Course Decription

This course covers components and circuits inside and outside electrical panels: wiring inside a cabinet and a 60mm busbar system. The course is real-life-oriented, and whether you work as a designer, panel builder, or system integrator, you will have a real benefit.

There are two real treats at the end of the course (last two videos/lessons):

  1. 119 photos of electrical cabinets from international projects: both power and control cabinets, also SIVACON
  2. RiLine60 busbar system in 3D in Eplan PRO Panel: where we experience in 3D how a 60 mm busbar system looks in “reality”.
