CircuitIQ was initially created to solve a problem we personally experienced and has since expanded into a complete solution to solve a number of power management challenges.
“We realized quickly that mapping circuits one by one was not a good solution…”
… so we created a solution that would not only locate multiple circuits at the same time but would also be 100% accurate regardless of the distance or site conditions. We value our customers time, energy and most importantly their safety!

🏫 Code Update & Solution Introduction- Discover How CircuitIQ Transforms School Electrical Systems 🏫
In the realm of electrical systems, conscientious adherence to safety regulations is a cornerstone of effective management. As an industry expert, I lead the way in demonstrating compliance with and understanding of the Canadian Electrical Code, particularly Section Two. This section has seen a significant amendment aimed at enhancing safety through the precise identification of feeder and branch circuits within distribution panels. This meticulous labeling is not just about compliance; it's a proactive step to ensure safety and efficiency in electrical systems. Adopting these practices ensures any modifications, additions, or subtractions to the systems are thoroughly documented, enhancing traceability and safety. The introduction of innovative technology has revolutionized the approach to labeling and tracking electrical systems. The digitalization of panel identification eases the process, transcending the outdated manual methods. This advancement simplifies the identification and maintenance of each circuit, readily updating information in real-time and improving overall operational dynamics. Such innovations not only contribute to a safer work environment but also promote cost efficiencies by ensuring a balanced electrical panel, which in turn can lead to energy savings and reduced maintenance expenses.
In maintaining electrical safety and clarity within the industry, it's crucial to address updates and modifications to regulatory codes. Recent amendments to Section Two of the Canadian Electrical Code underscore the importance of clearly identifying circuit breakers or fuses at distribution panels. While this requirement has been longstanding, compliance has been uneven. To ensure clear identification of what each branch circuit powers, when any additions, removals, or alterations are made to an existing panel board, markings must be systematically updated. The introduction of these updates serves as a firm reminder of the proactive measures necessary for safety and efficiency in electrical work. Moreover, these changes align with one of the few retroactive rules in the Canadian code, emphasizing the need for compliance even if modifications to the panel weren't part of the original scope of work. Ensuring that these updates are applied correctly will contribute to higher standards in the electrical industry.
In the realm of electrical work, the precision with which we identify and map circuits is paramount. Traditional circuit tracers have been invaluable for locating where a plug sends electricity, typically using a transmitter-receiver pair to trace individual plugs. These devices serve well for singular situations, but they're not as efficient when you're faced with the daunting task of tracing multiple sockets, especially in larger spaces such as entire rooms or buildings. Conversely, a more advanced solution offers the capability to tackle extensive properties effortlessly. With this method, there's no limit to the number of connections you can map in one comprehensive sweep. Imagine the convenience of an app that could organize and store all of your electrical mapping data. This revolutionary approach not only houses your electrical information but also empowers you with the tools to manage and update your digital circuit directories seamlessly. Through this, overload prevention and load capacity assessments become a straightforward task. Additionally, during renovations and routine maintenance, the need for accurate labeling is crucial for safety and efficiency. This system simplifies the labeling process with automatic generation, negating the possibility of mislabeled or unlabeled outlets which can lead to unnecessary risks and time loss.
