Solutions for Data Centers
S&C’s medium-voltage switchgear products are well suited for data center applications.
Vista Underground Distribution Switchgear solves difficult switching and protection problems through 38 kV. Vista Switchgear features 600-ampere load-interrupter switches and resettable fault interrupters — all enclosed in a hermetically sealed, SF6-insulated tank for superior performance in the most challenging environments. Innovative features simplify operations, enhance safety, and minimize outage duration.
Vista Switchgear is available in manual, source-transfer, and remote supervisory versions, for pad-mounted, vault, and subsurface applications. A wide variety of circuit configurations and options can be furnished too.
S&C Custom Metal-Enclosed Switchgear — incorporating interrupter switches and power fuses in rugged enclosures featuring welded construction — is tailored to meet your specific distribution system needs. Available in ratings of through 38 kV, S&C Custom Metal-Enclosed Switchgear is ideal for applications having unique requirements beyond the scope of S&C’s pre-engineered switchgear.
PMX Switchgear, available through 27 kV, combines the solid features of S&C Custom Metal-Enclosed Switchgear with the size and economic benefits of S&C Pad-Mounted Gear. The pre-engineered modules are designed for easy assembly into switchgear lineups to suit a variety of applications. Switching for both entrance and feeder modules is handled by rugged S&C Mini-Rupter® Switches, offering up to 600 amperes full-load dropping and 25,000 amperes duty-cycle fault-closing.
System VI Switchgear, available through 38 kV, features a modular arrangement of Vista Switchgear sections. Using air-insulated bushings on one or both sides of the SF6-insulated tank, multiple sections are joined together with air-insulated transition bays, which can be furnished with metering transformers and other equipment.
Your new data center may require changes to an existing substation to upgrade a relay control panel, or to add switchgear feeder bays or a capacitor bank. Or it may require construction of an entirely new substation.
Whether your substation project is “brown field” or “green field,” S&C has the expertise to implement it . . . all the way from concept through construction. We can manage all aspects of the project, including preliminary engineering, permitting, design, construction, testing, and commissioning. We’ll make sure your project meets cost and scheduling requirements.
S&C regularly works with all the major electric utilities throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico and is familiar with their practices. You can take advantage of our knowledge, experience, and relationships to implement your data center power supply challenges in a most efficient manner.
S&C can engineer, procure, and construct your substation in far less time and cost than a utility company.
Unlike many utilities, S&C maintains a large staff of design engineers. We’ll be able to expedite your project and thus save you money. Here are some the substation services that S&C can provide on an engineer, procure, and construct (EPC) basis:
- Analytical Studies
- Engineering Services
- Procurement Services
- Construction Management
- Installation Services
- Project Management
Upon completion of your substation project, S&C can also provide a full range of ongoing services to assure its continuing excellent performance. Here are just a few of these services:
