be worked on, to add, inspect, change or replace equipment.

The technology is particularly important to applications where minimising downtime is vital, including banks, data centres, hospitals, telecommunication companies, manufacturing plants and anywhere continuation of supply is vital.

Safety and flexibility is provided by using a Schneider Electric Isobar chassis that enables maintenance staff to disconnect and reconnect particular functions without disrupting the entire network. A disconnectable neutral terminal also allows operators to isolate the active and neutral when working on individual circuits.

The switchboard is available in 12 to 72 pole sizes and can be fitted with Schneider Electric RCD's. It includes an Isobar chassis, a main circuit-breaker or isolator, circuit-breaker terminal covers, numbered neutral and earth connections located directly opposite each circuit-breaker and a cable management system that allows open access to cables while retaining them in tidy groups. Key features include:

  • Disconnectable neutral terminal, which allows the operator to isolate the active and neutral when working on an individual circuit.
  • 12-72 poles. Can be fitted with RCD circuit breakers
  • Unique cable management system. Allows complete open access to cables while retaining them in a neat and tidy group
  • Isobar chassis; Main circuit breaker or isolator; Circuit breaker terminal covers; Numbered neutral and earth connections located directly opposite each circuit breaker.

KEB PowerSafe™ Distribution Board

This industry first PDU was designed with our focus on reducing downtime in the safest way possible for Critical Power applications such as Data Centres, financial institutions and Telecoms.

This PDU allows licensed electricians to change out individual circuits without shutting down the switchboard. KEB PowersafeTM Distribution Units are extensively used across several industry sectors. Key features include:

  • Replace or add circuit breakers without having to take your Distribution Board offline
  • Convert single pole to three pole and vice versa
  • Maintain productivity while changing or adding circuits
  • All circuits fully insulated so work can be done safely (in accordance with Regulations and Regulatory Best Practices)
