Synergy Switchboards by Spike Electric

Spike Electric's Electrical Switchboard

Synergy Switchboards – UL891-Compliant, High-Quality Engineering Products

We, at Spike Electric Controls, introduce our Synergy Switchboard range, which is an engineering marvel. We aim to bring you power products that are engineered for safety, reliability, and quality. We are committed to providing our clients with innovative solutions and meeting complex technical requirements with ease.

Our Synergy Switchboard range is compliant with the specifications of the UL891 quality control standard, which is one of the most common and most widely trusted standards for switchboards. The UL standards are essentially a set of safety regulations that have been certified by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) in the U.S. These standards have been approved by the U.S. federal government for the safety of workers.

The specifications of the UL891 quality control standard apply to the switchboards rated for 600V or less in accordance with the National Electric Code (NEC) and ANSI/NFPA 70. This standard also covers the switchboards which are used in circuits with available short circuit currents up to 2,000A or less.

Our Synergy switchboards are tested after being subject to a 2,000A fault current. This certifies that our product can survive the extreme physical stress of such an event. This gives you an assurance that our Synergy Switchboard range will hold up even in the most extreme circumstances.

The UL standards for switchboards focus on all aspects of safety w.r.t the switchboard systems. As per the requirements of the UL certification, our Synergy Switchboard range is periodically sampled and tested to ensure compliance. So, there is a constant testing and thus, our task does not end with getting certified once only.

The badge of the UL certification conveys trust between the manufacturers, governing bodies, and consumers.

Our Synergy Switchboard range is compliant with the specifications of the UL891 quality control standard, which is one of the most common and most widely trusted standards for switchboards.

Stainless Steel Switchboards & Stainless Steel Nema 4x Switchboards

Out Door Stainless steel switchboards are common in highly corrosive environments that a painted steel enclosure may corrode over time. The longevity of the switch board is significantly increased when utilizing a stainless-steel switch board in those types of environments.

When ordering a Nema 4x Switchboard there is allot of room for error due to some companies not understanding the heat loss calculations that need to be done on a Nema 4X Rated switch board. Nema 4x Switch Board should be rated for windblown dust and rain, splashing water, and hose directed water; undamaged by ice which forms on the enclosure.  Circuit Breakers, switches, transfer switches and other devices generate allot of heat. The heat needs to escape through a Nema 4x ventilated or AC cooled system or the enclosure needs to be sized properly in order to withstand the internal heat.

Nema 4x Switchboards can have issues like nuisance tripping of circuit breakers, over heating of components, which in turn defeats the purpose of the 4x enclosure of increasing the longevity of the internal electrical components. Let Spike Electric Design and build your custom Nema 4x switch board. Our team of electrical engineers will ensure the heat calculations are done properly and working with their counterpart mechanical engineers will design the enclosure to fit the custom application.
