What to Look for in a Switchgear Retrofitting Service

Wednesday, March 28, 2018


With a product lifespan that can last decades, retrofitting of switchgear offers a cost-effective way to extend the lifespan of the existing switchgear while incorporating the latest technology into the system.

At IEM, we believe that the following three areas deserve careful consideration when evaluating a retrofit solution and partner. They are 1) the ability to evaluate existing equipment and system bus, 2) design upgrade capabilities, and 3) solution implementation approach.

Let's take a closer look at each...

 ♦ Evaluating existing equipment and system bus includes, but is not limited to, considerations around component condition, control scheme, existing site conditions, and your own unique requirements.

  Design upgrade should include system modernization, analog to digital, remote diagnostics, breaker design, and the ability to tie into building management systems.

  And finally, solution implementation is built around site prep, retrofit, limited downtime implementation first on logic, on-site project management expert technicians, and engineering support.
