Littelfuse Startco offers complete reconditioning and upgrade services for electrical equipment used in underground and above-ground mines. We have extensive archives of original drawings and test reports for all custom equipment and protective relays manufactured by Startco Engineering since 1975. Even if custom equipment is from another manufacturer, we have the expertise in both design and manufacturing to bring that unit back to current standards and modern requirements. Littelfuse Startco has in-house expertise in protective relays, and as such, is able to test and program many different models commonly used.
In addition to bringing equipment back to original specifications, we are able to upgrade equipment to incorporate modern protection, controls, and communications. Drawing on our decades of experience, we can improve the safety of the rebuilt equipment through the use of arc-flash mitigation techniques, improved relay settings, relocation of high-voltage or high-current components, and by adding remote operation and control capabilities.
