A few more days to go and the extended weekend is soon to come. Long, consecutive, non-working days are the best times to upgrade companies’ electrical components since operations stop during these days. It’s a good time to develop large machineries , improve electrical systems and repair nearly broken equipment just like when a family does their monthly general cleaning of the house.

Here are five tools that can enhance Home and Industries’ electrical systems:

1. Molded Case Circuit Breakers (MCCB) DSC02735DSC02737

With its high capacity, enhance every electrical system in your office drastically. It can handle certain current jumps and current overload from 30 up to 1,200 Amperes (A) since some offices may use small machines like printers, scanners, photocopiers, shredders, coolers, fax machines, etc. that low capacity breakers cannot take on. AS you can see, these aren’t normal circuit breakers which are usually seen in homes. MCCBs are devices that protect larger circuit structures. Some still use it in their homes for their bigger loads or appliances.

2. AIR CIRCUIT BREAKERS (ACB) air-circuit-breakers-19851-5167997

Intensify the controls of such heavy-duty industrial machines with this high-rated breaking capacity circuit breaker. ACB operates by air with a specific atmospheric pressure from tremendous overload. This ACB stops faulty current flow that may cause severe damage to a whole system and to huge machines like generators and motors used by power plants, chemical, steel and automobile industries, telecommunications and others. This breaker has larger interrupting capacity than MCCBs.

ACBs can handle ratings from 630 to 6,300 Ampere frame. In layman’s term, multiply your home circuit breakers by more than 1,000 times and that’s the capacity of an ACB.


Upgrade motor-operated technologies such as irrigation pumping mechanisms, pulp and paper machines, textile equipment and others with your VFD. Control their speed at an extremely accurate electrical motor regulation, so that motor speeds can be controlled up and down, and maintained, at speeds required.

In this way, only the energy required is used, rather than having a motor run at constant speed that consumes an excess of energy. In other words, your Return on Investment (ROI) will be compensated very quickly, VAT included! The efficiency of VFDs will generally save up to 30% of electricity consumption.


If an electrical motor is doing more work than that for which was designed, it is considered to be overloaded and eventually can cause fire.

Maximize protection of motors and generators from overheat.

Magnetic Contactors and Thermal Overload Relays cut off circuit power whenever there’s a phase failure. It simply means, it protects your air conditioners, computers, generators, and other appliances from wreckage or burns when it is used altogether at the same time. It is better to have this kind of protection device maintained for safety at home and before resuming the work.

5. TIMERS DSC03026TC-V002-187x300final-TC-V003-204x300

Develop an organized usage of all the tools and apparatuses with an effective timer. With this, every machine, big and small, can be used properly and efficiently.

Long time use of appliances like air conditioners, generators and motor technologies will be controlled. Just simply set the preferred time (and day) of power, and the operation of the whole industry can be better predicted with less consumption of energy.

Using Timers for appliances at home is a great benefit. Not only does it help you control its time of use but also it protects its life by the automatic turn-off feature when the usage of the appliance is already done.

Maximize the downtime this summer in your companies and at home by upgrading systems and machineries through these devices, to give you a safe home to stay and a fine workplace to get the job well done.

Choose the best electrical controls and protecting devices to enhance a safe and economical household living. Improving the industries’ big and small operations in preparing the way towards progress, can be achievable.
