What is Medium Voltage Switchgear?
Medium voltage switchgear provides electrical distribution, control, and protection across switchgear ratings between 1kV and 75kV. This includes common ratings of 5kV, 12kV, 15kV, 35kV and more. Medium voltage switchgear panels and components are used across both commercial and industrial applications, and usually utilize vacuum circuit breakers for circuit protection.
Of the types of medium voltage switchgear, air insulated switchgear has become a popular choice for a number of reasons, particularly safety and cost-effectiveness. By not using gas insulation, not only does it better protect you and your distribution system from danger, but it helps protect the environment as well. That being said, medium voltage switchgear can be installed indoors or outdoors, but like any switchgear, it must have the proper NEMA-rated enclosure to protect against weather, dust, and/or corrosion.
Get more out of your MV switchgear.
Medium voltage switchgear, also known as MV switchgear, should provide you with three things: effective protection, efficient distribution, and peace of mind. By choosing quality switchgear components to power your energy distribution system, you’ll benefit from a more cost-efficient electrical distribution, fewer short circuits, and long-term durability.
