S&C’s “dead-front” PME Pad-Mounted Gear features elbow-connected components. All switch and fuse components are enclosed and protected within an inner, air-insulated steel compartment that keeps out foliage, wildlife, and contaminants, and also reduces exposure to energized live parts. The three-piece roof is hinged over the cable compartments; cables can be pulled up through the opening, simplifying installation.

PME Pad-Mounted Gear is offered in manual, remote supervisory, and source-transfer versions.
