Women's Day Event 2020

CBI-electric: low voltage hosted its first ever Women’s Day Event to celebrate our PHENOMENAL WOMEN.


EBM – Class 1, single and 3 phase energy meters

The energy broadcast meter (EBM) is a class 1 billable meter. The meter is available in a single and three phase variation. Power consumption is indicated via a 7-digit tamper-proof counter showing kWh consumption and a red LED, pulsing at 1000 pulses per kWh. The meter has an IP54 (outdoor) rating. The EBM operates at a nominal current of 5 A and is rated up to 80 A. The units are produced in 120 V/ 60 Hz or 230 V/ 50 Hz derivatives.

CBI-electric supports Jozi FM initiative for Mandela Day

As part of our Mandela Day 2019 campaign, CBI-electric: low voltage has donated electrical protective devices in support of Jozi FM's initiative of building a computer lab for the Soweto Red Cross in Rockville.

CBI-electric launches a remote actuation unit

With the introduction of renewable energy into the main stream market and the drive for higher data performance of systems, companies are looking to exploit the enabling possibilities of DC power.  These developments in technology and increased DC power usage require dedicated DC protection equipment.


CBI-electric assists Customers with Auto Load Shedding

CBI-electric has, for a number of years, developed products that contribute substantially towards the efficient use of electrical energy. Products such as energy management devices and automatic load shedding devices, now have renewed significance as they have been developed to enable end-users of electricity to themselves manage their own power usage. Automatic load shedding maintains consumption below maximum demand, thereby saving penalty charges.

LV circuit breakers: a yardstick to service life

When determining whether an installed circuit breaker should be replaced or not, safety is the main priority. When fuses were phased out in the 1950s and the changeover to circuit breakers began, the new technology required a deviation from surface-mounted installations towards distribution panels.

CBI-electric full DC product range

With the introduction of renewable energy into the mainstream market and the drive for higher data performance of systems, companies are looking to push the boundaries of how DC can be applied.  With all of the advances in DC usage, dedicated DC protection equipment is essential to ensure the safety of systems, equipment and people.
