Electrical System Surveys
We provide inspections of electronic MGPS and ICCP control panels. As technology changes at a rapid pace, and many of those panels are outdated, it is important to ensure that they remain in compliance with code and regulations.
Many factors affect the performance of a control panel. Changes in the environment where they are mounted may compromise their ability to function properly and show accurate readings. For instance, panels may overheat due to high temperatures in the engine rooms which could frequently result in premature component failure or process shutdowns.
When completing an electrical survey, we check for the following issues:
- IP ratings
- Component labelling
- Loose wires
- Communication wires running too close to high voltage conductors
- PCB boards and meter cards
- Corroded wiring
- Confirmation that the panel meets the code (UL, CSA, CE etc.)
Most of all, the inspection ensures safety to all the ships personnel that work with the control panels.
