Digital switchgear: The next generation of medium voltage switchgear | November 18, 2020

 
Speaker: Natalie Silva, ABB Product Marketing Specialist
Expertise: Basic & Intermediate
 
Switchgear performance failures are rare, but the results can be catastrophic. Digital switchgear enables a safer work environment through design enhancements, which also provide savings in the form of commissioning and operation of the system. The digital switchgear solution is increasingly being considered in electrical distribution. It is based on technologies such as current and voltage sensors, finger-safe digital test switches, and IEC 61850. Due to the increased simplicity and reliability, and by reducing the interaction with the equipment by service technicians, operational safety is dramatically increased.

Consolidating components in OEM designs using intelligent breakers | November 4, 2020

 
Speaker: John Belshe, ABB Product Marketing Manager
Expertise: Basic & Intermediate
 
How many components are you using in your electrical protection? If you used half, or even a quarter of those components, how much in labor costs would you save? In this webinar we will examine how advanced components such as intelligent circuit breakers and Ekip UP can consolidate components to save time during production, commissioning, and troubleshooting.

In this webinar we will cover:
1. Consolidate components used in common protection schemes
2. Determine when it makes sense and when it doesn’t to consolidate components
3. Provide additional features at zero extra component costs.

This webinar is applicable not only for ABB’s Tmax XT molded case circuit breakers, but also for Emax 2 air circuit breakers and our Ekip UP relays.
