Russelectric, a Siemens Business, is spotlighting its system control upgrades designed to enhance reliability, operational control, and maintenance ease for critical power equipment.

These upgrades offer a cost-effective alternative to complete equipment replacement, delivering improved performance, cutting-edge technology, and extended equipment lifespan.

By opting for upgrades, customers benefit from decreased maintenance needs and enhanced serviceability. Russelectric field engineers carry out these upgrades, ensuring professional and efficient service backed by the Russelectric warranty. These upgrades are completed swiftly, providing significant improvements without extended downtime.

ATS upgrades

Russelectric provides automatic transfer switch (ATS) and bypass isolation switch control system upgrades during scheduled shutdowns. These upgrades enhance switch operating accuracy and functionality, updating control, monitoring, and communication protocols to mitigate issues related to legacy component availability.

Operator interface and communications

Upgrading to the latest operator interface technology and communication equipment significantly boosts system monitoring capabilities. Russelectric offers detailed current system status through a dynamic one-line graphical interface, complete with comprehensive alarm and event history for quick problem resolution. Optional TJC (The Joint Commission) reporting and remote system access are also available.

PLC upgrades

Many existing systems use legacy or soon-to-be obsolete PLC architecture. Russelectric can upgrade these control systems to the latest technology with minimal program changes, enhancing performance and supporting advanced communications. Most upgrades are performed without interrupting critical loads, with drop-in replacements available.

Breaker upgrade solutions

Russelectric replaces obsolete or unsupported vintage power breakers and accessories with new OEM-supplied replacements, tailored for form, fit, and function, to improve overcurrent selectivity. These upgrades enable the use of new options and accessories, such as arc reduction modes and Zone Selective Interlocking (ZSI), while addressing parts availability concerns for circuit breaker repairs. Upgrades are available for various circuit breaker manufacturers.

With these enhancements, Russelectric provides a reliable, cost-effective solution to keep mission-critical power systems up-to-date and efficient.
