Electrical Engineering & LV Assemblies

As the Assembly Manufacture division gained experience and the product range broadened to include both standard assemblies and more specialised designs, it became the major component of the business. While the knowledge and experience gained by being involved in sitework is still used in our engineering process, the Site installation section was closed to allow more focus on the design and engineering involved in producing quality assemblies. This decision improved the relationship with our customers in that we were no longer competing against some of our valued clients, but rather providing them with better assemblies for their site and control installation projects. Merlin has over the years become a specialised assembly manufacturing company with various certifications and type-testing done. Merlin was the first company to qualify for the IEC61439-1 certification in South Africa.   Currently, Merlin Engineering offers a full package of value-added engineering, from initial design and technical drawings through to the completed assembly manufacture. Each project is approached and designed specifically for its particular requirements including commissioning if required.

1)    Heating, ventalation and airconditioning (HVAC) panels. 

With a strong background in HVAC related building services, Merlin Engineering manufactures DB’s ranging from single fan starter panels to complex chilled water motor control panels for central airconditioning plants for industrial, commercial and hospital applications.

 2)    Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) 

Merlin Engineering works with a number of OEMs in engineering specifically designed panels for their own equipment. These designs are handed over to the manufacturer to form part of their product range and panels are built as required.  This suits the OEM’s in that the prices are competitive and it excludes the engineering costs normally associated to this type of work. Merlin supports the supplied equipment throughout South Africa and carries stock of comon components that may be required for maintenance and repairs. Telephonic support is extended to their technical staff throughout the warranty period and mantainence visits.  

3)   Automation 

Having previously been a systems intergrator for PLC systems, Merlin continues to build PLC and plant automation panels. We now work with a number of system intergrators to provide control panels and motor control centres for plant automation.  Merlin’s scope often includes the motor control and panel designs, with the SI providing the design/drawings for the PLC cabinets.  

4)   Pump stations and water treatment

Merlin Engineering designs and manufactures assemblies from remote pump starters to the more complex controls including a number of pumps with soft starters and variable speed drives. The motor control panels used in this application are designed to withstand the tough enviroment and corrosive conditions.  

5)   Cathodic Protection 

Due to the remote location of the DC control and power supply units used for cathodic protection of pipelines, Merlin Engineering designs these panels using modular type functional units which allows maintenance and repair work to be done without using a single supplier for proprietry equipment or control cards.
