Medium voltage switchgears

Already in former years, “Sprecher” had been associated with high-quality and reliable MV switchgear solutions. The cooperation between Sprecher Automation and ELATEC (Germany) brings the MV switchgear engineering back into the traditional premises in Linz (Upper Austria).

Together with its modern and reliable SPRECON control and protection systems (SPREcher CONtrol), Sprecher is back as the turnkey system provider including factory-assembled MV switchgears.

All MV switchgears provided by Sprecher Automation are based on a highly modular and flexible standardised system. The switchgear components are provided by ELATEC. Sprecher Automation offers project management, overall and detailed planning, assembly, final assembly and final inspection as well as testing. Beside ready-made delivery, Sprecher also provides on-site installation, commissioning as well as service and maintenance.

        Design characteristics

        The modular cubicles consist of high-quality zinc-plated steel sheets with bolts or rivets. The cubicle doors and the side covers are powder-coated. Folded edges lead to a distortionresistant, self-supporting and pressure-proof construction.

        Adjacent cubicles are separated by the two side walls and by air gaps. The switchgear front can be opened either from the right or left side at approximately 165°.



        Circuit diagrams are designed with ELCAD®, EPLAN® or RUPLAN® in their current/updated releases. As an option, documentation can also be provided with different CAE systems. All layouts and drawings are designed with AutoCAD®.
