Innovative concept for MV switchgear

June 6th, 2014, Published in Articles: Energize


An innovative concept for MV switchgear, ABB’s UniGear Digital is an advanced switchgear solution addressing important requirements of the future – flexibility, increased process efficiency, lower cost of operation and maximised integration, reliability and safety. It is accomplished by using state-of-the-art, well-proven components: current and voltage sensors, numerical multifunctional relays (IEDs) and IEC 61850 digital communication. This new solution enables engineers to focus on applications to create a reliable and efficient electrical network. It combines well-proven switchgear design with an innovative solution for protection, control, measurement and digital communication. The concept is available for UniGear ZS1 up to 17.5 kV and will be extended to the entire UniGear 12 – 24 kV portfolio.
