The new switchgear is engineered to improve uptime for data center, oil and gas, mining, utility, and other mission critical industrial applications. The new switchgear design allows access to the control switch and indicator lights located on the breaker secondary doors without opening the main breaker door. Eaton's two-part design allows the circuit breaker door to remain closed while accessing control wire, and retains the C37.20.7 arc-resistant rating during routine maintenance to simplify access to circuit breaker secondary terminals and reduce unplanned downtime. In compliance with NFPA 70E, and as defined by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) C37.20.7 standard, the arc-resistant low-voltage switchgear carries a hazard risk category of zero for circuit breaker operation with doors closed and latched.
