do not confuse System 50 switchboards with off the shelf 'meccano like' frame systems
System 50 is a high quality and flexible switchgear framework, developed and designed by Charnvel and manufactured by our partners. The flexibility of the System 50 design means we can easily provide a complete factory built assembly to your contract requirements; anything from single column units to large complex suites of switchgear can be supplied to most IP ratings.
Our versatile and well proven System 50 range of cubicle switchboards are constructed to BS EN60439 (BS 5486) and are available in all classes of forms of separation.
Do not confuse System 50 with proprietary 'off the shelf' cabinet systems which are often subject to many design constraints. A System 50 board can fit your requirements exactly.
The system provides good solutions for the housing of ACB’s, MCCB’s, Switch Fuses, MCB’s and fuse ways in any combination to provide a switchboard tailored to your particular requirements and the modular nature means that installing System 50 into switchrooms is never complicated process. Take a look at some commonly used System 50 section configurations.
Large switchboards can be easily split into easily manageable sections, individually moved into position and then re-suited and site tested, usually within one day. A product of the sturdy design, allows switchboard sections to be laid on their side, which is an important consideration when moving the board into the switchroom; rarely do door apertures have to be modified or additional civil works need to be carried out to install a System 50 switchboard.
Here you see a view of our cable box system. The individual removable gland plates are visible on the floor of the section, leading to a generous vertical cable tray. As shown in the photographs below, each device is housed in an individual Form 4 type 2 enclosure with an easily removable glanding plate and ample cable tray; cabling a System 50 board is a simple and speedy process.
