Remote Operation

Remote switching permits operation of the circuit breaker away from the substation at a safe distance. Direct operation of the switchgear is one of the most frequent exercises that exposes an operator to risk.
Circuit breakers can be opened and closed from a remote location, removing the operator outside the area of risk.
Remote switching provides a safer operating environment for personnel through the proven method of adding distance between the operator and the risk at the switchgear site.

Two options are available:

Option 1 – Remote Control Panel

  • Dedicated control for each panel
  • One set of trip and close operators with key to determine panel.

Option 2 – Remote Control Pendant

  • Lead length: 10m, 15m or request
  • Plugs into panel to be operated
