Published date: 19 September 2019

Issue:
Can there be top entry or top exit on NEMA 3R HVL/cc switchgear.  This is for an OEM account.

Product Line:
HVL Switchgear.

Environment:
Products sold in the United States.

Cause:
Product features.

Resolution:
No, there cannot be TOP entry or top exit on NEMA 3R HVL/cc switchgear.

The options to resolve this are rear entry/exit with the use of optional rear extensions.

Also, Side entry or exit can be done with the addition of an incoming/outgoing terminal chamber.

The roof design of the N3R HVL/cc is not compatible with entering conduits. In addition, the conduits would enter directly over the switch terminals. The HVL/cc has reduced clearances and should not have any moisture dropping down on top of the switch.
