Integrated Power Center (IPC)

What Does An Integrated Power Center Do?

An IPC manages power distribution through a combination of a panelboard and a transformer. This system puts the equipment in a central, compact location so that safely monitoring and handling power distribution becomes simplified. This one solution helps replace the need for multiple panelboards in a system.

Key Features of IPC:

The integrated power center bundles the panelboard with a dry type transformer into one factory-assembled and prewired integrated solution. This approach replaces the traditional method of independently mounting each panelboard, lighting control and building management system.
IPCs can be customized further with the addition of third party components, such as building management systems, automatic transfer switches or power conditioners. Typical applications for IPC include office buildings, schools, and healthcare facilities.

  • Meets Applicable Codes and Standards – Equipment is designed and assembled to comply with applicable National Electrical Code (NEC) and UL requirements.
  • Prewired, factory assembled for faster installation 
  • Integrated automatic transfer switches
  • Freestanding construction that can be close-coupled to QED switchboards
  • Available in NEMA 1, NEMA 1 with drip hood, and NEMA 3R construction
  • Hinged panelboard wire gutter access door
  • Factory-installed power cables
  • Top and bottom conduit entry/exit space available

Benefits of the IPC

  • Reduced Equipment Space – Panels are stacked above a transformer, saving valuable floor space.
  • Reduced Installation Time – Panels and transformer are factory assembled and cabled into a single enclosure, which means installation can take hours rather than days.
  • Reduced Material Cost – Wiring between the internal components of the section (ie: transformers, panels, individually mounted circuit breakers, contactors) is done at the factory, eliminating conduit, box connectors and the associated labor.
  • Reduced Material Handling – System requires fewer items to receive, inventory and install.
  • Equipment Standardization – Equipment layouts are identical when required so that personnel know how to operate the electrical equipment regardless of where it is installed.
  • Quality Construction – Electrical distribution equipment is factory assembled in a controlled factory environment, ensuring the highest quality standards are met.
