Industrial Vs. Commercial Electrical? What’s the difference?
It doesn’t mean that every once in on occasion, a commercial electrician will be qualified to work on higher voltage and more complicated electrical systems, generators, and cooling systems that accompanies a large heating or air conditioning unit. It all depends on the facility.
An industrial electrician, however, has daily tasks that differ entirely. In general, the level of expertise required of an industrial electrician is both extensive and very specific to the plant or equipment in the industry or plant in question. Some industrial electricians will require specific certification for the equipment being serviced. Many years in an apprenticeship training program can also be necessary to ensure the expertise and thorough knowledge of this field. Manufacturing and production facilities have electrical needs that are far different from the general needs encountered in other avenues of the electrical profession.
- Custom Control Panels
- Our team reviews the estimated panel before creating a blank panel using a drafting tool like AutoCAD or software specifically used for panel design, and then the individual components and elements are filled in.
- Fiber Optics & Cat 5
- Most of us couldn’t imagine life without having access to Wi-Fi, but these wireless networks would be pointless if they didn’t have some pretty decent cabling beneath it. With technology continually moving forwards at an increasingly fast pace, it’s important that the cabling infrastructure for your office communication can keep up with the needs of your business.
- Three-phase systems
- The three-phase system acts as the foundation of the majority of electrical systems which consists of the generation, then transmission, and finally the consumption of energy. This is one of Nikola Tesla’s most important innovations that contributed to society, as it enabled energy generation and transmission that simplified as well as much more efficient.
- Process control wiring
- Essential for the survival of all human life, clean water is also vital for residential and commercial use, as well as for industrial applications such as mining, groundwater remediation, and refining petroleum. This includes drinking and service water, as well as water used for hydroelectricity which generate electrical power.
