installation and operation


recommendation

switchgear ageing
withstand in an MV
substation depends on 3
main factors:

The need for proper


implementation of connections:
the new cold slip---on and
retractable technologies offer ease
of installation, thereby promoting
withstand over time.
Their design enables operation in
polluted environments with harsh
atmospheres.

Ventilation control:
the grids must be sized according
to power loss in the substation.
These grids must only be placed
near the transformer, so as to
prevent air circulating on the MV
switchboard.

The influence of the relative


humidity factor:
installation of heating resistors is
essential in climates with high
relative humidity and large
temperature differences.

maintenance instructions

preventive
maintenance, cleaning
instructions and
power---up

We strongly recommend that you


carry out at regular intervals (at
least roughly every 2 years) a few
operating cycles on the
switching devices.

If necessary: contact the


Schneider Electric group service
centre.

CAUTION

CAUTION

Never lubricate the disconnector


operating mechanism.
If necessary: contact the
Schneider Electric group service
centre. In normal operating
conditions (temperature between --5C and 40 C) no special
maintenance is required.

Never use solvents and alcohol.


We recommend that you inspect
each compartment (cable, fuse,
busbar)* at regular intervals
according to environmental
conditions.

If the insulating parts are dusty, that


you remove the dust using a dry
cloth.

example :

In harsher conditions
(aggressive atmosphere, dust,
temperature less than --- 5 C
or greater than 40 C) consult
the nearest Schneider Electric
service centre.
