Retrofitting—enhancing the capacity of a given machine or a system to perform optimally is a practice well established for maintenance of older versions of machines, panels and electrical circuits that are dated. Nevertheless, the choice of this maintenance and upgradation of technologies has always been individual decision—many times leading to short circuits and outages, in case the activity has not been undertaken timely.
However, this scenario is changing fast. As every phase of daily life is adapting to Industry 4.0, where the appliances and machines are communicating with each other and thus using digital interface, two inputs cannot fail at any point—data connection and power supply. As the data economy thrives as a function of smart technologies, smoothening out the error prone manual processes, basic connectivity and power needs to be fully streamlined and state-of-the art.
Retrofitting of older electrical installations are also cost effective and a greener choice, rather than changing the entire set-up. As uninterrupted power supply and quality of the supply are imperative for tech smart processes, services, buildings, offices, industries and every other set up—the appliances used for retrofitting are also manufactured keeping in mind voltage fluctuations, low-voltage conditions, and suitable linking products like cables, panels and ducts. It is a specialised service, which needs a 360-degree vision of the old and new installations and matching them up, so as to iron out any kind of mismatch that may happen.
The complete solution integration can be applicable to any industry —right from OEM manufacturers to offices of government authorities. In today’s business mindset where the infrastructure requested is plug and play, rarely do managers look into the power supply system and its upgradation. An efficient backend of power supply goes a long way into building up a cost effective, agile and flexible smart front-end where Internet, wireless sensors, software and other advanced technologies work together to optimize deliveries. Even as installation of smart switchgear needs expensive budget, quality retrofitting of the existing network and timely maintenance can offer same comfort level for the businesses.
