MVCB Series 

Benshaw’s free-standing medium voltage switchgear is the newest product in our portfolio, offering the same rugged and reliable design and performance of all our medium voltage products. To ensure the safety of personnel servicing the equipment, all Benshaw’s medium voltage switchgear offerings include a rack-out circuit breaker design.

A remote breaker control panel and arc flash sensing options are also available to further enhance personnel safety. In addition, Benshaw offers a full metal-clad switchgear solution.

The switchgear is provided in a NEMA-rated enclosure configured for use as a stand-alone unit, in an equipment line-up or an MCC. Benshaw switchgear connects seamlessly to the rest of the Benshaw MCC for a space-saving design to feed line-ups or in jumbo starter solutions.

The Benshaw Application and Engineering Support team is available to customize switchgear designs to meet customers’ specific application needs without extended lead times.
