Uses And Types Of Distribution Boards

The main electrical supply system for any commercial or residential entity is the distribution board. The main cable enters the distribution board and is then dispersed in secondary circuits such as lights and plugs via breakers. It is critical for home and appliance safety to maintain optimum power distribution for the optimal functioning of all devices. BS bars, DIN rail, and a neutral link are installed on distribution boards.

DB boards are more than simply an enclosure; they are an entire system with neutral linkages, an earth leakage unit, and interconnecting wires with the express goal of ensuring proper electrical distribution in your home.

Applications Of Distribution Boards 

  • Electrical Distribution: This is where you distribute and control the electrical supply to various parts of your home. It divides the electrical distribution into secondary or smaller circuits.
  • Electrical Security: Each small circuit will be protected by a circuit breaker or fuse. Fuses are no longer in use due to their inability to be reused.

Types of Electrical Distribution Boards

Electrical distribution boards are grouped into several varieties based on their design, use, and other characteristics. Some examples are as follows:

  • Main Breaker Panel: 

Main breaker panels are among the most common, and they are usually used as a house stabiliser. These electrical distribution boards are capable of tracking the amperage power going across the circuits and protecting the secondary electrical circuits. They aid in determining when to increase or decrease the flow of electricity based on the needs of the linked item. The main breaker distribution panel is protected by connecting it to power breakers, preventing a circuit from overheating.

  • Main Lug Panel:

The electrical wires in the main lug panel are designed to run through lugs, and a circuit breaker is linked to them. The main lug panel is specifically constructed and utilised to assess whether the main power line has upstream current flowing through it. It plays an important role in disconnecting the metre during crises. When there is an unusually high current flowing through the electrical wires in the lug panel, the power breaker is tripped, and the power metre immediately reduces the current.

  • Subpanels: 

Subpanels are commonly employed because of the safety these electrical distribution boards provide. Subpanels are smaller in size and easier to handle. The subpanel is normally linked to the main power line of the house and can then be used to transmit power to various parts of the house so that all connected appliances can function properly.
