Eaton’s metal-enclosed load interrupter switchgear has an 18-inch wide structure with front-accessible cable terminations that is designed for industrial, institutional and healthcare customers. Courtesy: EatonEaton's narrow switchgear design provides reliable switching and fault protection of medium-voltage circuits for industrial, institutional and healthcare customers. The metal-enclosed load interrupter switchgear with a narrow design is engineered to reduce the footprint of electrical distribution systems in an environmentally friendly and compact design.

Eaton’s metal-enclosed load interrupter switchgear has an 18-in. wide structure with front-accessible cable terminations that is engineered to minimize space requirements. Additionally, the design incorporates fuses for accurate, calibrated short-circuit detecting and interrupting capabilities to support power reliability. 

The Eaton metal-enclosed load interrupter switch uses flicker blade and DE-ION arc chute technology, which is designed to prolong the life of the main blades by minimizing arcing between the main blades and the stationary contacts. The switchgear avoids the use of Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) gas that contributes to the greenhouse effect. 

Eaton’s metal-enclosed load interrupter switchgear is tested to meet the C37.20.3 standards of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) C37.20.3 as well as the standards of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and Canadian Standards Association (CSA).

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
