SAR Controls- now part of the Mobile Electrics group of companies but still the same outstanding quality and service that built their reputation.


Recently, with the assistance of Mobile Electrics, Cummins Filtration Australia installed 155 of the 165 W Aqualuma High Bay LED lights in its Kilsyth factory, replacing all the 400 W Metal Helide Lights and thus reducing its power usage. 
The selection of lights was made easy after spending 18 months finding an application that would meet or exceed our corporate requirements. 
The Aqualuma does both and performance of the lights has to be seen to be believed. The VEET Certificate rebate made the deal even sweeter. 
"Lights are too bright at night" is one of the comments received. "They do not attract moths" is another. 
The ability to switch on and off at a blink of an eye is also advantageous, especially coupled with a C-BUS system that is partially controlled via light sensors. 
The supplier of the lights was beyond helpful and he kept true to his word. The lights are fantastic and have made a remarkable difference in our plant. 
Coupled with the Electrical company in Mobile Electrics who both installed the lights and the C-Bus system (completed earlier) we are very happy with both suppliers and the speed in which this project was implemented and completed.

Water Treatment Plant at Bosch, Clayton

Mobile Electrics were recently awarded the contract to carry out an electrical and automation project at the Bosch facility in Clayton. The project required decommissioning their existing underground water treatment plant and to replicate the system above ground. This was required to minimise any potential contamination issues that may arise, due to having the system below ground. Prior to treated waste water being discharged, PH levels must be returned to a neutral condition. Incoming waste water PH levels are monitored and modified continuously by sophisticated automation equipment. By the controlled addition of neutralising fluids, a neutral PH level can be achieved. 

Mobile Electrics were commissioned to design and construct the control system, and carry out the installation of the new facility including level sensors, PH sensors, motors and process control units to provide a complete operating system. The project is in the final stages of installation, and should be completed and commissioned and ready for operation in the near future. This is an important part of Bosch's Clayton operations and Mobile Electrics are proud to be involved with an environmentally sustainable project.
