New Sub-board Installation in Freshwater, NSW

AB Electrical & Communications recently completed a job for a client who was looking to install an IP66 Sub-board in their newly renovated backyard. The client wanted the sub-board to accommodate heatstrips, lighting, general power, a spa bath, and a hot water system. To ensure the safety and durability of the installation, AB Electrical & Communications ran the circuits in underground conduits and terminated them in a weatherproof enclosure.

What is an electrical sub-board?

But what exactly is an electrical sub-board? An electrical sub-board, also known as a subpanel, is a smaller distribution panel that is installed in addition to the main electrical panel. It is used to distribute power to a specific area or load, such as an addition to a house or a detached garage. Sub-boards allow for greater flexibility and ease of maintenance, as they allow for the isolation of certain circuits for repair or modification without affecting the rest of the electrical system.

What work was completed

During the job, AB Electrical & Communications ran a number of circuits, including sub mains, in underground conduits. They also installed a weatherproof IP66 enclosure for all wiring and junctions, ensuring that all cabling was securely in place and protected from the elements. The team then installed the IP66 sub-board, along with a main switch and five safety switches to provide circuit protection.

Reasons for a new sub-board installation

There are several reasons why a homeowner might choose to install a new sub-board in their home. In some cases, the main electrical panel may be at capacity and unable to accommodate any additional circuits. In others, the homeowner may want to add an additional electrical load, such as a detached garage or workshop, that requires its own circuit protection. Whatever the reason, a new sub-board installation can provide the additional electrical capacity and protection needed for a home or business.

What’s the difference between a sub panel and a main panel?

It’s important to note that there is a difference between a sub panel and a main panel. A main panel is the primary distribution point for electrical power in a home or business, and it is usually located near the electrical meter. A sub panel, on the other hand, is a secondary panel that is installed in addition to the main panel and is used to distribute power to specific areas or loads.

About the job

The job was completed at a home located on Johnson Street in Freshwater, New South Wales. The team at AB Electrical & Communications was led by Tradesman Benny, with Apprentice Matt assisting on the job. With their expertise and attention to detail, the team was able to successfully complete the installation of the IP66 Sub-board, ensuring that the client’s newly renovated backyard had the electrical capacity and protection it needed.
