The metal-enclosed load interrupter switchgear with a narrow design reduces the footprint of electrical distribution systems. Courtesy: EatonThe metal-enclosed load interrupter switchgear with a narrow design is engineered to reduce the footprint of electrical distribution systems in an environmentally friendly and compact design. It has an 18-inch wide structure with front-accessible cable terminations that is engineered to minimize space requirements. Additionally, the design incorporates fuses for accurate, calibrated short-circuit detecting and interrupting capabilities to support power reliability. The metal-enclosed load interrupter switch uses flicker blade and DE-ION arc chute technology, which is designed to prolong the life of the main blades by minimizing arcing between the main blades and the stationary contacts. The switchgear avoids the use of Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) gas that contributes to the greenhouse effect.
