JB Switchgear Solutions was recently awarded official licensed manufacturing partner status for Logstrup’s range of switchgear and controlgear assemblies. The official license handover was conducted by Morten R. Logstrup from Logstrup Denmark, accompanied by Ludi Erasmus of Electro-Modular. JB Switchgears’ MD, Johan Basson said this was an exciting development that further enhanced the company’s objective to become a supplier of choice in the marketplace.

In order to achieve the benefits of personnel safety, equipment and goods protection, service continuity, energy efficiency and efficient spare parts management; plant managers should strategically schedule and employ a variety of practices to maintain electrical distribution equipment and optimise the total cost of ownership of their power infrastructures. Schneider Electric experts explain that various strategies for electrical distribution equipment maintenance have varying effects on the above objectives.

Since 2015, both local and international standards have been amended and this has created some confusion of the compliance requirements of low voltage switchgear. Switchgear is indispensable in the transmission of electricity to power consumers. Inadequate testing and/or the purchase of untested products can have dire consequences to the supply of electricity as a result of increased explosions or malfunctions of equipment.

Spazio Lighting was fortunate enough to attend the Hong Kong Trade Development Council’s (HKTDC) Hong Kong International Lighting Fair Autumn 2019. Attending this fair gave the company the opportunity to meet with current and potential suppliers as well as to view the latest trends in lighting technology and design, in order to introduce fresh designs and groundbreaking technologies to the South African market. This year’s fair certainly did not disappoint, with an array of interesting new designs and technologies on display.
