What are the important electrical design considerations for factories?

When it comes to electrical design for factory settings, there are a number of things to consider. These include:

  • Lighting- lighting is essential for your factory workers to be productive and well motivated. While many factories lack windows and natural light, you can make up for this by providing good quality artificial lighting. This should include task lighting for areas were specific light levels are needed to provide support for detailed work, as well as adjustable down-lights. You should also consider using LED lights to save money on electricity bills and lamp maintenance.
  • Security- keeping your factory secure can be essential, considering all of the high tech equipment and valuable that may be inside. Electrical security solutions such as locks and CCTV can be a great way to keep your property, and staff safe. You can consider RFID key cards, or even pin pad locks for a simple way to switch to electrical security. Lighting and motion sensitive cameras installed externally can also be a good way to keep your property safe and secure, even at night.
