It offers a wide range of load switch and circuit breaker combinations and a large selection of IDMT relays, VPIS/VDS, EFI and other accessories, providing maximum flexibility.
All live parts in the Aegis 36kV are insulated within an SF6 gas insulated, hermetically-sealed stainless steel enclosure. In addition, it has an internal arc rated cable box, internal cable compartment and key locks for safe operation.

This is our first 36kV RMU, and offers our customers a flexible, cost effective, reliable and high performance solution.
