TCS Services

Delivery & Installation

Delivery of all panels is undertaken by specialists who know our exacting requirements. If we are installing the panel, we will be there on site to supervise the unloading and positioning of the panel(s).

Since our team is factory trained in the installation of all the products we supply, there is no better team to supervise and install the equipment for you.

Typical installation includes:

  1. Locating and leveling the panel on it’s foundations, so busbars and doors are not misaligned.
  2. Joining busbars with fishplates and tightening all fishplates with torque wrench.
  3. Connecting all inter-panel wires to adjacent transport unit terminals.
  4. Checking alignment and interlocking of all doors.
  5. Ensuring all doors are closed firmly to prevent ingress of dust.

Commissioning & Testing

It is recommended that commissioning of the installed assemblies is carried out by TCS’s own engineers wherever possible. Our highly skilled personnel are familiar with all aspects of the TCS product range from small conventional wall mounted control panels to major intelligent motor control centres.

Working to pre-prepared commissioning plans and method statements, TCS can provide the correct personnel to commission every aspect of any assembly and the connected plant and equipment, providing the client with the finished operational plant working to his requirements.

Full documentation is provided at each stage of commissioning recording all settings calibrations and test result. This information then forms part of the final operation and maintenance manuals provided for each contract.

All testing carried out on assemblies is carried out to approved quality plans and address every requirement of BS EN 61439-2.

A full site certification pack is assembled and incorporated into the Operations and Maintenance Manual, this comprising:

  1. Power-frequency withstand voltage (Flash Test) certificate for busbars issued if appropriate.
  2. Insulation test results.
  3. Verification of busbar joint efficiency (Ductor Test) results.


We can tailor a service package across our product range to meet the most exacting requirements. We will provide you with a maintenance schedule, records of site attendance and work carried out, and an end of year maintenance report.

  1. improve productivity
  2. increase asset life
  3. reduce maintenance costs
  4. improve safety and loss prevention
  1. Carry out service to standard schedule, and report defective or failing equipment (Parts not included).
  2. Carry out service to standard schedule and replace defective or failing equipment (Parts not included).
  3. Annual service inspection, reporting recommendations.

We assign the same technicians to a service contract so they quickly become familiar with your plant enabling quicker fault finding and reduced downtime.

3D Design / BIM

3D BIM dimension (The shared information model)

3D BIM is arguably the most popular BIM dimension that all construction companies are familiar with. It is also referred to as a coordinated model.

3D represents the 3-dimensional geographical structures of a building – that is the X-axis, the Y-axis, and the Z-axis of a building. 3D BIM entails the creation of graphical and non-graphical building information for the sole purpose of sharing it in a common data environment (CDE).

TCS are happy to offer client 3D design services on request.

Arc Flash System

TCS are happy to offer solution for compliance with Arc flash requirements of IEC TS 63107:2020 (Integration of internal arc-fault mitigation systems) or the pending expected options to be released in BS EN 61439-2 (ed 3) when it’s expected to be launched in Y2022.

Our primary offering include options for insulated busbars, arc detecting systems (using point sensors and fibre optics) and/or arc quenching solutions. The final offering is tailored to the clients assessments regards personnel safety and what level of hardware protection is best suited to the application.
IEC 61439-2

Profibus Design and Installation

TCS has a large number of certified Profibus engineers to support our clients in the correct design, installation and commissioning of Profibus PA/DP networks.

We also offer SIMOCODE device configuration and testing services for Siemens starters be they DOL, ASD, Soft starter or variable speed drive.

Amtech ProDesign Calculations

From initial design through to commissioning, right up to final completion, ProDesign’s many design options provide total control.

As the UK’s leading software providing full electrical design and calculations to BS 7671, ProDesign is a powerful tool TCS uses inhouse to assist clients when required in the overall discrimination and protection studies for projects.

Power Quality Solutions

TCS are happy to provide harmonic measurement, investigation and recommendation reports for site compliance and/or to meet specific targets on clients networks.

By investigating site loads (existing and new) it allows the client to control Harmonics and Improve Power Quality so providing the following benefits:

  1. Regulation compliance with Engineering recommendation G5/5
  2. The avoidance of overheating in cables, motors and transformers
  3. Eliminate nuisance tripping of circuit breakers and fuses
  4. Prevent damage to sensitive electronic equipment

Depending on the existing site loads (plus any proposed new non-linear loading) TCS can offer a range of harmonic limitation solutions to ensure the existing harmonic site levels are maintained or are reduced to comply with G5/5. Recommendations will include various scenarios including the consideration of both static & Active mitigation solutions.

Controlling the site PF can be achieved in a number of ways including traditional Power Factor Correction banks (with/without detuning), active filter technology or using VSD technology to both control motor loads and provide dynamic kVAR control (+/-) to the site.

The addition of Power Factor Correction equipment can result in reduced system currents and kW losses, as well as eliminating charges for excess kVAR consumption. Additional capacity may be released, avoiding the expense of a supply upgrade, or peak currents can be reduced resulting in improved supply security
