Let’s break it down

Electricity can connect in two ways: single-phase (230-240 volts) or three-phase (400-415 volts). In a 3-phase system, three alternating currents with the same frequency combine to create three separate electric power waves. This setup ensures that the power supply never drops to zero, maintaining a constant and stable electric supply.

Empower your space with our licensed and insured electricians. We are specialists in 3-phase power installation and upgrades, from small fixes to large fit-outs.

Save Money, Preserve Energy

Higher Power Capacity

Especially good for industrial and commercial applications requiring large amounts of power.

Smoother Power Transmission

Less voltage drop over long distances, e.g. transmitting electricity from power stations to distribution networks.

Balanced Loads

Each phase carries equal power, reducing the risk of overloading and improving the overall system stability.

Better Performance for Motors

3-phase power is popular in industrial settings for powering electric motors because they have a higher power-to-weight ratio and provide smoother operation.

Cost Efficient

The initial installation cost of 3-phase systems might be higher, but the long-term operational costs are typically lower due to boosted energy efficiency.

Flexibility in Voltage

3-phase allows for selecting suitable voltages for specific applications.

Lower maintenance costs

3-phase power systems are typically more robust and reliable, reducing maintenance costs and preventing business downtime.

Improved safety

3-phase systems lower the risk of electrical shocks or fires, protecting employees, equipment, and property from damage or harm.
