LV Feeder Pillars

Lucy Westminster Retractable Feeder Pillars

Westminster Feeder Pillar

Feeder Pillar Shells & Ranges

T&D supply both standard and bespoke feeder pillars in a selection of materials, paint finishes and dimensions to meet all indoor and exterior power distribution, control and lighting requirements up to 1,000 volts with IP65 door seal – this includes LV substation and network pillars with DNO supply cut-outs for utility applications.

The wide range of Lucy Zodion pillars include mini, slimline, single-door and double-door types available in galvanised mild and stainless steel.

Feeder pillars provide LV electrical power connections for single units to larger complex developments in residential and commercial sectors with small pillars for unmetered electricity supply including isolation unit, cable earthing blocks and CET gland to suit armoured cables (SWA) – larger metering pillars can be designed ready to install on site or supplied as empty enclosures for building and modifying by the contractor.

Single or 3 phase pillars with individual or group switching and fusegear options (RCBO, RCD, MCB) provide safety and reliability of power supply up to 1600amp current with high security vandal resistant locks.

LV pillars or free standing panel boards are supplied to the M&E building services, utility substation, rail, renewable energy and hazardous area industries. Highways pillars are typically used for traffic signals, CCTV, motorway communications, telecommunications and street lighting power, control and distribution.

  • Substations
  • Street Lighting
  • Highways
  • Airports
  • Retail & Leisure
  • Car Park Lighting
  • Rail
  • Temporary Generator Power Hook Ups

Public & Street Lighting Supply Pillars

Hot-dip galvanised feeder pillars to the requirements of IEC60947 are available with HRC type fuses to control low voltage short circuits for 3 phase metered public lighting supply

Feeder Pillars

Feeder Pillars – when specifying a bespoke feeder pillar from pre-wired enclosures that are ready to install, to solutions that challenge convention to take a completely new form, we ensure your power distribution requirements are met.

LV Electrical Distribution Feeder Pillars

Here is a working example of a customised distribution pillar designed by Lucy Zodion working with Thorne & Derrick and the NHS (National Health Service) Trust in the UK – with IP65 protection for outdoor installation into concrete foundations the single and double door feeder pillars are designed to accept and terminate multi-core 3 & 4 core XLPE SWA LSF (or PVC) cables according to BS5467/BS6724. The low voltage electrical supply provided by the feeder pillar cabinets will enable the power distribution from the main LV switch panels and substations to the site electrical infrastructure.

Feeder Pillars

Here we have a further example of an pre-wired feeder pillar designed to provide electrical services (LVAC) for a new train care facility for Transpennine Express – the feeder pillar for outdoor location with IP65 ingress protection is constructed from 3mm thick galvanised steel with a detachable root section finished with coating of bitumen enriched paint. The backboard layout (treated exterior grade plywood) accommodates the 250A rated busbars with 3P+N switch disconnect and galvanised trunking to contain the incoming and outgoing armoured cables (BS5467 660V/1000V).

Feeder Pillars

Rail Feeder PillarsFeeder Pillars | Network Rail Approved

Network Rail approved GRP feeder pillars are non-conductive and available for permanent outdoor location in trackside or station installations eliminating risk of dangerous touch voltages in rail electrified areas. Corrosion resistant pillars can be equipped with PADS approved Network Rail equipment including:

  • DNO Service Heads
  • Isolation Transformers
  • Cut-Outs & Isolators
  • DC Immune RCD
  • Switchgear
  • CT Chamber & Meter

Pictured: Feeder Pillar Distribution Cabinet – here a size 30 (F30) pillar from the Lucy Fortress range (30/HDG/3) is shown with internal equipment (315A MEM Fuse Switch Disconnect) which would be mounted to an 18mm treated exterior grade plywood backboard – optional accessories including pillar heater, light, photocell and timed keyswitch.

The feeder pillars are double-door constructed using 3mm thick galvanised steel and two tri-head door locks for anti vandal protection – the pillar root section is detachable and finished with corrosion resistant bitumen enriched paint.

Feeder Pillars

Fortress Feeder Pillars

The Fortress range of feeder pillars manufactured by Lucy Zodion feature several innovative features with pillars available in a range of sizes (28), materials (galvanised steel, stainless steel, cast iron) and finishes with complete range of RAL colour options.

To prevent corrosion additional paint finishes (RAL and Highways G2A) are available with anti-vandal lock variants. The detachable feeder pillar roof enables replacement of the pillar backboard quick and simple by the electrical engineer and suitable to accommodate future power expansion of low voltage electricity distribution.

Enclosure ventilation can be controlled by the installation of anti-condensation heaters.

Feeder Pillar Cabinets For Low Voltage Power Distribution

Shown here is a typical electrical distribution pillar assembled to provide low voltage power to an Electrical Vehicle (EV) Charger – the 3 phase pillar is powered by the incoming DNO supply cable and connected via the cut-out and outgoing to the charger point via underground cable duct. All internal conductive components are bonded to earth and suitably rated RCD and MCB installed to protect the circuit during abnormal over load or fault conditions. Note, due to the presence of mains voltage electrical supply only qualified personnel should work on this type of equipment and wear appropriate PPE including arc flash protection clothing.

Testing Feeder Pillars

The Lucy Zodion range of feeder pillars are tested in-house prior to despatch to ensure their pre-wired powered pillars are in working order in accordance with the clients specification and requirements.

Note: All feeder pillars may contain accessible live electrical equipment or parts even when the Lucy Zodion pillars are de-energised or disconnected – these can include DNO power supply and secondary power supply (generator or UPS).
