Service Entrance (SE) rated designs are suitable for low voltage (200-400A), single or three phase power applications that are common for business facilities and homes. Whether for new construction or retrofits, choices for electrical distribution cabinets include options with automatic or manual transfer switches; with two- or three-source power options; with surge protection; and panel boards with up to 42 branch breaker positions.
Intersect panel designs integrate components to provide more functionality in compact sizes. Traditionally, electricians installed main disconnect breakers in one box, a transfer switch in a second box, and a panel board in a third—with optional surge protection demanding a fourth box. With Intersect solutions, one box includes these elements factory-wired. Electricians install one cabinet, indoors or outdoors, for hook-up to site power. Unattractive rows of mismatched boxes are eliminated. Less space is required. Expense is decreased even while the single cabinet provides more flexibility and functionality for site power. If the utility grid is "off", a manual or transfer switch to an alternative power source enables commercial activities and residential electronics to remain "on". Lights are on and cash registers, computers, and TV monitors operate while digital gages are lit.
Power Transfer Load Centers (PTLC) offer maximum integration of components for new construction—SE indoor and outdoor cabinets that include main disconnect breakers, surge protection, an automatic and/or manual transfer switch, remote monitoring and alarming, and panel boards for 30 or 42 branch breakers. Electrical design engineers may select a PTLC for main or subpanel installation.
Power Transfer Centers (PTC) are ideal for use when an engine generator set (permanent or mobile) is an add-on to a business or home electrical system. PTC’s include main disconnect breakers, optional surge protection, and an automatic or manual transfer switch. These designs do not include panel boards as they are designed for installation in front of or side-by-side with pre-existing distribution centers that already are populated with branch breakers wired to electrical equipment, lights and appliances.
ICGC or ICL
CamLok Generator Connection Panels (ICGC or ICL) are pad-lockable cabinets that offer a universal means of connecting engine sets. Plugs and receptacles dominated low voltage engine generator set connections until engine generator set rentals revealed that the gen set plug oftentimes did not match the receptacle on user premises rendering the alternative power source unusable. CamLoks eliminate plugs and receptacles. CamLoks are color coded for safe and easy installation, and they twist lock to provide optimal mechanical and electrical connections. Quick and easy connections make it possible to store an engine generator set in a garage or shed, then to pull it out for use in a power outage.
ICGC or ICL
Site Surge Protection (SPD) with Strikesorb is the protection device recommended by Intersect. Strikesorb has unique protection capabilities and never leaves your electronics unprotected. Long duration surges may be the result of faulty equipment on the grid or even mis-wiring on site. Strikesorbs will survive most power surges; however, when the surge duration could cause damage or destruction of your critical electronics, Strikesorb is designed to take your equipment off-line. In this rare event, you replace the Strikesorb and not your electronics. Strikesorb is owned by Raycap International, and its ability to protect against power anomalies—including spikes or surges from lightning and grid outages—is unique.
