NeoGear™

Did you know… 
...NeoGear™ is the safest switchgear ever made?

A switchgear functions exactly as a fuse box in your home - switching power on and off for safe energy distribution to electrical equipment larger than you would typically have at home. This could be, for example, a motor powering an elevator or floodlights in a stadium. In an electric distribution system, switchgear combine fuses or circuit breakers to control and protect electrical equipment as well as people. Amazingly, the design of switchgear largely remained the same for decades, having thick bare copper bars inside to distribute the current within. In 2019, ABB introduced NeoGear™, the next-generation of low-voltage switchgear, which uses laminated copper plate technology, that revolutionized switchgear architecture.

The single laminated copper plate replaces the traditional bare copper bars, reducing the number of electrical connections by almost 90 percent and the space required for the bar by 50 percent. The copper plate is fully insulated - providing the highest level of safety for operating and maintenance personnel. This innovation reduces heat losses by 30 percent, reduces the switchgear footprint by up to 25 percent, and saves energy to cool the switchgear by up to 20 percent.
