What Is A Switch Board?

At Deionno Electrical, we can provide fast and efficient switch upgrades Adelaide. Sometimes referred to as a fuse box, power box or power board, an electrical switchboard is the basically the power centre of your home’s electrical supply. Used to safely distribute electricity throughout your residential or commercial property, a switchboard works by relaying electricity though several circuits. This division of power allows the board to control the power flow throughout the property, dividing the main power supply into smaller bursts prior to distribution.

There are several types of electrical switchboard which differ based on their voltage type, insulation medium, operating type, current rating, and construction type. While the switchboard supplies power to different locations around the home, it is not the main supplier of electricity. Switchboards are connected to a greater power source such as a generator and are responsible for distributing that electricity around the home.
