Eaton Electrical switchgear provides centralized control and protection of low and medium-voltage power equipment and circuits in industrial, commercial, and utility installations involving generators, motors, feeder circuits, and transmission and distribution lines.
Low Voltage Switchgear
Switchgear is utilized in the protection, controlling, and monitoring of low voltage distribution systems. Although used as "stand-alone" distribution assemblies, they are quite often incorporated into secondary unit substations so that the equipment can be located more closely to the point of power utilization. Cutler-Hammer Magnum DS Switchgear is ideally suited for all types of industrial, commercial and utility applications with distribution systems rated 600 volts or below.
Medium Voltage Metal Enclosed
Eaton's medium voltage metal enclosed suite of products includes Cutler-Hammer MVS Load Interrupter & motor operated Switches and breakers, along with Cutler-Hammer's innovative Metal enclosed front-accessible switchgear (MEF). In continuing our long-standing tradition of innovating to meet our customer's needs, Eaton's space optimized and agile design offers the industry's highest power density and flexible suite of metal-enclosed switchgear options. Offering a wide variety of configurations, standard drawing packages, intelligent integrated trip units, and reduced clearance installation options, Eaton's MEF design can significantly reduce a projects overall cost!

High Resistance Pulse Grounding Systems
Where continuity of service is a high priority, high-resistance grounding can add the safety of a grounded system while minimizing the risk of service interruptions due to grounds. The concept is a simple one: provide a path for ground current via a grounding transformer (with adjustable resistance across its secondary) that limits the current magnitude and a monitor to determine when an abnormal condition exists.
With Cutler-Hammer's PSI/II (live-front) and PSE (dead-front) Padmounted Switchgear, users can now purchase the complete range of medium-voltage switching and protection products necessary for the distribution of power throughout an expansive commercial, industrial or institutional facility from the utility primary source down to the utilization voltage from a single source! Padmounted switchgear is available for manual, automatic source transfer, or SCADA operation in voltages of 15kV and 27kV with a 600-ampere interrupting rating.
Unitized Power Centers
Eaton's Cuter-Hammer unitized dry-type power centers are self-contained metal-enclosed unit substations designed to supply and distribute low voltage power from medium voltage lines in modern commercial and industrial systems. In today's space constrained environment Eaton's UPCs offer a cost-effective solution reducing footprints and total cost-of-ownership costs. By reducing equipment size, increasing accessibility, and making installation more user-friendly, Eaton's UPC product line is a cost-effective choice.
