DCBs and Load Centres

Take a look at our range of Distribution Control Boards (DCBs) that support voltage isolation, protection and transformation in mining applications.

Optimal protection and distribution

At Ampcontrol, we optimise our equipment to deliver a high level of electrical protection and power distribution. Our switchgear includes a selection of Distribution Control Boards (DCBs) that can isolate, protect and transform voltages to suit customers’ power needs. 

We’ve developed a 1000V DCB tailored for mining applications such as underground development systems. This equipment contains 12 power outlets, can be offered in either flameproof or IP rated enclosures, and is customised to meet specific mine site communication requirements.  

Our 3.3kV longwall DCB also supports the heavy power demands of longwall mining operations. Available in single, dual and triple incoming supplies, this DCB is explosion proof and provides distribution and protection of all 3.3kV circuits on the longwall. 

Each one of our switchgear solutions is backed by a comprehensive overhaul service, ensuring optimal performance and equipment longevity.

AW2000 Load Centres

A trusted field-proven design, our power centres are formed by mounting a load centre directly onto a transformer. The units provide voltage control and protection to low and medium voltage equipment in underground environments.

AUK1000 Switchgear

The AUK1000 serves as an advanced multifunction technology base for our power distribution solutions, such as motor starters and circuit breakers. Its primary role is the reliable control, monitoring and protection of electrically driven plant and machinery in hazardous areas.

SW202 Gate End Box

Our robust range of gate end boxes control the incoming supply to low voltage electrical motors, providing reliable control and protection in hazardous area coal mines.
