Following the successful launch of the APS DB Ultimate, APS Industrial are pleased to release the second range within the ‘DB’ family, the APS DB Essential.

Consistent throughout the ‘DB’ family of distribution boards, the newly released DB Essential is custom designed for the demands of Australian industry and purpose built for compatibility with Siemens circuit breakers.

The DB Essential has been developed as a quality lightweight distribution board for high end commercial and medium duty industrial environments.

The enclosure by KATKO is a fully welded construction and meets the highest IK rating against external mechanical impacts whilst maintaining an IP55 ingress rating.

Together these ratings make this range of distribution boards ideal for indoor and outdoor applications typically seen in office, retail, hotel warehouse and distribution applications.

While the DB Essential does not offer a removable gear tray (as featured in the DB Ultimate), the DB Essential does offer significant flexibility in equipment options thanks to careful design considerations and a range of features:

– IP55/IK10 KATKO Enclosure
– Dual Quarter-Turn Locking System
– Removeable Hinged Escutcheon and Door
– Continuous Poured Door Seal
– Galvanised Gear Plate
– Dual Earth Neutral Bars
– Removeable Gland Plate (Top)
