October 16, 2013 – Designed and manufactured entirely in Canada, Schneider Electric’s new multi-distribution switchboard (MDS) is available in multiple, pre-designed configurations, and is suitable for applications in which space is at a premium.

At 30-in. wide, the smallest MDS option is 29% smaller than other switchboards offered by Schneider, making it a suitable solution for small- to mid-sized commercial customers requiring up to 1200 amps. The MDS is configured to order and manufactured in multiple plants across Canada, ensuring it is shipped quickly to customers. A key aspect of the MDS design was to improve wiring and feeder space, says the company; MDS is free-standing for either single section or multiple section applications with several choices of distribution panels in the main section. Tin-plated aluminum or silver-plated copper bus material is available to meet a range of budgets. The MDS is tested and certified to CSA 22.2 No. 31 and meets Canadian utility requirements.
