The metal clad Medium Voltage switchgears have all segregated functional units and ensure the greatest degree of protection and service continuity
The metal-clad Medium Voltage switchgears are characterized by having the components of each functional unit arranged into cubicles that are separated by metallic segregations.
These MV switchgears can:
- Be isolated in the air
- Be isolated sulfur hexafluoride (SF6)
- Be designed to withstand an internal arc
It represents the more complete technical solution in terms of continuity of operations and personnel safety, as it offers a greater degree of protection against the spread of the effects of internal faults, both inside and outside of the structure.
