One such area includes upgrading control system starter and motor control panels to ensure they are meeting PUWER (Provision of Work Equipment Regulations, 1998). At Kigtek our experienced electrical team assemble panels, from start to finish, in our own workshop. Working closely with our control system engineers and electrical design team, we produce high quality, fully tested panels ready for site installation. We recently responded to a customer request to supply and install replacement panels for their current MCC starter panels. The new panels were built to conform with PUWER safety standards.
At a high level, these regulations require an organisation to ensure that equipment is:
Suitable for its purpose
Maintained to be safe
Not risk health and safety
Inspected by a competent worker with results recorded.
The panels incorporated:
Siemens overloads and contactors
PULS power supply units
PILZ safety relays and finder relays
Kigtek also have the capability to build panels to other standards and regulations such as:
Zoning requirements (e.g. ATEX)
BS EN 61439-2:2009/IEC61439-1/2 (Low-Voltage Switchgear and Controlgear Assemblies)
BS EN 60204-1/ IEC60204-1 (Electrical Equipment of Machines)
BS 7671 (IET Wiring Regulations)
BS EN 60079-14:2003 (Electrical Installation in Hazardous Areas)
