      White Paper: Switchgear Survival Guide - Ten Tips to Optimize Switchgear and Enhance Reliability


      With increasing dependence on computers and automated processes, most modern facilities cannot afford downtime. Performing proper maintenance on a facility’s electrical equipment can reduce the risk of an unplanned outage and help extend useful life of the asset. In today’s economy, budget constraints on capital improvement projects will mean more reliance on existing equipment maintenance. Learn More

      White Paper: Enhancing Reliability of Legacy Systems with New Generation Low-Voltage Circuit Breaker Upgrades


      Even the best maintained equipment is subject to two key phenomena: (1) Equipment ultimately degrades and reaches the end of its useful life, no matter how much maintenance is performed, and (2) Advances in technology – both in material sciences and microprocessor based controls – facilitate the production of more modern circuit breakers with better performance, reduced maintenance requirements and on-board diagnostics, to name a few features. With the advancements in the design of the new circuit breakers, circuit breakers with older technology are no longer considered sustainable solutions. Learn More

      White Paper: Prolongue a Vida Útil do Painel de Distribuição Existente


      Painéis elétricos de distribuição e controle têm dois tipos de componentes que compõem o sistema, que podem ser chamados de passivos e ativos. Os componentes passivos incluem itens como perfilados de aço em forma de canal, tampas de fechamento, barreiras, estruturas de barramento vertical e horizontal, bem como os componentes que compõem a estrutura mecânica do equipamento. Os componentes ativos críticos são os disjuntores de potência ou fusíveis que compõem o sistema de proteção de sobrecorrente. Saiba mais

      Hope Creek Generating Station


      The circuit breakers at this 1,219 MW nuclear power plant had been in use since the facility opened in 1986. After carefully evaluating all options, including whether to refurbish the existing circuit breakers or opt for a total replacement, facilities management secured approvals for modernizing the existing switchgear with Masterpact NW direct replacement circuit breakers.

      Circuit Breaker Retrofill Project Modernizes Electrical Distribution for Automobile Manufacturer


      The plant’s two primary switchgear lineups were installed in the early 1950s. Though they were still operational, the age of the circuit breakers connected to the 2,000 amp bus in both lineups, along with the elevator-like system used to remove them from the switchgear for maintenance,increased risk for the plant’s electricians.
