VEKE 24 is developed primarily for substations, power plants and industrial electrical distribution where compact functionality, safety and durability are needed. In the versatile furnishing of the switchgear, components from the best manufacturers in the field are used. The VEKA product family’s circuit-breakers are used as a main component. The cubicle structure, insulation and bushings are designed to enable customised technical and economical solutions.
Due to its static and rigid frame, VEKE 24 is easy to move and transport even over longer distances. The rigid frame does not cause tension in the bus ducts or the switchgear connections. The switchgear is type tested and arc tested to IEC/EN standards.
The unit’s rated voltages are;
- 12 kV, thermal short-circuit resistance 40 kA (3 sec) and rated current 630-3150A
- 24 kV, thermal short-circuit resistance 25 kA (3sec) and rated current 630-2000A
The switchgear is designed for safe use: all functions are performed behind closed doors, the breaker and earthing switch are mechanically locked together, and the function unit is equipped with blocking plates to prevent faulty operation.
