WECS Electric Supply is offering a low cost, materials only retrofit kit for the CB1 and K1 main power devices. Retrofitting your EXISTING LVDP panels IN PLACE, the kit is suitable for replacing the OBSOLETE ABB Emax, Siemens SBS or ANY other CB1/K1 units in the field. WECS provides an in-depth field installation manual and the kit is an engineered product solution with a single part number designed to meet or exceed the original equipment form-fit-function backed with a 2-year product warranty.
The kit provides full bussing and wiring to change out the CB1. Additionally we offer the retrofit of the main contactor (K1) to eliminate the two or three parallel contactors with a replacement of a single contactor. This will eliminate the historically recognized problems resulting from timing of engaging the existing multiple contactors simultaneously, the failure of one or more of the contactors or failure of internal components making for unbalanced load sharing.
WECS partner NUCO Controls is a nationally recognized control panel manufacturer. The NUCO engineering and management team were the originally design engineers and builders of nearly 6000 early GE LVDP panels and maintains the collective knowledge of the original engineering design as well as an intimate knowledge of the proper retrofitting of the existing GE 1.5/1.6 bus-work and control needs with superior products and modern CB1 and K1 technology.
