Best Practice Methodology and Techniques

NPS service technicians provide best practice planned maintenance of your total control and switchgear system and highly responsive service in the event of any unscheduled system failure.

Many of our customers have systems providing life and economic facilities, as such we understand the importance of minimal downtime and to get you up and running.

The following service methods ensure a high standard of service:

  • Thermal Imaging: A critical area of switchgear service is monitoring all electrical contacts. By thermal imaging testing all contacts we can quickly identify any “hot” contacts, and rectify the issue before any failure occurs.
  • Testing With Complete Safety: Voltages can be very dangerous if service is not undertaken by a trained professional. NPS technicians wear protective gear when undertaking live testing and fully understand the principals of Arc Flash. We not only protect your system, but also operators and service technicians.
  • Full Load Testing: NPS technicians are trained on the NFPA 110 level 1 and level 2 testing requirements. No electrical system can be fully tested unless it is run at full load for a specific time to enable full testing with live connections being monitored, and their ability to carry full load. We can bring a load bank to the location if one is not available.
  • Switchgear Operation Testing & Service: Whether your system is a single standby system, multi-set system with complete parallel gear, or remotely operated, we have the knowledge and equipment to evaluate complete system operation within designed specifications and codes.
