The Square D Services Plant Tour Van from Schneider Electric, designed as a rolling showroom for equipment and capabilities, will visit 33 locations across the United States in summer/fall 2008. The van has logged more than 120,000 miles since its 2005 debut and has been visited by more than 14,000 people at more than 1,300 sites nationwide. The van will travel primarily around the western and Southwestern United States between June and October 2008.

“[The Square D Services Plant Tour van] provides a convenient opportunity for such personnel to learn about products and serv-ices that can help update vintage or older equipment to modern technology and components, creating a safer, reliable and more cost-effective manufacturing environment,” said Mike Rice, vice president of services.

Rice noted that changes to the van for the 2008 schedule have been well-received by visitors. In addition to the life extension, equip-ment optimization and electrical safety solutions already displayed, new displays include a Square D Masterpact circuit breaker test unit; electronic board repair; enhancements to power monitoring solutions; and an electrical joint temperature monitoring system using spread-spectrum wireless with Modbus TCP communications.

The tour offers free seminars, such as arc flash facility safety requirements and equipment life extension options.
