Small Power electrical equipment such as sockets circuits, spurs and lighting circuits provide the electrical network for all of the unfixed devices, products and appliances for a working environment such as offices.
This equipment can include items such as desktop PCs, laptops, monitors, printers, and copiers. The charging of work and personal portable devices, including phones and tablets, also falls within this definition.
Collectively, small power electrical equipment can typically account for 15% of the total electricity used in an office building. Using and charging electrical items also generates heat, which will contribute to the building cooling and ventilation requirements.
Having specifications in place for the small power electrical equipment will not only help efficiency but also energy management.
