MODUTEC MODULAR ENCLOSURES

MODUTEC (founded in 2007) is a patented 30mm grid modular system, and this enables the enclosure to be arranged in an unlimited number of ways. It is extensively tested and verified to IEC 61439-1/2 for low voltage switchboards and IEC 62271-200 for medium voltage switchboards. All major brands of breakers, just fit perfectly into the MODUTEC modular switchboard enclosure system. It is the result of 35 years of innovative thinking, R&D and continuous testing at recognised test stations to global standards.

Standardization of Height, Width & Depth is enabled that empowers scaling & productivity. A range of Panel Accessories along with Bus Bar support systems are available to choose from. All Doors are reversible from LHS to RHS and vice versa. Two vertical modules can be altered (even at site) to form one bigger module and vice versa. In short, the enclosure system is Flexible, Adaptable and Versatile.

Unlike in other modular models available abroad, with MODUTEC, the Panel Builder can shear (piece) the length of the Frame Bar or Cross Bar into smaller lengths (pieces) as required for use. This tremendously reduces the inventory he has to carry and work never gets constrained for want of a specific length of profile which may not be readily available in his stock (peace of mind). This concept of "Piece – Pieces – Peace" is a Decisive Competitive Edge MODUTEC has.

MODUTEC enclosure systems come with a range of accessories and bus bar support systems. These supports are suitable for either 6mm or 10mm thick bus bars. Provision is available to mount up to 7100A copper or up to 5000A aluminium bus bars and with supports that can handle fault levels as high as 120kA for 1 sec or 50kA for 3 secs.

Every supply of MODULAR enclosures carries an Installation Manual along with detailed technical data. Apart from this, on request, our service engineer can personally support, coach and orient the team at the panel Builder's location on how best to put the Switchboard together. Videos will be shortly released in this regard and MODUTEC is committed to facilitating scaling your Panel board business with ease.

MODUTEC modular enclosures are therefore the most versatile switchboard enclosure systems at the best possible price. All shipping sections of Panels rest on a modular base frame which incorporates the possibility to join to make a free-standing line up and at the same time is easy to transport section wise. We also advise in our Partner program so many more standardizations that would help simplify panel building.

Items that constitute the MODUTEC modular switchboard enclosure system
  • MODUTEC Frame Bar: A three bend profile that's punched, pierced and tapped so as to make the assembly of the Switchboard quick, while being flexible, adaptable and versatile. The tapped holes are at a pitch of 30mm which renders the system to make Switchboards in multiple of 30mm in the X, Y & Z axis. These are available in 2400mm length pieces or in smaller sizes starting from 180mm.
  • MODUTEC Cross Bar: A four bend profile that provides for the internal forms of construction as well. It adds to the strength of the Switchboard as the weight of the Switchgear, Bus Bars etc are taken by this frame that gets built, not the walls as in conventional welded designs. These are available in 2400mm length pieces or in smaller sizes starting from 180mm.
  • MODUTEC Tripod: This is an aluminum alloy, pressure die cast and helps form the corners of the Switchboard shipping sections. It also aids in the earthing continuity of the Panel line up.
  • MODUTEC Fixed Type Compartment: is useful in building Form 3 & 4 types and their sub forms as per IEC 61439 standard. The beauty of this system is that if for a reason, two compartments would need to be merged into one or vice versa to accommodate a changed Project requirement, this can be facilitated, unlike for welded designs and even at site!
  • MODUTEC Hinged Doors: come with a double bending on all 4 edges. This adds significantly to the strength, aesthetics & IP clause protection with Neoprene / EPDB gaskets to boot. They are provided with Aluminum hinges and door locks as required. A special handle arrangement is given on the locks to facilitate easy opening of the door.
  • MODUTEC Bolted Doors: come in standard sizes and can be customized too. The door bolting arrangement is such that the CSK screws used render the bolted door flush in surface and therefore adds to the looks of the switchboard.
  • MODUTEC Hinge: This is a special hinge that helps in enabling a perfect IP protection as well as facilitating earthing continuity from the Panel door to the base. The door opens with ease and up to 120 degrees.
  • MODUTEC Mounting Plate: is available for the entire height of the Module or in several smaller sizes as needed. These are fitted onto the pre-tapped holes in the profiles. Provision can be made to space them at a convenient depth as required.
  • MODUTEC Partition Plate: are used to segregate the different compartments width wise, height wise and depth wise. These are used to form barriers, separate live parts from contact to humans and provide for Forms of Construction as per IEC 61439 as required for the given application.
  • MODUTEC Modular joiner components are precision manufactured for different applications and zinc plated. These supports the mounting of various partitions, Door Locks, Door bolts and so on.
  • MODUTEC Fastners have been standardized on Allen bolt type of hardware for better torque strength, aesthetics and robustness. Associated washers, nuts and special hardware are used to complete the installation. M6*20 hardware are used at the tripods and M6* 12 for the rest of the frame and joiner fixing as a standard.
  • MODUTEC Gasket is EPDM D Type which is good at withstanding higher temperatures and also chemically resistant. These are affixed with a strong adhesive for a firm grip while offering the required IP protection.
  • MODUTEC Partitions are standard as well as custom designed. These do not carry the weight of the Panel and serve only as form of construction separators. Hence, they can be 1mm to 1.6mm thick and in CRCA powder coated or 120 GSM galvanized iron sheet steel as per Customer choice.

MT Profiles

Especially for Partner Panel Builders who have the infrastructure to do the Doors, Partitions & Plinths, we support you in advancing to the MODUTEC modular enclosure partnership. This also gives you the advantage of these being Type Tested Switchboards in both low voltage and medium voltage. It helps standardize, systematize and scale your business, not to forget simplifying panel building for you!

  • MODUTEC LV Profiles (Frame Bars FB & Cross Bars CB) are made from 2mm Electro- Galvanised Steel and can be delivered
    • i. as such for these Partners who would then carry inventory of typically 2400 mm length of each of FB & CB as required for the next 3 months.
    • ii. Or in cut lengths with or without powder coating as required. These could be for project based requirements along with a combination of inventory required as per that Panel Builder's XYZ Standards adopted.
  • These profiles are a combination of the strength of steel, the protection of zinc and the stability of aluminium, which makes it an outstanding product in every way, respecting both the environment and the natural beauty of steel… forever!
  • Ease of working during bonding, cold forming, cutting, deep drawing, stamping and welding operations is enabled as required without the formation of rust as is the quality of the material.
  • Aluminium Alloy Tripod with suitable hardware per Frame are also provided.
  • Development Drawings of partitions, Doors and Plinth etcare available on signing up as a MODUTEC Partner.
  • Different varieties of locks, Bus Bar supports (based on current ratings), Modular components, Gaskets, Fasteners & a range of Panel accessories.
  • This will enable the Partner Panel Builder to use just the MODUTEC Profiles, accessories & our Development Drg guidelines and build a MODULAR Switchboard as per Type Tested designs, on his own.
