The Automated Technology Group – a leading supplier of intelligent solutions for automation control, motor control and power distribution – has been awarded a partner licence by Schneider Electric to supply its highly successful range of Okken low voltage switchboards.

A complete range of modular switchboards for power distribution and motor control, Okken combines high performance with the ability to easily modify and upgrade compartments at any time, allowing the switchboard to be adaptable to site changes. Okken switchboards are fully type tested to the latest IEC standards and feature high levels of safety, efficiency and reliability. The withdrawable drawers have three positions – connected, test and disconnected – and feature a complete set of safety interlocks to guarantee safe operation and maintenance.

Explained Nigel Brookes, Group Sales Director for The Automated Technology Group, “We are delighted to be among only three Schneider partners in the UK to have been awarded a licence to supply Okken, allowing us to design and manufacture customised solutions to meet our clients’ requirements. Winning this licence,” continued Nigel Brookes, “clearly demonstrates the trust and confidence Schneider Electric places in the technical expertise and industrial experience of The Automated Technology Group.”
