Arc Resistant & Metal Clad Switchgear

The increasing use of higher voltages for electrical distribution and application in both industrial and commercial applications places additional requirements on the switchgear which is installed in these facilities. Global changes in the business environment mandate that industrial & commercial facilities become both safer and more reliable than they already are and that expansions and modifications to the switchgear in these facilities be performed in less time, and on increasingly tight budgets. To meet all of these requirements, EnerCube offers the Arc Resistant and Metal Clad Switchgear product line. This modern equipment is available in all industry standard ratings to meet the vast majority of applications. Additionally, a variety of special ratings are available to meet virtually any applications.

Switchgear Information

 

FINISH

High quality and superior paint finish as per IEEE standards and color specifications from customer.

MODULAR PLENUM DESIGN

Quick installation, easy access and site-specific designs available. Arc Flow study can be done for complex requirements.

INTERCONNECTION WIREWAY

Easily accessible wire ways carry the LV interconnection cables between the switchgear cells and MCCs.

PT SECTION

The main bus compartment is a separate enclosed space for 3-phase insulated main power bus bars, supports, and connections to circuit breaker cells. The racking mechanism provides controlled and smooth movement of the PT from the disconnected position to the test and connected positions within the cell. 


CONSTRUCTION

The gear offers flexibility in locating the various elements of the gear, including the circuit breaker, auxiliary and metering cells, within the structure layout. Circuit breakers may be located in either upper or lower cell positions, up to the maximum main bus self-cooled limit of the equipment (approximately 4000 Amperes).

BREAKER SECTION

Hinged front door, inter-compartment & inter-unit harriers, stationary primary disconnects, racking mechanism, interlocking devices, primary shutters, draw out guide rails and secondary control circuit connectors. Provisions are provided for instruments and relays, control wiring , terminal blocks, current transformers, and secondary control circuit cutouts .


CONTROL SECTION

All secondary and control wiring is connected to terminal blocks. Terminal block numbering strips are provided to identify each point, and several styles of wire tagging systems are also available as options. Secondary and control wire is No. 14 AWG, extra-flexible, standard wire, insulated for 6OO volts, and rated for a minimum of 90 degrees C. Insulated barrel, crimp-type terminals are used for most applications and grounded metal wire troughs are used in some custom applications.

Superior & Reliable

EnerCube’s Medium Voltage Switchgear is designed to fully incorporate the latest developments in medium voltage circuit breaker technology . Our Switchgear is designed , tested and constructed to comply with the latest requirements of ANSI as well as the applicable standards of IEEE, NEMA and National Electric Code (NEC) standards.

Designed For Safety

The design of Enercube’s switchgear incorporates maximum isolation. This means the complete enclosure of all live parts and positive segregation of primary circuits to stop the spread of faults to other sections of the device. Hinged doors or removable plates permit easy access to all compartments. All metal barriers are suitably grounded. Steel barriers extend the full height and depth of each vertical section for isolating adjacent sections. Each cubicle is equipped with a continuous copper ground bus which extends throughout the entire switchgear lineup.
