This Siemens 480 Volt Switchgear lineup is considered a standard medium voltage level for many commercial and industrial electrical systems.
The Medium Voltage Switchgear includes circuit breakers, switches, fuses, and protective relays, designed to control, protect, and isolate electrical circuits and equipment. In this case, the switchgear operates at 480V.
The Switchgear Mains refers to the primary circuits or busbars within the switchgear responsible for receiving electrical power from the external source, such as a utility grid or a generator.
The mains control the main supply of electricity into the switchgear. The Switchgear Feeders are secondary circuits connected to the mains and are responsible for distributing power from the mains to various loads or downstream circuits.
They ensure power is delivered to different parts of the facility or equipment.
Feeder switchgear design is based on the specific requirements of the loads it serves and is typically rated for lower currents and voltages than the main switchgear.
