We are off on the road again touring the length of New Zealand, this time with an example of Siemens NXPLUS C primary switchboard panel on the back of a truck.
The NXPLUS C range supports voltages of 11, 22 and now 33 kV.
- For 11 and 22 kV applications the busbar can be rated at up to 2500 A. Circuit breakers of 450 mm width support 630 and 800 A circuits, and 600 mm width breakers support 1000 and 1250 A circuits.
- For 33 kV applications the busbar is rated for 1250 A. 600 mm width circuit breaker panels are required and are available with 630, 800, 1000 and 1250 A rating.
The NXPLUS C series is fixed pattern - that is, circuit breakers are non-withdraw, and are also gas-insulated. This provides a very compact solution that does not require extensive maintenance or monitoring. No gas handling equipment is required!
More information on the NXPLUS C range can be found on the Siemens website (NXPLUS C).
The NXPLUS C is a compact gas insulated range. For those who want air-insulated, the range is NXAIR. Details on NXAIR can be found in this section of the Siemens website (NXAIR).
