Risks

Risky Business, Hidden Problems with Metal-Clad Circuit-Breaker Switchgear



green pad-mounted underground distribution switchgear

Vista Underground Distribution Switchgear

Vista switchgear solves difficult switching and protection challenges and improves reliability using SF6 insulating gas. Built with the user in mind, it only takes one person to operate and includes other features designed for operator safety, such as highly visible gaps.

Vista Green Unit

Vista Green Underground Distribution Switchgear

Vista Green switchgear provides the same features and design and reliability benefits of Vista switchgear without the SF6 gas. This eco-friendly alternative is instead hermetically sealed mixture of 3M™ Novec™ 4710 Insulating Gas* and CO2, reducing its total carbon footprint by 97% compared to SF6 switchgear.

Vista SD Underground Distribution Switchgear

Vista SD switchgear is another eco-friendly option that uses solid-dielectric material instead of an insulating gas. With its highly visible breaks, flexible design, and front-facing terminations, this switchgear is particularly advantageous in vault applications and higher altitudes.

Why Go Green?

Vista Green switchgear helps C&I companies meet corporate sustainability goals while including all the operational and design benefits of Vista switchgear. Vista Green switchgear uses a hermetically-sealed mixture of 3M™ Novec™ 4710 Insulating Gas* and CO2 instead of SF6 gas, along with vaccum interrupters. When factoring in the total greenhouse gas emissions produced during the lifecycle of the product, Vista Green switchgear has a 97% lower total carbon footprint than all other SF6 switchgear.
