Early March saw a new Production Distribution panel installed down stage left at the Birmingham Hippodrome.
Designed by PTB’s Andy Phillips to comply not only with the clients requirements, but also to latest British Standards (BS7671:2008(2011) Requirements for Electrical Installations, IET Wiring Regulations 17th Edition, Amendment No. 1 and BS7907:2011 Code of practice for temporary electrical systems for entertainment and related purposes), the panel provides the theatre with up to 200A via adjustable RCD protected Powerlock connectors, together with three phase CEE form sockets with switchable RCD’s. Along with this, the panel has an overall power meter with the facility for future remote energy monitoring.
The panel was installed over a weekend to fit in with the Hippodrome’s tight schedule and in time for use on their current show, Oliver! – The Musical!
