Novocastrian Electrical has the ability to provide a value for money electrical construction service and solutions through our experienced workforce. Our capabilities include:
Novocastrian Electrical can provide solutions in regards to power factor correction.
The first step is to examine the clients current energy consumption over a period time by installing data loggers on the electrical supply.
The information captured by the data loggers can be provided to the client in a report form along with recommendations on how the client can improve or reduce energy consumption.
One very important aspect of improving quality of supply is the control of power factor. Low power factor means poor electrical efficiency. The lower the power factor, the higher the apparent power drawn from the distribution network. This means that the supply company must install larger generation capacity, larger size transmission lines and cables, transformers and other distribution system devices, which otherwise would not be necessary. This results in much higher capital expenditures and operating costs for the Electricity Supply Company, which in many cases is passed on to the consumer in the form of higher tariff rates. This is the main reason behind why the Electricity Supply Companies in modern economies demand reduction of the reactive load in their networks via improvement of the power factor.
Commercial buildings are required to have exit and emergency lights installed throughout the facility.
Novocastrian Electrical can provide:
- Supply/installation of new exit/emergency light systems to new or existing sites
- Testing and repairs as required under Australian Standards
- Systems with the capacity for access via a wireless network to enable testing and real time fault notification
An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is a device that allows your computer or similar type equipment to keep running for a short time when the primary power source is lost. It also provides protection from power surges. A UPS contains a battery that "kicks in" when the device senses a loss of power from the primary source.
The size or rating of the UPS unit is dependent on the overall load connected and the period of time the UPS will be expected to maintain power to the connected equipment.
Novocastrian Electrical can design a system, be it for a new or existing premises, to keep vital customer assets operational if power is lost.
A programmable logic controller (PLC) is a digital computer used for automation of typically industrial electromechanical processes, such as control of machinery on factory assembly lines or amusement rides. PLCs are also used to control lighting circuits and are useful when installed in reducing power consumption through better control over electrical equipment
Touch screens displays are installed to allow control of many types of electrical equipment. Installed in a central location at a facility the screen allows the end user to control:
- Air conditioning
- Exhaust systems.
Through our partnership with service providers Novocastrian Electrical has the capabilities to produce all electrical site drawings for construction projects in CAD format. This allows our clients the flexibility to make changes easier for distribution to all stakeholders.
With our association with major commercial light fitting manufacturers Novocastrian Electrical can provide a complete lighting design and installation of light fittings to suit the clients premises. Factors to be taken into account include:
- Overall size of commercial space
- Type of activity performed within the space
- Amount of natural light entering the space
- Building fabric
- Ceiling heights
Once all factors are considered a lighting lay out is produced to provide the required level of illumination at the working surfaces depending on the activity.
This approach can be applied to new and existing facilities
A typical commercial premises electrical infrastructure will be made up of various elements.
The majority of these elements will require regular maintenance:
- Exit and Emergency lights
- Residual Current Devices or safety switches
- Electrical connection checks
Novocastrian Electrical can tailor a maintenance schedule to suit the clients premises needs.
All equipment is maintained as outlined in the Australian Standards.
Novocastrian Electrical values the level of service we provide to our clients and the end users of a premises or facility while under construction and post build. With this in mind we work with all the major stakeholders to achieve the best end result in terms of the scope of works to be delivered on time and within budget.
Our construction team can offer up suggestions for alternative products or solutions to achieve the best result.
