Arc-resistant switchgear

The HVL/cb metal-enclosed vacuum circuit breaker switchgear reduces maintenance costs while increasing the level of safety from arc flash events.

Courtesy: Schneider ElectricThe HVL/cb switchgear features the combination of a compact vacuum circuit breaker with an integrated load-disconnect switch. HVL/cb switchgear is engineered to incorporate an arc-resistant plenum that vents out the right or left of the switchgear. The compartmentalized design boosts safety by reducing unauthorized access to energized parts of the equipment. The HVL/cb switchgear offers reliability through the limited number of moving components that must be maintained. This reduces the operational expenditures of a facility and maximizes profit return for customers.
