Schneider Electric Launches Innovative Medium Voltage Switchgear in the U.S.

Gas-insulated switchgear with solid dielectric busbar for applications up to 38kV. Innovative design delivers a safe, low maintenance solution. Seamless installation without any gas handling

Schneider Electric, the global specialist in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, announced CBGS-0, an industry-leading gas-insulated switchgear with solid dielectric busbar for applications up to 38 kilovolts, 2,000 A and 31.5kA. Schneider Electric’s CBGS-0 is the latest addition to its portfolio of innovative medium voltage switchgear solutions.

CBGS-0 has been designed to meet the needs of indoor substations, which serve a vital purpose in the broader trend of urbanization and the growth of industry. This switchgear is meant for heavy industries: water and wastewater facilities, mining, chemical, petrochemical, utilities, wind farms, data centers and traction substations.

An Innovative and Safe Design

With operator safety top of mind, Schneider Electric’s CBGS-0 is designed to empower customers to improve operator safety, using a new standard in safety and innovation through a unique design concept. CBGS-0 includes a grounded and shielded solid insulated bus system, installed in the top rear part of the switchgear, outside the SF6†compartment – this means no gas handling is required during installation, expansions or section replacement. Shielded Solid insulation and sealed-for-life gas tank protect the medium voltage components from aggressive atmospheres, dirt, dust, and vermin. The materials used also inhibit oxidation in the busbar and circuit breaker compartments and provide for a stable gas system.

CBGS-0 is also designed to reduce maintenance and downtime, and maximize floor space. The compact and modular switchgear offers both flexibility and a long, low-maintenance service life, making it an ideal choice for those with limited space. The design of the modern switchgear equipment is significantly smaller than legacy models – reducing floor space by up to 60 percent.

A New Generation of Switchgear

In the fast-paced technology landscape, end users are under constant pressure to improve uptime while reducing both CAPEX project costs and recurring OPEX maintenance costs, yet many switchgear designs have remained stagnant for five decades. There’s often a strain on time, resources and budget to properly maintain equipment. Schneider Electric’s innovative equipment is maintenance-free for ten years, or 10,000 cycles.

“Our new generation of medium voltage switchgear includes evolutionary technologies that set a new standard for performance, dependability, and protection,” said†Emily Heitman, Vice President of Energy,†Canada†& U.S., Schneider Electric. “With CBGS-0 customers are getting equipment that can handle 27-38kV applications, and is incredibly easy to install, access and maintain.”†

Schneider Electric’s CBGS-0 is safer by design, a unique and innovative concept with lower total cost of ownership, and the optimal solution for a variety of applications.
