Becker / SMC Power Control Rooms

The Becker/SMC Group (B/C) has been providing mining industry safety, automation and power distribution products for nearly 100 years. The company exports its products to over 50 countries worldwide. They specialized in the power distribution sector of the mining industry all over the world.

Cooperating with the mining industry is what they do best. They have a depth of experience in mining automation equipment and power distribution systems. They know that miners need to work safely and efficiently while keeping energy costs under control.

Power Distribution Systems (PDS) for mines feature power management, communication and control circuitry, protection circuits, and starting equipment. B/C capacitors are used in many of the PDS’s applications for voltage regulation and harmonic distortion reduction.

B/C products have a long history of reliability and performance. They go through rigorous quality control procedures and are built to exceptionally high standards.

The industrial environment is, in many ways, the perfect proving ground for B/C products. They must perform reliably for years in the harshest conditions imaginable with little or no maintenance at all. Capacitors with a high percentage of solid-anode design used in power distribution systems can operate indefinitely without maintenance or replacement.

B/C has been offering its fully compliant PDSs like the LT100A, LT100B (VAC) and LT100E for over a decade. Capacitors like these are designed to regulate the voltage levels for physical power applications and electrical energy distribution.  The B/C LT100s have been used in diverse industrial applications all over the world.

It is obvious that a mining company requires a safe and energy efficient power distribution system. The Becker/SMC Products Group (B/C) has a depth of experience in this regard, offering mining industry safety and power solutions for over 100 years. B/C offers the broadest range of capacitors in the market, including both solid-anode and grain-oriented titanate (GOT) designs for the high voltage needs of PDSs (power distribution systems).

This post was written by Justin Tidd, Director at For nearly a half a century, Becker Mining has been at the forefront of mining electrical companies. Becker/SMC is the industry’s leader in increasingly more sophisticated electrical control systems. Most of the major innovations, design features and specialized electrical components have been developed by Becker/SMC.
