High Tension Switchgear (LBS)

High Tension Switchgear (LBS)

This device is used to protect low and medium-voltage systems. It is commonly used in 11kV systems. For 630A, a load break switch (LBS) mechanism is offered, and an overcurrent protection strategy is implemented using an HRC fuse. The panel has three CT (current transformers) and three PT (potential transformers) for detecting system current and voltage. The HRC fuse protects against overload and short circuits. The panel also has three-ampere meters and one voltmeter with a selection switch.

The panel dimension is 900 mm x 1000 mm x 1800 mm and weighs about 450 kg. The construction is metal clad and employs high grade steel of suitable thickness to provide safety and security.

Key feature
