New Options for Upgrading Existing Panelboards
More and more customers need to upgrade their existing electrical systems to meet their growing power demand. The digital age
coupled with the aging infrastructure is driving these opportunities. However, having to upgrade existing panelboards can
present many challenges for facilities managers.
Many older facilities may have a panel flush mounted in plaster, concrete or even block walls. Replacing the entire panel
would require significant wall repair that can increase overall downtime and consume project dollars. Another concern in
removing a panel could be disturbing installation such as asbestos. This again, can add time in money to the job for
For the situations above, the preferred way to upgrade the panelboard would be to use the existing box. However, there can be
additional obstacles that many people may think would prevent them from doing so, such as:
- The box is too shallow or short to accommodate and upgrade
- Mounting a new interior in the box may not line up properly with the cover and dead-front
- Lead times can be too long for the project time line
- It is not always easy for a contractor to determine if the existing box specs can accommodate the upgrade and therefore
they may be hesitant to do a detailed take off of the existing box specs.
The Pow-R-Line 1R, 240V max retrofit panelboards have been designed to fit into shallow (4-1/2" deep) and narrow (14" wide)
existing boxes. The Pow-R-Line 2R, 600Y/347V retrofit panelboard fits into a 4-3/4" deep x 14" wide existing enclosure. The
compact design allows you to handle even the most challenging upgrade needs. Both feature an innovative field adjustable
interior assembly that has a built-in adjustable depth gauge relieving the pressure of the precise field measurement.
To satisfy the need for quick lead times and the desire for easier selection, we have made the retrofit panelboard available
through our multiple Satellite plant locations across the country. Our retrofit panelboards are the 1st of their kind to be
designed specifically for retrofitting applications.
