Medium-Voltage Padmount Switchgear for Outdoor Installations

ABB has released the VersaPad, a new medium-voltage metal-enclosed switching product suitable for outdoor installations.

With safety as the number-one priority, the VersaPad has been designed using a dead-front enclosure where all energized components are enclosed within an inner grounded steel compartment, providing electrical isolation and protection from contamination.

The VersaPad uses the ABB VersaRupter arc-extinguishing switch as the main component, bringing to the customer a field-proven switch applied worldwide with millions of units in service.

The industry-standard footprint allows easy one-to-one replacement of field existing units, providing an alternative to the current market offer without changing the pad, cables or incurring in additional costs for retrofitting or adapting existing installations.
