EPD is an Electrical Systems Integrator providing electrical controls for a wide variety of industrial applications including the marine, drilling, mining, petrochemical, steel, paper, plastics, dredging, and solar & wind energy sectors. We provide a full range of equipment and services with an emphasis on total automation and systems integration. Our first class engineering and management personnel provide our customers with competitive prices and a comprehensive service. We provide IEC or NEMA/ANSI equipment for a worldwide market in either low or medium voltage. We operate internationally and have a new 250,000 sq. ft facility in Houston. With over 25 years of extensive experience, an outstanding track record and worldwide support, you can trust EPD to deliver service on-time, within budget and to the highest possible standard. EPD can fulfill your requirements with an emphasis on customization and maximize end-user profitability while taking an integrated systems approach.
EPD can supply all of your control requirements. From pushbutton control panels to total plant automation utilizing PLC's and Touchscreen displays, we have the experience to provide the best controls for the customer’s needs.
Today's technological advancements have created almost unlimited possibilities for plant automation. With redundant and fault tolerant PLC's utilizing the latest in industrial communications, it is possible greatly minimize downtime while maximizing access to the processes. Internet options even allow control and diagnostic options via the internet. If desired, the customer can even get an e-mail should a problem occur.
• Motion Control Automation and Total Plant Automation Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC's)
• Control Stations • Human Machine Interfaces (HMI)
• SCADA systems
Drives are the cornerstone for EPD. We provide both AC and DC variable speed drives for all applications. Our approach uses standard products and customizes the packaging and control aspects to fit the customer's needs. This approach allows us to supply special AC & DC drive configurations. Custom cabinet designs allow us to supply a smaller, more dense, drive package if size constraints are an issue. We can also meet special environmental constraints, such as water cooled, air conditioned, dust tight, etc., so that the equipment will operate properly under the installed conditions.
• Low Voltage AC variable speed drives 690 volt AC and below
• Medium Voltage AC variable speed drives up to 6600 volt AC
• DC variable speed drives 750 volt DC and below
o 6RA70 85 amp field supply
Motors for all systems are available from EPD thanks to our close ties with several motor vendors. We can provide new or re-manufactured* motors of any size to complete your system. These relationships also provide us the ability to built and test large horsepower systems as well as medium voltage gear.
• AC motors new & re-manufactured all voltages
• DC motors new & re-manufactured all voltages
* Not all motors are available as re-manufactured.
EPD understands that there is more to transformers and reactors than just sizing. The proper application of transformers and reactors requires understanding of the installation environment as well as the entire power system, from the power source to the consumers. Application knowledge, such as using transformers and reactors for harmonic elimination in multiple motor installations, allows us to suggest the appropriate types of transformers and/or reactors to fit the customers needs.
o IEC or ANSI/NEMA
o Drive Isolation transformers
o Distribution transformers
o AC Line Reactors
o Phase Shifting Transformers and Reactors
With some existing systems it is more viable to retrofit the existing equipment rather than replace with new. EPD can retrofit any of the product types that we provide new, if it is possible. Our engineers will check the existing system and, through interaction with the customer, provide a retrofit solution.
In some cases, the retrofit equipment can be built at our facility as a kit, which is then installed in the field. When possible this eliminates costly downtime, allowing our customers to continue operating until the last possible minute. It also reduces the amount of time required to complete the upgrade
EPD understands that whether the power is utility supplied or locally generated, the switchgear is the first line of defense. From proper generator control to protection coordination, the switchgear is expected to keep the processes running and the equipment protected.
• Low & Medim Voltage
• IEC or ANSI/NEMA
• Distribution and incoming switchgear up to 34 kV
• Generator control and utility tie gear up to 15 kV
