Get your quote for a 480 Volt Panelboard Instantly

We will give you the formula to get the pricing you will pay at the bottom of this article

Why is it that when you request a quote for a 480 volt panel, it takes so long?

The answer is I don’t know. It does not make any sense. The electrical distributor should know their pricing if they sell panels everyday.

We can quote you a panel while you are still on the phone. For standard panels without any modifiactions, they will even ship immediately. The way we do this is because we stock the panelboards and the Circuit breakers. We do not need to check with the manufacture for availablity or confirm the jobsite. We do not need to make sure you get pricing in the terratory we are in. Also labor is built into the products and there is no need to caculate how long it will take to assemble.

You ask, how can you do this so quickly. I can’t even get pricing immediately for just a 50 foot piece of wire.  We do it by stocking only the Panelboards our customers want. If you need a custom panel with timers and service entrance or integrated panels, we can not help but the majority of panels are just standard manufactures panels Main Lug only or Main Breaker.

The largest panerls we stock are 800 amp.  Here are some secrets that you only can learn from experience and working with multiple manufactures.

Here are some facts the distributors do not want you to know.

I am speaking of industrial 480 volt panelboards

Did you know that your pricing is lower if you wait four to six weeks to get your panelboard?

Did you know that your price may be twice as high if you need delivery of the panels fast?

Did you know that price structure is different in different parts of the country?

Did you know that if you have the time to wait, you may be able to get a main Breaker and Panelboard for the price of just the circuit breaker

With the Internet, competition has become increasingly more competitive for electrical manufactures. With a google search, you can find hundreds of suppliers. Some of them are very trustworthy and some are downrite dishonest.

If you go to an authorized distributor or a Panelbuilder that is authorized to purchase the components direct, you will never need to wonder if all components are New, Current Series or Counterfeit. The distributor pays more than if they purchase from a non authorized source. So this will cost you but it is well worth the extra money to be safe and have the manufacture assist with the technical information if it comes up.

If you go to a surplus company, the Panels may be outdated or old or even used. If the product is new, you will get the same thing as from the authorized source with th exception that the warrantee will be backed by the company, not the manufacture. If you go to a OEM Panelboard Builder, the compnents will be current series and new. Different brands have different price structures. Squre D tends to be a little bit higher. The industrial I-Line panels are easier to assemble and to make changes due to their ingenuity.  Square D has been our choice because is saves us an hour or two to assemble.

We are not an authorized distributor but only stock new manufactures panelbioards and circuit breakers. We can supply the panels assembled or unassembled. (the manufacture charges more if they are unassembled. Their focus is to get their panels on the wall for all of the additional purchases or changes that may be need for the next 30 years.  Also most factories prefer to stick to one brand.

Here is an idea that will be extreemely close to cost for 480 volt panels

for a 480 Volt Square D Panel that will accept a maximum of 150 amp breakers will cost the following

For a panel that will hold 14- 3 pole 480 volt breakers, 3 Phase 4 Wire Main Lug Only. The panel with 2 three pole breakers up to 100 amps included  will cost $485.00. Every additional 3 pole breaker for 15 to 60 amps will cost $135.81 and 70 to 100 amp would be $184.83  Panelboard tyope is NF with Copper Buss

For an industrial Sq D I-Line 3 phase 4 wire panel (HCM) that will hold 14- breakers up to 250 Amp will cost $1000.00 including 2- 3 pole breakers up to 100 Amp (type FA)  Each additional breaker from 15 to 60 amp will cost $208.25.  70 to 100 amp $249.00. 125 to 150 amp will be $600.60 and 175 to225 will cost $630.74

 

We are very excited that we will now be supplying Panels we will be purchasing for PSI using ABB Components made 100% in the USA.  The cost will be the same a s Sq D I-line, but the panels are much easier and safe to use. The covers will be hinged seperately for the distribution and incoming sections so you will not need to dissamble the dead fronts, door or covers to work on them.  Also the distribution breakers all will have individual hinged covers for easy access. They will also be a little smaller.

 

JRL Will give you the customer supplort you deserve and ship immediately. As you can see the price structure is low and competitive to  waiting 6 weeks for delivery.

Our customers do not want to wait a week or more to get a quote to find out there will be another 4 to 6 weeks to deliver and what happens if the custome can not wait,.
