LayerZero Power Systems Granted Utility Patent No. CA 2931911 for SafePanel Covers, Providing Increased Safety and Reliability for Mission-Critical Applications

LayerZero Power Systems (LayerZero®), a leading manufacturer of static transfer switches (STSs), power distribution units (PDUs), and mission-critical power panels, today announced that the Canadian Commissioner of Patents has granted a full utility patent (No. CA 2931911) for its SafePanel® covers.

SafePanel covers are designed with user-friendliness in mind. They are straightforward to install and remove, even with heavy gloves, without compromising on safety or reliability.

SafePanel covers feature a unique design that includes a body, a connector, and a gripping portion. The body has two parallel surfaces connected by a perimeter wall. A notch in the perimeter wall provides access to a fastener on the power panel. The connector has a perimeter wall that extends from the body to a distal end. Relief areas in the perimeter wall near the distal end allow for easy insertion and removal. A stop in the connector prevents it from being inserted too deeply.

This unique design provides a number of advantages, including:

  • Increased safety: SafePanel covers prevent accidental contact with live conductors and other energized components, reducing the risk of electrical accidents and injuries.
  • Improved reliability: SafePanel covers reduce the risk of electrical accidents and workplace injuries, which improves reliability for mission-critical applications.
  • Easy installation and removal: SafePanel covers are easy to install and remove, even with heavy gloves, making them ideal for use in environments where workers need to be able to access power distribution panels quickly and safely.

The new utility patent covers the design, manufacturing methods, operation, and assembly of the SafePanel covers. This provides LayerZero with broader protection for its innovative product and helps to ensure that SafePanel covers are the only choice for businesses and organizations that need to protect their critical infrastructure from electrical hazards.

SafePanel covers can be used in a variety of mission-critical applications, including:
