ComAp warehouse closure 24th – 28th June

May 17th, 2019

IPU will be unable to place any orders for stock with ComAp between 24th – 30th June, as ComAp are implementing a new ERP system.

With this in mind, please try and place orders with us as soon as possible to avoid any disruption.

It is also likely we may encounter some teething problems during the first week of July but we will endeavour to get orders to you as quickly as possible.

Please call the team on 0121 511 0400 if you have any questions regarding orders/lead times.

 

While we have you here, are you aware of the changes to mains protection?

On 27th April, the new ENA connection standard G99 came into force. New connections can no longer be made using the long standing G59 recommendation. Sites commissioned after February 2018 will need to make the upgrade to G99. If you have a ComAp MainsPro installed on site, a software upgrade will ensure compliance. For other brands or older relays, a firmware update may be required. Please speak to IPU about your options to ensure compliance.

Sites commissioned before February 2018 are able to stay on G59, but must be compliant with the latest G59-3.4 to ensure Vector Shift is not used as a Loss of Mains. The National Grid have launched the Accelerated Loss of Mains Change Programme to assist with these upgrades and there is funding available. Learn more here.
