ABB’s new LeanGear ZS9 is an arc-proof, medium voltage, air-insulated switchgear unit, rated at 12 kV, 1250 A, and 25 kA, and designed to meet the space requirements and ratings of modern electrical distribution grids. The unit offers optimal safety and reliability standards, consistent with the the company’s Unigear range of switchgear. It is designed for use in a wide range of applications, including utility substations, light industry, building and infrastructure, data centres, water and wastewater facilities. The cubicle is fitted with the company’s VInd, a floor-rolling circuit breaker for simple racking-in/out operations without a separate handling trolley. The switchgear and the earthing switch are operated from the front of the cubicle with the door closed. This robust and flexible unit has been tested for tropical conditions. The product’s integrated ducting system offers increased levels of safety against the effects of internal arc, while comprehensive interlocks provide optimum protection for both personnel and equipment.
