Solar-PV energy providers no longer need complex solutions to match 800/1000 VAC array outputs to lower-voltage storage systems. Panel builders can support their shift to much simpler, more efficient, more reliable 800/1000 VAC storage.
Surge protection devices are evolving from being “accessories” toward “necessities.” Learn why more OEMs and panel builders are making the smart move to include these devices in their designs.
Most panel components are sourced based on electrical or functional specs, and then cost. But there are other factors to consider. Learn about three surprising benefits panel builders can realize by making smart component selections for food and beverage facilities.
Facility managers with backup-power systems are like skydivers; they can’t know if the backup actually works until they need it. Using smart devices in power-control-system panels greatly increases backup-power system reliability.
The automatic transfer switch has moved from a relatively mundane role in power distribution and control systems to being a major player. Read about three traits to consider to ensure you select the right ATS for your application.

Actions to solve one problem often have other, unexpected consequences. Panel builders opt for digital components primarily to create more-compact panels. But they also discover other unexpected additional benefits of interest to both panel builders and buyers. Here are 3 unexpected benefits of more-compact panels.

Many process and production plants, as well as power-critical facilities like data centers, have at least a basic system to warn them of power problems. A new cloud-based power monitoring solution can provide much more information and deliver measurable benefits. Panel builders or system integrators can build in this solution and build stronger customer relationships and new revenue streams in the process.
