What are the types of electrical switchgear?2024-01-04

Most applications require either low voltage switchgear or medium voltage switchgear.
Low voltage switchgear is used across multiple industries such as healthcare, industrial buildings, and water/wastewater to regulate systems up to 1 kilovolt. Depending on your facility’s specifications, you can incorporate different product features, including:

  • Arc-resistance
  • Front access
  • Space-saving design

Indoor and outdoor systems up to 75 kilovolts use medium voltage switchgear. Since applications and budgets vary, medium voltage equipment comes in three insulating technology options:

  • Gas-insulated switchgear
  • Air-insulated switchgear
  • Shielded solid switchgear

Insulators protect the components within the switchgear and often provide a cooling function.
