Global temperatures and wildfire occurrence is on the rise. Can you take the heat?

Accidentally starting a wildfire is a universal concern that will become more critical to address as global climates become hotter and drier.

Aging, spark-intensive equipment can start wildfires that endanger your customers, finances and reputation. Moreover, your best option, disabling reclosing on high fire risk days, means your customers are without power under intense heat.

Arming your grid with a new low-spark protection strategy mitigates wildfire risk while promoting future network resilience and reliance.

A Low-Spark Solution

New, low-spark management strategies reduce the risk of vulnerable overhead lines and equipment at the edge of your grid.

  1. These debrisless fuses for transformer protection comply with Australian Spark Production Standard 1033.1-1990 high-voltage fuse requirements and minimize parts expelled.

  2. These devices minimize spark levels during feeder reclosing—even on downed conductors—by using 95% less energy through PulseClosing® Technology.

  3. These fuseless lateral reclosers use vacuum interrupters and can be placed in Non-Reclose mode. The devices are spark-minimizing, having met CAL FIRE exemption status.

  4. These spark-minimizing resettable fuses use vacuum interrupters to clear faults above overhead distribution transformers.
