Paralleling Switchgear: The Ultimate in System Protection & Control
The main function of switchgear is to protect and distribute. Parallel or paralleling switchgear is no different. Used when you need to control multiple power sources or generators, paralleling switchgear is found across industrial and commercial applications, providing protection and control in case of power failures. They are mostly used in low or medium voltage situations, and like most electrical switchgear, they are versatile enough to be used either indoors (NEMA 1) or outdoors (NEMA 3R).
Why Choose Paralleling Switchgear?
When you need to power one or more generators, paralleling switchgear has many advantages, especially in emergency situations. First of all, it is extremely reliable; if one generator goes offline, the other can pick up the slack. Paralleling switchgear also allows you to perform maintenance on one power source while leaving the rest of the system unaffected, so you don’t have to sacrifice productivity or worry about power interruption. You can also benefit from the versatility of paralleling switchgear, as you can set up your generators to split the load simultaneously, or one generator can handle the whole load for a period, and then the second can take over, and so on. This puts less strain on the generators in the long run, saving you time and money in maintenance.
