    Frequently asked questions about Logstrup switchgear

    In the following section you will find information about low voltage, medium voltage and high voltage switchgear components and supply of components.

    What is switchgear and what parts does it consist of?

    Switchgear covers a wide range of components within a power system, such as switches, circuit breakers, fuses, isolators, transformers, disconnectors and control centres. The use of switchgear makes it possible for companies and domestic establishments to switch on and off the power. Switchgear also protects the power system and ensures a reliable and safe power supply. Most power distribution switchgear is located in both the high voltage and low voltage side of a power transformer that helps de-energizing the power and clearing the fault. Switchgear by Logstrup is a safe option and easy to install. Low voltage switchgear which is what Logstrup produces is often located inside a building, vessels, oil rigs or in containers to supply mines. There are many types of applied uses of the switchgear components. Please feel free to contact us at Logstrup if you need consultation regarding electrical distribution components.

    Does a switchboard and switchgear have anything in common?

    Switchgear and switchboards are used for distribution power safely within a company or for domestic electrical infrastructure. A closer look into each type of equipment such as their testing standards, specifications and physical design reveals that these are two different pieces of equipment that each serve different purposes within electrical infrastructure.

    Switchgear often has more components such as circuit breakers, fuses and transformers. A Switchboard has the components mounted in the back front end or both. These components could be busses, switches, protective and electrical controls. 

    In most cases, switchgear is more expensive than electrical switchboards due to the complexity of the setup and materials that are used for switchgear. At the same time it is also important to note that individually mounted switchboards may be less cost-effective than switchboards that are group mounted. Please contact Logstrup for more information about switchboards and switchgear.

    What is a switchgear cabinet manufacturer?

    A switchgear cabinet manufacturer is a company that produces switchgear cabinets. A switchgear cabinet consists of the doors and interior components that make up the cabinet and its functions.

    Switchgear does in general cover a wide range of components within a power system. These components are switches, circuit breakers, fuses, isolators, transformers, disconnectors as well as control centres.

    To make it an even safer solution the switchgear is enclosed in special manufactured cabinets. These cabinets are designed as panels that give the user a great overview of the electrical distribution. Through the overview it becomes easier to troubleshoot any electrical inconsistencies that may occur. The troubleshooting features such as error messages through the many lights on the panel makes it possible to get back on the right track faster.

    What is low voltage switchgear?

    Low voltage switchgear is defined by switchgear that supplies up to 120 volts and current up to 6.000 amps. LV electrical switchgear consists of a centralized establishment of circuit breakers, fuses and circuit protection devices (also known as switches). With all of this in place the function is to serve as protection, control and isolation of the electrical distribution equipment.

    What is lv (low voltage) and mv (medium voltage) switchgear?

    LV (low voltage) – LV stands for low voltage and therefore is defined by switchgear which supplies up to 120 volts and current up to 6000 amps. Low voltage switchgear components by logstrup are highly modular which enables use across different brands. The customizable solutions make it possible to exchange old distribution switchgear with newer and more reliable equipment.

    At some point there is a need for more reliable components of high quality in existing setups. This is when people turn to Logstrup for their electrical needs of high quality switchgear.

    Frequently asked questions about Logstrup busbars

    In the following section you will find information about busbars.

    What is a busbar?

    A busbar used for the distribution of electricity refers to the copper bar that leads the electrical current through a switchboard. Busbars are therefore essential components in the distribution of electrical current. If you need an electrical busbar or any other components for a larger scale setup please contact Logstrup and we will guide you through our solutions.

    What is the function of a busbar in an electrical setup?

    A busbar is an electrical power distributor in an electrical switchboard. A busbar is most commonly a metallic strip or bar. Busbars are often used in local high current power distribution setups. If you are in need of any help with power distribution components then we are here to help. Please contact Logstrup regarding any questions you may have about electrical distribution components.

    What is a copper busbar? 

    The busbar is produced in a variety of shapes and materials. The busbar can be a flat strip, solid bars and rods and is typically composed from copper, brass or aluminium. If you need help to determine the best materials for your use, please contact Logstrup. We will help you in determining the most optimal solution for your electrical needs.

    What is a busbar system? 

    We always recommend a busbar when distributing electrical power using a switchboard. The busbar can be rods, flat strip or a solid bar. There are many possibilities and the requirements are easily met through a dialogue with our technicians.

    The high quality busbar distributes the electrical power in the switchboard. The material composition and sectional size of the busbar determines the maximal electrical current that the busbar is able to carry.

    What is a busbar connection?

    A busbar consists of additional parts. By combining additional safety parts to the busbar we can ensure safe distribution of electrical power. For the electrical power to move from one part to another part we need to use a busbar connection. To summarize the busbar connection is where one part of the busbar is connected to another relevant part. 

    What is a busbar trunking?

    A reliable busbar trunking system is distributing the electrical power using the busbar with suitable enclosures and protection to prevent damage to the cabels. Logstrup produces reliable busbar trunking systems and helps customers get the most out of their electrical solutions.

    Do busbar systems vary in quality?

    When producing the busbar there are a lot of technical guidelines to ensure the strength of the busbar. Logstrup produces busbars of high quality and makes sure the busbar is bent and shaped with high degrees to avoid weakening.

    What is a LV busbar and are there HV busbars?

    LV – Low voltage solutions are considered to be used by domestic, light industrial and commercial consumers. 

    HV – High voltage is considered to be any kind of voltage that exceeds over 35.000 volt. 

    Does a flexible busbar vary from a copper busbar?

    A flexible busbar is often produced from copper and aluminium and therefore does not vary from the copper busbar. When distributing electrical power the switchboard needs a busbar to function. The busbar can be rods, flat strip or solid bar.

    What is the functionality of flexible busbars?

    Flexible busbars have several thin layers of copper or aluminium that are designed to distribute electrical power safely to an AC or DC system.

    What is the functionality of a DC busbars?

    DC current is defined as the power only floats one direction. DC furthermore stands for direct current in contrast to AC current which means the power periodically reverses direction and stands for alternative current.
