Power Distribution

Power distribution is a key critical component from transmission systems through to workplace and individual homes, since if the equipment fails or stops then so does the revenue. Effective maintenance (planned or predictive) helps protect operational performance by delivering a safe and reliable supply. At RS we support the power distribution industries, by offering thousands of products from different technologies and leading brands to support and maintain the assets within power distribution, from cables and connectors, through to circuit breakers and power meters.

Power Quality & Electrical Safety

In the past, facility managers judged the state of electrical power quality in their facilities based on whether the lights were on or not. If the lights were on, power quality was good. If the lights were off and the occupants were complaining, then power quality was bad. A major concern facility managers have related to electrical power is how much it costs to keep the facility running. To that end, any opportunity to reduce energy consumption is an opportunity to improve efficiency. The typical approach to reducing energy consumption is to upgrade equipment to more energy-efficient models and to reduce energy usage patterns by staff and operations. What’s harder to identify, and what frequently gets lost in all the chatter, is the potential efficiency gain of improving power reliability and preventing the lights from ever going off. Thankfully, the potential causes of power reliability issues are well known and relatively easy to identify. A facility manager and electrical team can determine the level of risk they likely face compared to the level of risk they are comfortable with, and using measurement data they can make the best maintenance decision for the organization’s bottom line.

Water Treatment

For efficient maintenance within water or waste water treatment areas, RS has the product range to help provide the solutions to maintain your infrastructure and keep your essential services flowing smoothly.

IoT - Smart Grid

The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming the way we work, allowing businesses to connect and monitor equipment from almost anywhere. Innovation within the utilities industry is happening through Smart Grid technology, which allows two-way digital communication between power provider and users, so that everything on the grid from power plant to individual appliances can be seen and controlled in real time, which means:

Manage costs & improving efficiency – power can be monitored and controlled on-demand. As energy requirements change during peak and off-peak demands, so do energy prices which reflect the costs to produce it in real time (only produce energy when it is needed – efficient and environmentally sound).

Preventative maintenance – sensors can be used to monitor changes in operating conditions, such as the increase current, temperature, vibration, etc. which intern can identify issues before equipment fails and allows preventative maintenance can be carried out at the optimum time.
