A Reliable Solution

S&C’s Vista and Vista SD switchgear mitigate reliability challenges while minimizing downtime and operations and maintenance costs.

Vista Underground Distribution Switchgear

Vista Underground Distribution Switchgear

Vista switchgear solves difficult switching and protection problems and improves reliability. Built with the user in mind, it only takes one person to operate, and features a sequence of operations designed for safety. Vista switchgear is also available in new green designs using an optional alternative insulating gas with a drastically reduced global-warming potential.

Vista SD Underground Distribution Switchgear

Vista SD switchgear offers an environmentally-friendly alternative to solving switching, protection, and reliability challenges using solid-dielectric material instead of SF6 gas. Vista SD switchgear is particularly advantageous in vault applications with its highly visible breaks, flexible design, and front-facing terminations.

A Green Alternative

Vista and Vista SD switchgear help C&I facilities meet corporate sustainability goals. Vista SD switchgear uses solid-dielectric material and Vista switchgear is now available in green designs using vacuum interrupters and 3M™ Novec™ 4710 Insulating Gas*. These designs have a 97% lower CO2e than the sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) gas Vista switchgear. When factoring in the CO2 produced in manufacturing and the total lifecycle of the product, the Vista green designs have a lower total carbon footprint than other submersible switchgear alternatives while having all the same operational and design benefits as SF6 gas Vista switchgear.
