  • in industrial plants,
  • in unmanned distribution substations and distribution - transformer transportable stations.

General characteristics

  • indoor drawout switchgear, air - insulated,
  • free standing or wall mounted,
  • metal - clad, with metallic partitions and a single system of busbars,
  • fit for computer aided system of supervision and control,
  • equipped with the system of quick breaking of arc fault,
  • cubicles fulfil the requirements of standards in arc protection inside the enclosure,
  • D-12P type switchgear (up to 1600 A, up to 31,5 kA/3s) with approval of the president of state mining authority (WUG) to used in underground mining plants,
  • available variants:
    • P - standard version,
    • PL - version with motor drivers of withdrawable part end earthing switch.


  • small overall dimensions,
  • reliable system of lifting metallic shutters,
  • possibility of moving the withdrawable part with motor drive mechanism,
  • possibility of closing and opening of the earthing switch with motor drive mechanism,
  • electromechanical interlock which prevents closing the earthing switch when its fixed contacts are live,
  • convenient switching operations with closed door,
  • guarantee of proper switching operation owing to the system of interlocks eliminating faults,
  • safety for the operating staff,
  • possibility of carrying out repair and maintenance works within the unit without a need to de-energise the busbars of the switchgear,
  • high voltage indication in each cubicle,
  • possibility of quick replacement of the circuit-breaker,
  • convenient access to connect cables and apparatus,
  • minimal inspection and maintenance requirements,
  • environment friendly production and operation,
  • producer's professional service,
  • possibility to perform for the ambient temperatures of + 40°C (switchgears type D-12P, D-17P),
  • in places subject to vibrations we perform foundation the switchgear on a special frame using elements of antivibration - vibration damping,
  • perfect quality finish (painted or galvanised).
