IEC Medium Voltage Switchgear
Eaton's medium voltage switchgear systems are based on the use of vacuum circuit-breakers combined with solid insulation material. This is an environmentally-friendly technology in comparison with the methods used by many other suppliers, which use SF6 as an insulation medium.
The UX is a global design that is certified to the latest IEC 62271 -100 and -200 standards. UX is a complete range up to 4000 A, 50 kA-3s short circuit withstand, and 50 kA-0.5s AFLR internal arc classification.
Combining advanced technology with proven engineering excellence, the xGear 12kV, 17.5kV and 24kV system provides the highest safety and reliability standards.
Eaton has a complete range of modular secondary switchgear solutions suitable for application in utility networks, commercial buildings, infrastructure projects, industrial applications and renewable energy plants. Compact designs use solid insulation instead of SF6 gas and are rated up to 24 kV. + Expand List
