GE Commercial Alliance with Powell Industries
Effective August 2006, GE and Powell Industries entered into a commercial alliance that offers new benefits to our customers.
Powell has acquired technology and certain assets associated with GE’s MV ANSI switchgear product line, including breakers.
Powell will provide GE with all of its MV ANSI switchgear needs, including equipment rated up to 38kV and a complete line of arc-resistant equipment.
The alliance shows GE’s long term commitment to supply all equipment and systems for the management and control of electrical energy, and our medium-voltage switchgear offering grows to meet the more demanding needs of industrial customers. This alliance will allow us to be a one-stop-shop for all our customer’s needs by offering an expanded MV product line of quality, proven, and reliable products.
Not only was GE first to market vacuum interrupter technology, we invented it. And, with an installed base of 125,000 units, Power/Vac continues to bring you high quality, low maintenance and long life.
Power/Vac switchgear incorporates the compartment concept with grounded metal barriers that segregate primary functions so that no live parts are exposed. Safety interlocks are standard, as are closed door racking and storage, breaker position indicator and positively actuated safety shutters. It meets a wide variety of protection and switching applications. All functional units – incoming line, radial feeders, feeder bypass, bus-tie, bus-entrance and auxiliary units – are available to give you wide latitude in system planning. These, plus the versatility of one- or two-high stacking, afford maximum value for your application dollar.
At the heart of every Power/Vac switchgear is the vacuum interrupter, which delivers fast, quiet power switching and precise arc extinction. See more information in the Features below.
