Relocatable Substations from Ampcontrol are power distribution solutions designed for use on mine sites, utility networks and industrial environments. The substations are suitable for powering heavy plant and machinery including draglines, shovels and drills.

Ampcontrol has developed a unique vent design that works faster and is strategically placed to safety arc vent fault pressure

As surface mobile switch rooms and electrical enclosures on mine sites are required to have protection mechanisms in the event of an arc fault situation.

Ampcontrol’s approach to arc venting stands out for its extensive type testing experiments that have produced comprehensive benchmarks

  • Enables faster assessment of enclosures and the size and placements of the vent required
  • Provides a more efficient and cost effective solution when retrofitting enclosures to ensure they meet compliance to AS/NZS 4871
  • Verifies compliance faster and enables onsite installation of the vent, compared with alternative solutions

To find out more about arc fault venting, including video footage of an onsite simulation where an enclosure was subjected to 22kA and 30kA arc faults with and without arc fault protection venting, conducted at Ampcontrol’s Mackay Service Hub demonstration, visit
