Switchboard Upgrades and Installations
Russo Electrical Pty. Ltd. provide switchboard installations and upgrades for both commercial and residential properties.
Commercial switchboard installations
Large commercial workshops, factories, office buildings and retail outlets require specialised and complex switchboards, many with three phase power to deal with their large power demands. They can also need:
- Separate meters for specific circuits
- Main and bypass circuit breakers
- Surge protection and emergency power off switches
- Phase failure monitoring
- RCD testing and tagging
- Fault finding
Commercial switchboard upgrades (fuse box repairs and fuse box upgrades)
If you have an older switchboard or are upgrading your machinery or expanding your business, then you might need a switchboard upgrade to cope with the added electrical demands. The last thing you want is an electrical fire, an electrocution or a power failure because your existing switchboard cannot cope with the additional demands of your business.
Russo Electrical Pty. Ltd. make sure your commercial switchboard is safe:
- Compliant with the Australian Industry Standards
- Fitted with RCDs and individual circuit breakers
- New RCBOs combine both RCD’s and circuit breakers into one unit, ideal for switchboards in tight spots
Residential switchboard installations
Switchboards and fuse boxes protect your home from dangerous electrical surges. This in turn protects your family and loved ones against electrical shocks and fires that can result in death or injury.
All new homes in Australia must be fitted with an electrical switchboard that contains safety switches or residential current devices (RCDs). These are hard wired into your switchboard along with a circuit breaker which supplies an additional level of safety.
RCD’s protect against fires and electrocution caused by electrical faults or imbalances, by cutting off the power as soon as a problem is detected and by minimising potential injuries or property damage.
The purpose of the circuit breaker is to protect your home’s wiring, it will not protect you if you touch a live wire (a RCD will protect you in these circumstances). Electrical surges cause a circuit breaker to trip and need to be reset before power can be returned to that appliance or location in your home.
Residential switchboard upgrades (fuse box repairs and fuse box upgrades)
Older homes really need their fuse boxes upgraded to the newer switchboards, so instead of asking for a fuse box repair – make sure you ask for a fuse box upgrade.
This is because older fuse boxes do not have RCDs or circuit breakers fitted and they were not designed to deal with the electrical power demands of today’s technological advances. Just compare the appliances - fridges, freezers, TVs, computers, laptops, games consoles and air-conditioning that we have in our homes now to what we had twenty or thirty years ago.
You can understand why your old fuse box might well need an upgrade to cope with all the power we use today. Frequent power trips or flickering lights are one indication that you need a switchboard upgrade.
