EVA Testing-Story

EVA Testing-Story

EVA-Engineered Versatile Assembly 

Indoor: IP42 

Indoor: IP66 


Bovara recognizes the importance of a dynamic switchboard platform and the enormous benefits of it, and hence Bovara developed the EVA. Tested and compliant for IEC 61439 and AS/NZ 61439 standards, EVA is capable of handling heavy duty current loads up to 2500 Amps both in Weatherproof and indoor categories.   

Tests include: 

Mechanical strength, Degree of protection, Protective testing for electrical shocks & faults, Temperature rise, UV Protection, etc. 

Advantages of EVA platform to the customers and manufacturers: 

An algorithmic approach to space optimized design of modular switchboards 


It is important to understand the need for optimally designing any switchboard before proceeding with doing the same. Typically, Switchboards are erected in enclosed spaces which may house other equipment’s too. 

As the room dimensions are fixed, it becomes important to minimize the space occupied by the switchboards, so that they can be placed in the room easily. This case becomes an even greater concern when switchboards must be placed in already existing rooms that are partly occupied. 

Often, the Switchboards are placed on first or higher floor of a building and have bottom entry cables. Thus, floor cut-outs have to be made in advance to terminate the cable connecting the load at the switchboard end. 

Since, civil activities like sizing a building, determining the strength of foundation, thickness of floors and dimensions of floor cut-outs are done much before the switchboard is manufactured, hence, it becomes imperative to know the size and weight details of the switchboards beforehand. 

Weight being proportional to the size, is also reduced. This has cascading effects as; lower weight implies lower transportation cost, lower freight insurance and handling charges and lower cost of erection. 

Switchboards are passive devices and dissipate considerable amount of heat. Once the switchboards are designed, it becomes possible to determine the rate of heat generation. This data is useful for planning the air conditioning and ventilation systems.
