Caima | EST Electrical Boards


Caima is a company specializing in the pulp industry, which relied on the good work developed by EST. This time to design an MCC (Motor Control Center).

In accordance with the customer specifications, and having as reference the standard IEC 61 439, the EST developed the electrical board conforming to form 2b.

EST aims to monitor the evolution of technology and, as such, with this board is starting a new way of framing. The separation of the various constituent elements of the board (bus, functional and terminal areas) does not show improvements in electrical performance, however, it presents improvements in safety.

Safety in these frames is improved by the use of metal partitions or insulation material, preventing contact of active parts belonging to the functional unit and passage of foreign bodies from a functional unit to an adjacent functional unit.

The main advantage, in addition to the increased safety, given by this type of electrical panel, consists in the ease of sectioning only part of the frame while the other parts remain energized and in their normal operation.

Another advantage associated with this type of frames is a possible need to update (either for reasons of power increase or change of technology). This process is simplified over a shorter period of time.

We are very grateful, once again, for the confidence placed in EST!
