1 Electrical Distribution Services for Mining and Metals Industries Solutions to help maximize plant reliability and ensure personnel safety Make the most of your energy SM

2 Electrical Systems are Serious Business. You need serious professionals who can provide solid advice and recommendations to promote safety and to help ensure reliable and continuous power. 2

3 Engineering Services The power system engineering team from Schneider Electric has the knowledge and experience to get the job done. We are focused on helping facilities manage their energy and solve complex power system issues that may involve equipment, automation, the electrical system, or the utility. Power System Assessment and Design Services Schneider Electric Engineering Services provides industry-leading expertise required to complete the most challenging design and upgrade projects, including turnkey solutions and brownfield projects. In addition, we offer power system studies and assessments to enable you to make more informed decisions when managing your electrical equipment. Our power system engineering services are performed in accordance with IEEE, ANSI, NEC and OSHA/MSHA standards. Our nationwide network of registered professional engineers, collectively registered in every state of the U.S., are recognized as industry experts in power system analysis, design, and codes and standards. Power Quality Correction Technologies designed to lower energy costs could cause unexpected power quality disturbances. To reduce the number and severity of these disturbances, Schneider Electric provides cost-effective solutions that include power factor correction and harmonic mitigation equipment, installation, and commissioning. System Analysis including Arc Flash Studies (NFPA 70E Compliance) Schneider Electric is a recognized leader in promoting Electrical Workplace Safety and NFPA 70E compliance. Identifying the electrical hazards and training employees how to recognize and protect themselves from those hazards are vitally important and part of the NFPA 70E compliance requirements. An arc flash analysis, performed by Schneider Electric professional engineers, will identify approach boundaries and appropriate levels of personal protective equipment (PPE). Did you know? Schneider Electric offers additional products and services to promote workplace safety, including: NFPA 70E Training Equipment Labeling Arc Flash Mitigation Solutions Infrared Viewing Windows Remote Racking Systems for MV Circuit Breakers Wireless Temperature Monitoring System 3

5 New Installation Services Reduce risk and help ensure reliable installation and equipment performance. Start-Up and Commissioning Protect your new equipment investment with our start-up and commissioning services. Qualified service representatives will confirm your equipment is installed properly, meets factory standards, and passes stringent performance tests to minimize future downtime delays. Turnkey Solutions Reduce costs and the duration of an electrical installation project with a turnkey solution from Schneider Electric Services. We offer complete management of an installation project when supplying new Schneider Electric equipment and services in an engineered package. Engineering resources are also available for customized solutions. According to IEEE, the rate of electrical component failures is three times higher in facilities that do not perform preventive maintenance on their electrical systems. Also Available Extended warranties allow you to protect your investment for years to come. Customer training on equipment operation and maintenance by qualified factory-trained technicians. Site measurement services are ideal for large and/or complex jobs where there is an increased potential for measurement errors. Maintenance & Testing If your power equipment isn t performing, your plant isn t performing. To help ensure the reliable operation of your electrical equipment, periodic maintenance, cleaning, and lubrication is needed. Failure to do so could result in costly downtime. Preventive Maintenance and Testing Performed by qualified field service representatives, our comprehensive onsite maintenance and testing services are available anywhere in the United States for any manufacturer s equipment. Maintenance Records Services To help minimize downtime and extend equipment life, Schneider Electric offers Maintenance Records Services, which features a robust software package, secure centralized data storage, field evaluation, and engineering analysis. Service Agreements Our custom service agreements and facility-wide outage management services help ensure your equipment is maintained properly year-after-year. 5

7 Modernization & Upgrade Spending too much time and money on aging equipment? Modernization solutions from Schneider Electric will upgrade your existing switchgear or motor control centers to current technology. We bring together exceptional design engineering and installation expertise in complete solutions that are designed to minimize downtime, improve reliability, and extend the life of your equipment. Switchgear Modernization Solutions For existing switchgear line-ups, we offer new custom-engineered, low-voltage (LV) or medium-voltage (MV) circuit breakers which are designed to fit into the existing switchgear cell with minimal modification and downtime. Our upgrade solutions utilize the: Masterpact NT/NW circuit breaker for LV systems Magnum circuit breaker for MV systems Designs are available for most manufacturers switchgear. Direct Replacement Units for Low-Voltage (LV) Motor Control Centers (MCCs) Upgrade your motor control centers with industry-leading components, without replacing the structure and bus. New direct replacement MCC units are available for most major brands of motor control centers for both vintage and current styles. A direct replacement unit can be supplied as a new branch feeder, full-voltage starter, solid-state starter, or variable frequency drive unit (bucket). To better manage critical processes, increase productivity, and save energy, upgrade your existing MCC to an intelligent MCC. Additional Modernization Solutions Available Circuit Breaker Reconditioning Trip Unit Retrofit Vacuum Starter Conversion Relay and Metering Retrofits EAF (Electric Arc Furnace) Circuit Breakers Masterpact and Magnum replacement circuit breakers for switchgear are installed, tested, and commissioned by Schneider Electric factory-trained service technicians and are backed by a one-year warranty. Masterpact Low- Voltage Circuit Breaker Magnum Medium- Voltage Circuit Breaker EAF (Electric Arc Furnace) Circuit Breaker Square D replacement MCC unit installed in General Electric 7700 Series structure 7
