Meiji Electric- the leading electrical supplier in the Philippines, have always taken pride in introducing innovative items to the market. They were the first company to aggressively offer the Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI), Marine Vapor Lamps, Contactor Transfer Switches (CTS), Key Card Control System and Home Panel Boards (MHP) in the Philippines. With company’s continuous endeavor to occupy significant items in the Electrical Controls market, Meiji Electric is proud to introduce the “Meiji White Panel Board”.

 

Meiji White Panel

 

The Meiji White Panel is a combination of Metal Panel Box and the Meiji Home Panel Plastic Cover. This was made as a response to the increasing needs of consultants and contractors who needs a bigger Ampere capacity for their main circuit breakers. Doesn’t ring a bell? Let me explain it to you:

What is a Panel Board?

The National Electrical Code® (NEC®) defines a panel board as a single panel or group of panel units designed for assembly in the form of a single panel, including buses and automatic over-current devices, and equipped with or without switches for the control of light, heat, or power circuits; designed to be placed in a cabinet or cutout box placed in or against a wall, partition, or other support; and accessible only from the front.

In summary, according to the NEC® definition, panel boards are:

  • Used to control light, heat, or power circuits
  • Placed in a cabinet or cutout box
  • Mounted in or against a wall
  • Accessible only from the front

Panel Boards are used in residential, commercial buildings and industrial facilities to safely control the distribution of electrical power throughout the facility. Most of us are familiar with the panel board found in a regular home. Power, purchased from a utility company like Meralco, enters the house through a metering device or what we normally call kilowatt hour meter. The power is then distributed from a load center to various branch circuits for lighting, appliances, and electrical outlets.

 

Now that you know what a panel board is, you are probably wondering what’s so special about the Meiji White Panel board? Hint: It is not just about the color.

The Meiji White Panel Board is a customized panel that is a hybrid of metal panel board and the Meiji Home Panel.

 

What is a Meiji Home Panel?

The Meiji Home Panel are modular distribution boxes applicable to electric circuit terminals rated at 220V Line to Line or 400V Line to Neutral. It is beautifully designed for simple installation and disassembly. It is widely used in household, tall buildings, townhouse residences, condominiums, etc. The plastic components of MHP modular panel box adapts to fire resistant ABS, which is impact resistant. It has convenient din rail and height adjustment features, as well as provisions for neutral and grounding.

Due to the compact design of the Meiji Home Panel, it can only accommodate a miniature circuit breaker up to 125 Ampere rating. This is the common problem of contractors since bigger houses require main breakers with higher ampacity. They will have to buy an independent enclosure for the main breaker and place the branches in a separate Meiji Home Panel.

To solve this problem, Meiji Electric came up with the Meiji While Panel– a newly designed panel board that shares the same good qualities of the Meiji Home Panel but only better because it can now accommodate a Molded Case Circuit breaker of 225A and even higher.

With this advancement, you will no longer need a separate enclosure for your main circuit breaker. Some of you might be wondering, why not just get a standard panel board and get it over? The thing is, Meiji Home Panels and the White Panel Board are less expensive than the standard metal panel board. Add that they are very aesthetically appealing, therefore you don’t need to hide them in your kitchen cabinet. ‘Less expensive’ does not mean less quality, though, Meiji Electric has been in the marketing and fabrication of electrical control products for more than 30 years now, and with their vast number of customers, you can be assured of the quality and reliability of all their products. As a matter of fact, a leading construction and contracting company in the Philippines recently acquired a number of “Meiji White Panel” for the new townhouses that they are developing in New Manila, Quezon City. With this new partnership, expect to see more of the “Meiji White Panels” across the metro.

Like the Meiji Home Panel, the Meiji White Panel can also accommodate up to 40x2P branches. Match them with the PS Quality Certified Meiji Miniature Circuit Breakers for your utmost electrical protection. No competing product comes close in terms of features, ease of use and price.

It is best that we are equipped with the proper knowledge to avoid any future losses that we can actually avoid.

Home panels/distribution boxes or commonly known as the panel board is one of the most essential electrical requirements in a home.  It houses our circuit breakers which are responsible in the distribution and protection of power in different loads in our houses. It is very important for all of us to have at least the basic knowledge on how to use this device. Why? I’ll give you a scenario.

You’re all alone in your house, perhaps watching a television series and then suddenly you see a spark in the outlet. What will you do? Call for help? Yes, but it would take some time. Panic?  That is the worst you could do. And you’ll remember that you could turn off the circuit breaker, but how? Another question is where is it? And when you finally found it, you have no idea what’s the particular circuit breaker you need to turn off. Hassle, isn’t it?

Yes, you know what circuit breakers and home panels are for, but do you really know how to use it?

So now that we are aware of its importance. I’ll give you some tips to make most of your home panels.

MEIJI TIPSIt should be accessible

Say NO to hiding your home panel in the most unsearchable area inside your home like the kitchen cabinet or garage. Install it in an accessible place that will be easy to find especially in times of emergencies.

Label each circuit breaker

This is very important especially if you are using a multiple circuit breaker in your homes. You don’t want other to suffer because of the wrong circuit breaker you turned off, right?

Keep out of reach of children

Children are very curious with their surroundings. Of course, none of us wants our children to play with our home panels. This can be risky

Choose the right partner

Meaning, you need to make the right choice in choosing the best home panel for your homes.  Something that would really last.  Something that you could rely on. And this is what Meiji Home Panel is all about. User-friendly, convenient and worth –it. Meiji Home  Panels is definitely the good choice.
