Mains board reduces delivery times for panelbuilders
ABB is dramatically reducing the time it takes to specify and assemble mains distribution boards, with the launch of its Triline-R enclosure range. With availability to the complete ABB product range, Triline-R will reduce delivery times down to seven to 15 working days.
With most components pre-installed, the Triline-R enables panelbuilders to realistically deliver a mains board to their customer within just a few weeks after ordering it from ABB. Nick Reidy, product manager for enclosures at ABB, says: "We trialled the Triline-R in the UK last year, and were surprised by the level of demand we experienced. This high level of interest has led to us offering it to a much wider audience. We're really excited about this product, because it will change the whole process of configuring and delivering a mains distribution board to users."
Designed to reduce the process of configuring the board, ABB has also produced the Panel Design Configurator (PDC) software tool, to enable panelbuilders to configure a board themselves. Available free to panelbuilders from ABB, it includes a parts list, circuit diagrams and a graphical representation of the front view of the distribution board.
Using the software panelbuilders can now select and plan their board, and choose the parts required. Parts can be dragged and dropped onto the front view image to check compatibility. The software tool will confirm that the parts builders selected are suitable. They can then be placed onto an order form and sent to ABB. The PDC software also provides the flexibility to export data and parts lists to other Windows programs. It can also be used for project planning purposes, storing and managing data alongside build projects.
