  • VFI sectionalizing capabilities deliver superior system protection
  • Slashes installation costs, complexity and space requirements compared to separate single-phase transformer and switchgear installs
  • Helps improve SAIDI and SAIFI metrics
  • Utilizes industry-standard protection schemes to deliver unparalleled transformer overcurrent and fault protection
  • Provides ease of use with resettable breaker operation, programmability and coordination with upstream and downstream protection devices
  • Offers safety and security with deadfront construction, coupled with aesthetically pleasing, low-profile Shrubline (ANSI Type-2) design
  • Meets or exceeds industry standards including ANSI, NEMA and DOE Energy Efficiency

Decrease the duration and scope of outages

The VFI transformer is capable of isolating faults up to 50% faster than conventional fused equipment — and can cut the number of affected customers in half. By dramatically reducing downtime, the VFI helps utilities enhance customer satisfaction.

Get more protection in less space

Only Eaton combines a transformer and sectionalizer in the smallest possible footprint, providing unparalleled reliability for underground systems with faster installation at a lower overall cost.

One solution, multiple applications

The VFI transformer easily coordinates with upline and downline protective devices as system changes occur. Use to tap off a main underground feeder; in place of a three-way junction cable; to sectionalize points on a long or densely loaded feeder; in high potential cable failure areas; and as a tie point between two systems.
