KJ Provides sawmill with innovative E-House solution

In a world driven by technological innovation, the demand for efficient, compact, and turn-key solutions for power distribution is on the rise. In a remarkable testament to this trend, KJ Contracting and Controls has designed and supplied a fully integrated E-House using 20-foot shipping containers. This ingenious solution provides a wide range of benefits, including efficiency, versatility, and ease of deployment. In this blog post, we'll dive into the details of this turn-key solution that is poised to redefine power distribution in various industries.

A Compact Powerhouse: The E-House Concept

The Electrical House, or E-House, is a compact, self-contained unit designed to house and protect critical electrical and automation equipment. Traditionally, these units are deployed to house Motor Control Centers (MCCs), variable frequency drives (VFDs), and other control systems, providing a centralized and secure location for power distribution and control.

The Turn-Key Solution: What's Inside?

KJ Contracting and Controls fully integrated E-House is a comprehensive solution that combines all the necessary elements for efficient power distribution and control. Here's what you'll find inside:

  1. 22 Sections of Allen-Bradley 2100 MCC with Integrated Yaskawa VFDs: These sections house the motor control centers, a critical component in any power distribution system. With integrated Yaskawa Variable Frequency Drives, this setup allows for precise control and management of electric motors, resulting in enhanced operational efficiency.

  2. Controllogix PLC Cabinet: A ControlLogix Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is a key element for automation and control within the E-House. It provides the brains behind the operation, ensuring that all components work in harmony.                           

  3. Braking Resistors and Exhaust System: Braking resistors are essential for dissipating excess energy generated during the braking of motors. The exhaust system ensures proper ventilation and climate control within the E-House.                                                                                                             

  4. LED Lighting Package: Lighting plays a crucial role in ensuring that maintenance and operations within the E-House are safe and efficient. The LED lighting package not only provides superior illumination but also offers energy efficiency and durability.                                                                            

  5. Complete Pre-Wired System for Plug and Play Operation: One of the standout features of this solution is the pre-wired system. This means that the E-House is ready for plug-and-play operation, significantly reducing installation time and labor costs. It's a game-changer for businesses looking to streamline their processes.
