Direct Replacement or Retrofill Solution Page 4Confidential Property of Schneider Electric | Our direct replacement and retrofill switchgear modernization solutions will expand the capabilities of your electrical system with minimal downtime. Confidential Property of Schneider Electric | Before and after photos of MV retrofill upgrade Retrofill The existing switchgear cell and bus are modified to accept the new circuit breaker. This option requires a longer bus outage (compared to the direct replacement option), during which time the internal circuit breaker cell is modified to accept the new circuit breaker. A Masterpact cradle-in-cradle design is utilized for LV direct replacement solutions Direct Replacement Circuit breakers are designed to fit into the existing cubicle with little-to-no modification to the switchgear cell. Reduces downtime since there is minimal (if any) outage on the equipment bus. schneider-electric.us/upgradesolutions
  5. 5. Switchgear Modernization: LV Page 5Confidential Property of Schneider Electric | Direct Replacement (Low Voltage) Confidential Property of Schneider Electric | • A MasterpactTM cradle is installed into an adapter cradle, which is then installed into the switchgear cubicle. • This cradle-in-cradle assembly locks into place and remains in the switchgear cell after installation. • The new Masterpact circuit breaker racks in and out of the adapter cradle. • A new door is installed, however cell interlocks, the racking mechanism and the switchgear structure are not modified.
