In 2016, the NHP Power Hub was purpose built to form a specialist demonstration and training facility located at the NHP head office in Melbourne, Victoria. Initially showcasing selected products from NHP’s power distribution portfolio, in recent times the unique facility has expanded to feature a full solution including medium and low voltage switchgear, and NHP’s soon to be released range of Concept panelboards.
The high quality medium to low voltage solutions on display are fully interactive and are fitted out to replicate a typical site installation. These displays have advanced features that facilitate hands on demonstration, not only delivering specialist knowledge and training, but instilling product confidence for those who visit the facility.
Specialist products display a full range of medium voltage equipment including DF2 de-mountable switchgear with a variety of functional panels, withdrawable switchgear, ring main units, oil immersed and cast resin transformers, Agile protection relays and a 2MVA kiosk substation.
Exclusive to NHP’s medium voltage solutions is the DF2+ air insulated modular type switchgear which features a built-in arc quenching system called ‘Arc Killer’ which can extinguish an arc in less than 50ms.
In addition to the medium voltage range, NHP are proud to display a type tested CUBIC modular switchboard which has been fully furnished with Terasaki circuit breakers and Socomec loadbreak and transfer switches. This CUBIC switchboard display also allows users to observe the 3C overheating protection system in operation, with real-time monitoring displayed on the cloud based ‘Health Dashboard’.
NHP’s low voltage arc flash mitigation solution ‘Arc LogiX’ is also on display giving visitors a realistic simulated arc flash experience, highlighting the benefits such technology solutions can deliver.
Completing the solution on display and ensuring the highest levels of safety, the Power Hub is fully enclosed and protected by NHP’s Axelent safety fencing.
To experience a variety of practical demonstrations and learning activities in the safe and controlled environment please call 1300 NHP NHP or contact your NHP sales representative to arrange a tour of the Power Hub.
