GE's Evolution Series Switchboard combines full selective coordination and arc flash protection
- Category: Electrical systems
- Product Type: Power distribution (transformers, contactors, fuses/circuit breakers)
- Manufacturer: GE
Featuring instantaneous zone-selective interlocking (I-ZSI) and waveform recognition (WFR) technologies, GE’s Evolution Series Switchboard provides users with a combination of full selective coordination and simultaneous arc flash protection. In addition, its I-ZSI and WFR technologies enable multiple layers of circuit breakers to operate as one unified system. When responding to a fault, the Evolution Series Switchboard can tell circuit breakers to respond either immediately or as a backup, depending on the situation.
The Evolution Series is built to provide the clearance needed to accommodate additional breakers in a more-efficient footprint. Allowing for front access to the neutrals and ground, while featuring factory-installed splicing, the Evolution Series Switchboard can streamline installations and simplify the upgrade process. In addition to the size, selectivity and arc flash benefits, it features a stationary 4,000 A, 100 percent-rated main circuit breaker and remote racking devices. It also offers expanded ratings up to 6,000 A, with bus densities as low as 667A/in2.
