Eaton’s arc-resistant switchgear Eaton’s arc-resistant switchgear is engineered to enhance operator safety, while the front-accessible design minimizes equipment footprint for utility, industrial, data center, institutional, hospital, and water and wastewater facilities. The front-accessible design enables the equipment to be installed against the wall. Eaton’s switchgear meets UL 1558 and ANSI C37.20.7 arc-resistant standards for personnel protection. Arc-resistant switchgear is engineered to protect personnel from dangerous arcing faults by redirecting or channeling the arc energy out the top of the gear. The switchgear is designed to protect the operator around the entire perimeter of the equipment.
