Introducing the latest innovation in our product portfolio, Utility Grade Arc-Resistant Switchgear. With its industry leading low-profile design, it works in existing switchgear rooms and with standard height outdoor systems.
Our robust utility grade metal-clad switchgear has been the standard of excellence in the industry for decades. Our arc-resistant (AR) design is no exception. The engineering team was challenged to provide an arc-resistant design that would offer a safer environment for workers, and minimize damage from the unlikely event of an arcing fault. The result, a proven Type 2C compliant arc-resistant metal-clad switchgear design that reflects the same design synergy and engineering excellence that shaped our reliable product offerings through the years.
Our arc-resistant switchgear is available in a wide range of ANSI ratings.
Our arc-resistant metal-clad switchgear design underwent thorough testing to demonstrate successful compliance with the ANSI accredited IEEE C37.20.7 for Type 2C arc-resistant switchgear. Type 2C testing specifies that arcing does not cause holes in the freely accessible front, sides, and rear of the enclosure or in the walls separating the compartment in which the arc is initiated from all adjacent compartments. The design was created to support both United States and Canadian customer requirements.
