With the introduction of renewable energy into the main stream market and the drive for higher data performance of systems, companies are looking to exploit the enabling possibilities of DC power. These developments in technology and increased DC power usage require dedicated DC protection equipment.
CBI-electric has, for a number of years, developed products that contribute substantially towards the efficient use of electrical energy. Products such as energy management devices and automatic load shedding devices, now have renewed significance as they have been developed to enable end-users of electricity to themselves manage their own power usage. Automatic load shedding maintains consumption below maximum demand, thereby saving penalty charges.
