Switchboards

The switchboard definition.

The NEC describes a switchboard as “a large single panel, frame, or assembly of panels on which are mounted, on the face or back, or both, switches, overcurrent and other protective devices, buses and usually instruments.” Essentially your switchboard, also referred to as an electrical main switchboard or a distribution switchboard, is your distribution center. Distribution switchboards can supply electricity to several panelboards which then deliver electricity to specific circuits/collection of circuits, but not vice versa. Switchboards also utilize both horizontal and vertical bus, with horizontal bus delivering electricity between different sections of the switchboard, and vertical bus distributing power throughout the different branch circuits.

As far as switchboard enclosures go, switchboards always come enclosed, and are built and designed across a number of NEMA ratings, so they can be installed both outdoors and indoors.

The switchboard details.

When looking to buy a switchboard, it’s helpful to know some of the following. Switchboards are always 3 phase. Switchboards are also relatively versatile in that they can be either floor-mounted or wall-mounted. Switchboard designs also allow for both front and back access. Further, a large majority of switchboards are modular switchboards, composed of individual cubicles that are then composed of switchboard modules. Each of these cubicles can be custom configured and designed, removed and emptied, depending on your exact specifications.

With amp ratings ranging from 1200A to 5000A, switchboards are used for both AC and DC currents for a variety of industrial and large commercial applications. Due to their large size, switchboards can accommodate larger breakers like insulated case circuit breakers.
