What We Do

S&C specializes in the switching, protection, and control of electric power systems. Our solutions are an essential part of the electrical grid that brings power to homes and businesses. This started with a single product in 1909, the Liquid Power Fuse, which was the first reliable power fuse able to protect against the high currents in distribution substations. Its invention helped pioneer the widespread adoption and spread of electricity.

Today, we are applying our century-long heritage of innovation to address the challenges facing today’s power grid. We push the boundaries of reliability by reducing the duration of power outages from hours to seconds — or to no outage at all. We are designing systems to withstand the impacts of time and nature to help keep the lights on for customers during major weather events. Our award-winning microgrid systems are providing breakthroughs in how distributed generation resources, including energy storage, solar, and wind, are managed by customers and their utility.

To help our customers solve the challenges of today and tomorrow’s grid, our solutions are backed by our S&C experts. These are the men and women with skills and know-how to help customers plan and execute the solutions they need – from concept through completion.
