    CBGS-0

    Gas-insulated switchgear with solid dielectric busbar for applications up to 38kV.

    CBGS-0 consists of several functional modules. Each unit consists of a busbar compartment, main compartment (SF6 insulated), MV cable compartment, and LV cabinet. Much like Schneider Electric's other offerings, no maintenance is required in the main compartment and the busbar system allows for seamless installation without any gas handling.

      Benefits

      Maximum safety in a reduced space.
      • Continuity of service: unaffected by the environment, solid dielectric insulated busbar, sealed-for-life compartments, reduced gas pressure
      • Maximum safety: operating safety includes integrated mechanical and electrical interlocks to prevent improper operation. Arc resistant per IEC internal arc classification AFLR
      • Investment optimization: utilize the compact design to save space in pre-existing as well as pre-fabricated electrical buildings (E-Houses), and reduce operating cost thanks to the extremely low maintenance needs.

      Applications

      CBGS-0 has been designed to meet the needs of indoor substations across a wide range of applications including heavy industries, water and wastewater facilities, utilities, wind farms, data centers, and traction substations. CBGS-0 is a fantastic investment for use in main-feeder and main-tie-main applications, among others.
