Single-sided Padmount 5 Way Switchgear Products

Innovative Switchgear’s solid-dielectric-in-air single-sided and double-sided padmount switches and fault interrupters are compact, replicate the size and shape of old air-filled, oil-filled and SF6-filled switchgear, and yet contain no oil and no SF6. We also replicate the bushing patterns and bushing heights of older equipment to make replacement even easier. Our padmount switchgear features our visible open isolation point which is visible from a safe working distance. Our units come fully factory assembled, and provide thousands of maintenance-free load-break operations. In addition, our units are operated by a single handle, are modular in shape and can feature up to six ways in a single unit. Our switchgear is available in 12.5 kA, 16 kA and 20 kA, and is suitable for 4kV – 27kV applications. Each unit, including the tank and the high voltage enclosure, is constructed of 304 stainless steel, and is sealed and dead-front. Our switch tanks are submersible and fully-sealed, and not subject to moisture intrusion. It is the ideal solution for harsh environments, extreme weather and coastal applications. All padmount switchgear is available with a variety of over-current protection and communications solutions.
