Advance is the first ANSI switchgear with a completely innovative modular, bolted design. Advance metal-clad switchgear offers increased reliability and improved safety. Flexibility of engineering is based on a truly modular concept with many product variations, configurations, and options.
Advance metal-clad switchgear meets or exceeds the requirements of ANSI C37.20.2 and has been seismically tested to IBC Region D, Ip1.5. Enclosures meeting the outdoor requirements of ANSI C37.20.2 are available in either walk-in (sheltered aisle), or non-walk-in configurations. Forced air cooling is also available for 4000 A applications up to 15 kV.
Advance utilizes the ADVAC spring charge mechanism breaker or the AMVAC magnetically actuated breaker. These breakers have the lowest total cost of ownership due to extremely low maintenance requirements and are the easiest breakers to maintain in the industry.
Quality is assured by extensive design and production tests, coupled with manufacturing in facilities that have been certified in compliance with ISO 9001.
- Enhanced safety for personnel and equipment
- ABB ADVAC and AMVAC breakers are the easiest to maintain in the industry
- Design allows for flexibility in configurations
