Elastimold Solid Dielectric Switchgear Small-Vault

Elastimold™ was the first completely solid dielectric line of medium voltage switchgear and offers a compelling value to public power and investor-owned utility companies in their electrical distribution systems. Modular and field-upgradeable, Elastimold small-vault switchgear is compact and lightweight enough to fit through a manhole.

  • Fits in tight vaults.
  • Sealed and submersible to 3 meters.
  • Modular design allows for combining switches and interrupters in an unlimited number of ways and configurations — with the option to reconfigure or expand in the future.
  • Enhanced safety with dead-front construction that virtually eliminates exposure to live components. Optional Tru-Break™ switchgear module provides visible assurance that the circuit is de-energized and isolated for an added measure of crew confidence and safety.
  • Contains no oil or SF6 gas for a more reliable, cost-effective and sustainable grid and requires virtually no maintenance for lower total cost of ownership.

This is an excellent option to upgrade from air, oil, or gas to Solid Dielectric installation.

The future isn’t written - When it comes to the connection, protection and distribution of electrical power, ABB is writing the future today.
