Capabilities

Power Factor Correction Units

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.

Industrial Lighting

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.

Capabilities

UPS - Uninterrupted Power Supply

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.

Capabilities

Programmable Logic Control and Touch Screen Displays

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:

  • Lights
  • Air conditioning
  • Exhaust systems

Many thanks for so promptly sorting the new aircon units in the member’s – they were a god-send on Saturday when we were touching 41 degrees.

I not long looked at the works at Gloucester Public School as part of the invoicing process.

Just wanted to pass on the appreciation of neat and thorough work that is visible with the photos on MyFlo.

You can obviously see care and effort within the works and it shows with the only things I have made comment on are the linking of the Decals within the boards on Myflo, and a few little photo updates on the Cons Mains Report.

Can you please pass on my gratitude to the guys who carried out the works.
