GE launches SecoGear metal-clad switchgear


June 4, 2015 – GE’s Industrial Solutions business recently announced that its two-high SecoGear, air-insulated medium-voltage (MV) switchgear is expected to be available later this year.

The new ANSI/IEEE switchgear is designed with predictive modeling, arc-pressure and heat/stress analyses. The SecoVac breaker also is approximately 100 lb lighter in weight compared to other industry circuit breakers, according to GE.

This product is focused on commercial construction applications, such as entertainment arenas, hospitals, data centers, high-rise office buildings and retail malls.

GE said it will launch several other MV products throughout the next several months and well into 2016 as well.

“We are firmly committed to investing and expanding our global MV capabilities by developing a modular and cost-competitive MV portfolio well-suited for manufacturing and reduced lead times,” said Stuart Thompson, general manager of Power Equipment, GE’s Industrial Solution business. “Our expanded MV product line is designed with the operator in mind; focused on simplifying installation and upkeep by developing products with fewer parts.”

GE’s MV platform also includes its recently launched ANSI/IEEE SecoBloc original equipment manufacturer (OEM) modules.
