A Motor Control Center (MCC) consists of a number of electric motor starters grouped together in a single assembly. This ensure safe operation and control & maintenance of the motors and their related switchgear as well as the plant process.
A Containerised motor control centre utilises an extremely modified marine container to accommodate the assembly, serving as a more versatile and cost-effective sub-station.
Supplied to Oil & Gas, Process Plants and Power Stations resulting in reduced downtime due to the interchangeability of motor starters whilst the board is powered. It has higher safety features for personnel as maintenance and testing can be carried out in a workshop instead of directly on the board in the substation.
Logic Controllers & Automation System encompass sensitive components and communication systems that operate on low voltage/current which can be affected by heavy-current switchgear and as a result are generally housed separately. The unique features make our products energy efficient and enhance process controls.
A control desk is a remote operating station, generally in a control-room which is removed from the plant-process. From the control desks an operator is able to perform many of the required functions. General Control Panels are used for controlling one or two functions in remote areas in a plant such as a small pump and cooling fan with automatic ‘stop/start’ functions.
Supplier of Motor Starter Panels which are wall mounted or floor standing for all applications. Pumps, Sampler Panels, Conveyors, Mixers, etc. Panels can be manufactured from polycarbonate, mild steel, 3DR12 or stainless up to IP65.
A Power Distribution Board is where the main incoming electrical supply enters a plant or installation and is subsequently distributed to the various areas of requirement.
Signaling stations require extremely high stability of power. LVS has, over many years, supplied Signaling Power Distribution Boards for signaling stations used mainly on the Transnet Railway lines. These boards are built to very high specifications with redundancy in case of power outages.
LVS are suppliers of MV and HV Power Transformers
Electronic Motor Starters, due to their component nature, generate large amounts of heat. When of a large rating, Electronic Motor Starters need to be accompanied in their own separate enclosure, with the required cooling and ancillaries. These unique product features make our products energy efficient and enhance process controls.
