Aiming to increase its domestic switchgear market share, HPL Electric & Power Ltd has rolled out a new and upgraded line of electrical operated switches – the AV ATS (Advance Version Automatic load Transfer Switch), the company said in a press release.
The electrical major is eyeing to market the new AV ATS to healthcare, Internet data centers, commercial buildings, industrial buildings, telecom central office, process manufacturing, distribution power / load management, HVAC, telecommunications, and BMS segments.
“HPL Electric has created a niche for itself in the electrical industry. With the new range of switches, we have entered into the new generation of automatic transfer switches. We believe that it will help us to expand and further strengthen our presence in the switchgear category. We are known for our technologically-advanced and innovative products. Taking this forward, AV ATS is designed as per the latest design and manufacturing needs, meeting world-class standards,” said the company’s joint MD Gautam Seth.
Elaborating about the product, Seth said that the new AV ATS changeover switches are modified electrical operated version of AV changeover. In case of auto failure, emergency handle arrangement is provided for manual operation of switch in ‘off’ position or selecting the supply.
“The AV ATS is compact in size and hence helps in saving space in the enclosures, panels, etc. The handling is easy and simple. Its simplicity and ease in use allows for quick installation. Any pole can be used as neutral pole. Line load reversibility supports user incomer and outgoing design. Plug-in auxiliary contact kit is easy to mount on the switch,” he added.
According to Seth, the company is coordinating seminars and consultant meets in Delhi, Pune, Chandigarh and Chennai for stakeholders such as OEMs, panel builders, infrastructure builders and contractors, government contractors, IP dealers and prescribers (private project and government project consultants).
“Going forward, we aim to reach more stakeholders by organising similar such meets across the country. We are hopeful that the range will fulfil all the safety and aesthetic requirements of our customers, helping us to expand and capture new markets and further strengthen our presence in the switchgear category,” he added.
