Switchgear

ANSI Digital Switchgear continuously self-supervises.

ANSI Digital Switchgear continuously self-supervises.

Instead of conventional current transformers and potential transformers, ReliaGear-® ND Digital Switchgear incorporates current sensors, which do not saturate, and voltage sensors in place of voltage transformers. Using sensors enables voltage and current measurement to be performed using low energy analog inputs, so working within low voltage cabinet is safer for personnel. Metal-clad, 15 kV,...
