Computer Wiring & Receptacles
Without the installation of an appropriately sized dedicated circuit and circuit breaker, your computers could draw too much current, causing wiring to overheat and insulation around the wires to breakdown or melt, possibly resulting in a fire. The professional technicians at Mauro Electric® can determine the needs of your equipment, preventing safety hazards and protecting your business’s equipment and data with the proper selection and installation of computer circuits.
The circuits in your circuit box are protected by breakers and distribute electricity throughout your business. A dedicated computer circuit has its own circuit breaker in your business’s electrical box. This circuit and breaker are intended for use with only your computer systems. No other appliances or electrical equipment will be plugged into or utilize energy from this circuit, making it “dedicated” to your computers. Dedicated computer circuits ensure your computers are able to access the energy they need without overloading your system, losing power, blowing a fuse, or tripping a breaker. If you are adding new heavy duty computer equipment or simply adding additional outlets, you need new dedicated circuits.
The benefits of dedicated computer circuits include:
Reduced “electrical noise” from other appliances on shared circuits that result in damaging surges and fluctuations in power.
Reduced risk of electrical fires.
