Speech Title and Abstract

Digital Switchgear

    Used to distribute electrical energy with electrical devices to control, protect and isolate electrical equipment, switchgear has been a key element in electrical networks for more than 100 years. In a switchgear various components such as protection relays and circuit breakers must work together flawlessly.

    Digital switchgear combine proven technologies with digital components and software solutions to enhance safety, reduce installation cost while significantly reduce space needed and optimize operational cost while constantly detecting condition and maintenance needs.

    By using multiple sensors to measure temperature and humidity, and by monitoring utilization and operating cycles of electrical devices, a digital switchgear can monitor its own health and indicate when conditions change. That way it can predict potential failures before they occur or alert when maintenance is needed, avoiding costly or unnecessary downtime.

    Combine with condition monitoring solutions collect, analyze and visualize various data to provide valuable process insights. Most of our low-voltage and medium-voltage switchgear are available in digital versions.
