GE EnergyGE SwitchboardsExperience the future with thenext generation of GE switchboards
When you need morefrom a switchboardFrom a solid legacyThe Evolution Series Switchboard is just that— the logical evolution ofour highly regarded Spectra Series Switchboard. With an installed baseof thousands of units worldwide, Spectra Series Switchboards set thestandard for functionality, flexibility, and rugged, durable construction.Evolution Series Switchboards build on this legacy and provide thefoundation for power distribution systems wherever 24/7 reliability isan absolute necessity.130 YearsThere are few companies in the world with as long oras distinguished a record of innovation as GE. And whilewe’re proud of our history, our success has always dependedon our ability to look ahead and anticipate the needs of ourcustomers. The Evolution Series Switchboard is squarelyin that tradition.
To the next stepEvolution takes switchboard design into the future, in the processdemonstrating that you can have both superior selectivity andrigorous arc flash protection. The Evolution Series Switchboardaccommodates the latest technology for people and propertyprotection like Instantaneous Zone Selective Interlocking (I-ZSI)and Reduced Energy Let Through (RELT). In addition, the EvolutionSeries Switchboard features a robust enclosure designed for spaceefficiency and ease of installation.GE is leading the future ofelectrification by committingto technologies that will helpcreate a cleaner, smarter,and more efficient globalelectrical infrastructure.
Prepare for the future– todayFeatures and BenefitsAs our line of Evolution Series Switchboards expands,the list of leading edge features and benefits will grow.From the start, you can count on Evolution SeriesSwitchboards to deliver: Ease of installation Improved Arc Flash Mitigation Enhanced Selectivity Expanded Ratings Efficient FootprintEnhanced SelectivityEvolution Series Switchboards are compatible withRecord Plus , Spectra andEntelliGuard circuit breakers.Ease of InstallationFront access neutral andground as well as spliceplates for easier connections make working onEvolution Series Switchboards simpler, quicker,and safer.Improved Arc Flash MitigationEvolution accommodates the advancedtechnology built into GE EntelliGuard circuit breakers and trip units: I nstantaneous Zone Selective Interlocking(I-ZSI) simultaneously provides arc faultprotection and instantaneous selectivity—an industry first! R educed Energy Let Through (RELT)Instantaneous trip allows a circuit breakerto be temporarily set to a more sensitivepickup to provide better protection duringinstallation and maintenance, providing anadded margin of safety for personnel.Interior hardwarelayout of the newEvolution SeriesSwitchboardsNew horizontal split bus designreduces the overall material andweight while maintaining UL heatrise standards.
