Our distribution switchgear is engineered to industry standards, meeting the needs of your application while ensuring operator safety. With our comprehensive line, we can provide switchgear for any padmount or vault application with ratings for primary substation and secondary distribution.
Switchgear for Greater Safety and Performance
Our switchgear can be operated manually or within distribution automation solutions. Padmount switchgear provides easy access to cable connections and operating apparatus, while vault switchgear can be wall- or floor-mounted for underground installations with flexibility to the direction of incoming underground cable connections.
Designed and tested to industry standards, our switchgear are field-tested and proven, with many still in service after more than 60 years of operation. In 2012 we introduced SafeVu™, the first visible break in a solid dielectric that allows elbows to remain installed and eliminates the need for additional devices to achieve visible break.
Our extensive portfolio of switchgear provides options for a wide range of applications and a variety of system configurations and a variety of ratings. Our G&W Electric designed mechanisms are tested to industry standards by our in-house experts.
Our switchgear offers industry-leading solutions for a wide range of applications — including those that involve load switching, line sectionalizing, fault interruption, substation and distribution automation to automate with motors or magnetic actuators.
Switchgear and Cabinet Types
Explore our switchgear and cabinet solutions by type to find those best suited to your needs.
Our line of gas insulated switchgear is available with load break and/or fault interrupters and is designed and tested to IEEE standards. It’s ideal for harsh environments where submersibility is required for operation on distribution systems rated up to 38kV, 900A continuous current and 40kA asymmetrical momentary current. Our best-in-class puffer switchgear are ideal for mission critical applications.
Our junction bars provide a compact, flexible solution for loop, tap, grounding, testing or sectionalizing applications up to 35kV, 900A continuous current and are designed and tested to IEEE standards. Multiple point junctions can be provided in a sectionalizing cabinet for padmount applications or with wall mounting provisions for installation in an electrical room or vault.
