"Actionable Insights to Fuel Your Growth"
Switchgear rated up to 1kV is termed as low voltage switchgear. It includes circuit breakers, switches, pff load electrical isolators, HRC fuses, earth leakage circuit breakers, miniature circuit breakers (MCB), and molded case circuit breakers (MCCB) which are required for the protection of low voltage switchgear. The most common use of low voltage switchgear is in the distribution board. Incomer, sub-incomer, and feeders are part of the system. Low voltage switchgear is preferable as low voltage switchgear power systems in an industrial setting provide continuous power to as much of the facility as possible and protect personnel from electrical hazards such as arc blasts.
Increasing construction activities and installation of renewable energy are expected to drive low voltage switchgear market. Low voltage includes switches & fuses, oil-filled circuit breaker, distribution boards, residual current devices, and others. Infrastructure developments in the commercial and industrial sector in some regions is expected to upsurge the switchgear market along with rapid growth in distributed energy resource.
