Relay and Metering Upgrades
Relay and metering upgrades improve safety by achieving faster detection and clearing time for arc flashes. The two main components of this are the protective relay and the circuit breaker interrupting times. By interrupting the arc flash energy wave early, the hazard to personnel is greatly reduced.
Relay Testing and Maintenance
IPS PowerServe can test and verify the optimal operation of your relays through system functional testing, trip checks and in-service testing. Our relay maintenance services include detailed test reports and complete schedules. We have the ability to maintain electromechanical, solid state and microprocessor relays.
