Domestic power supply
We can recommend the R460, RH500 or the RB460. These feeder pillars have a good size for the standard domestic metering equipment required for a new power supply. Domestic supplies are typically under 300 kVA. Depending on equipment being used, you can opt for R pillars, RH pillars and the more spacious RB Cabinet range with 6 sizes available.
You can also opt for a permanent supply enclosure or PS60. If there is a need to separate the DNO equipment from the consumer’s equipment, the PS60 has segregated compartments within one cabinet, with independently lockable doors.
Industrial power supply
Temporary Builders Supply Connections or TBS
Temporary builders supply are connections that are made to power a construction site and are by nature temporary. Temporary connections may require different earthing. Please bear in mind the equipment used and if your DNO is happy using a metal enclosure to house the temporary supply. Always check with your DNO or your connection provider to ensure that you meet their requirements as they are responsible for the connection to the network.
Permanent Supply or PS
A Permanent Supply Kiosk is designed to move the equipment associated with a building’s electricity supply outside the property. This equipment typically includes the Distribution Network Operator’s (DNO’s) “service head” or cut out and, for larger supplies, a chamber for a CT metered supplies. The Permanent Supply Kiosk has a separate compartment for this and another compartment for the user’s equipment (e.g. the meter(s), the distribution board etc).
The advantages of housing the electricity supply outside a property may be to save space that can be used more profitably. The supply enclosure can also be installed right on the boundary of the property (curtilage), meaning less installation work for the DNO and therefore less cost for the property owner.
