The FlashGard low-voltage motor control center offers disconnect units from the vertical bus with the door closed and an optional, remote-operated racking device so users can advance and retract the stabs from distances up to 25 feet. An ARC Reduction Maintenance Switch reduces the time-available fault current. The system also includes a freewheeling racking mechanism that prevents overtorquing, and an interlock prevents removal of the buckets while the stabs are engaged on the vertical bus.
