Schneider Electric DST2V electrical racking assembly

November 24, 2011 | By Alyssa Dalton

November 24, 2011 – Schneider Electric’s new closed door electric racking system for medium voltage DST2V roll-in replacement 5kV/15kV 1200A circuit breakers allows racking of the circuit breaker at a distance from the arc-flash hazard boundary, it says. According to Schneider, the manual/electrical racking mechanism is installed on the circuit breaker and is connected via the plug on the cell door; the door remains closed during the racking operation while the status of the breaker position is monitored from a pendant station (hand held) at up to 50 feet away from the switchgear section. No storage space is required for the electrical racking system, it adds.
