Our underground distribution switchgear is engineered to IEEE and IEC standards, meeting the needs of your application while ensuring operator safety. With our comprehensive line, we can provide submersible underground switchgear for any padmount or vault application as part of systems rated up to 38kV with 900A continuous current.
Underground Switchgear for Greater Safety and Performance
Our underground distribution switchgear can be operated manually or within distribution automation solutions. Padmount switchgear provide easy access to cable connections and operating apparatus, while vault switchgear can be wall- or floor-mounted for underground installations with flexibility to the direction of incoming underground cable connections.
Designed and tested to IEEE and IEC standards, our switchgear are field-tested and proven, with many still in service after more than 60 years of operation. In 2012 we introduced SafeVu™, the first visible break in a solid dielectric that allows elbows to remain installed and eliminates the need for additional devices to achieve visible break.
Our extensive portfolio of underground distribution switchgear provides options for a wide range of applications and a variety of system configurations rated up to 38kV and 900A continuous current.
Our switchgear offer industry-leading solutions for a wide range of applications — including those that involve load switching, line sectionalizing, fault interruption or distribution automation to automate with motors or magnetic actuators.
Underground Switchgear and Cabinet Types
Explore our underground switchgear and cabinet solutions by type to find those best suited to your needs.
Our junction bars provide a compact, flexible solution for loop, tap, grounding, testing or sectionalizing applications up to 35kV, 900A continuous current. Multiple point junctions can be provided in a sectionalizing cabinet for padmount applications or with wall mounting provisions for installation in an electrical room or vault.
Our line of SF6 load break switchgear includes overhead linear puffer switchgear designed for operation on distribution systems rated up to 38kV, 900A continuous current and 40kA asymmetrical momentary current. Our best-in-class puffer switchgear are ideal for mission critical applications.
