Adding safety: Door interlocks & isolator replacement

ABB as an organization is committed to safety of life and
products. All ABB products exhibit highest standards of safety
and have all safety interlocks which ensure human safety. ABB
has extended its expertise to provide the safety interlocks
solutions to even non-ABB make switchgears. It is of utmost
importance that all modern interlocks are provided which
prevents any operator to get access to live parts unknowingly.
ABB safety solutions enable customers to incorporate rear
and front door interlocks, double bus Isolator replacement for
older panels.

Customer Need:
Human safety is of utmost importance to all organizations.
With the technological development, new panels have
all modern & enhanced interlocking systems which were
absent in older installations viz door interlocks, interlock for
manually operated isolators etc.. This stimulates concerns
for older installations. Hence, safety upgrades are of utmost Rear Door Interlock Implementation
importance as any accident or loss of life translates into huge
consequential losses.

Since Older panels with double bus bar system have room to
malfunction due to wear and tear in mechanical components.
ABB provides the new isolator design for older installations
to make them more safe to use & operate. ABB also provides
necessary kits for door interlocking system. ABB experts
commission the components in minimum downtime.

– Optimization of cost
– Makes panels safer to use

Busbars upgrades

ABB service provide customers with the option to upgrade the
existing busbars of the switchgear to a higher current rating
to handle more loads due to increase in demand. This activity
can be carried out, generally , in all types of switchgears
(ABB & Non-ABB) .Complete rating of the switchgears can be
enhanced by changing the busbars & circuit breakers. ABB
provides a complete life cycle support to customers.

Customer Need:
With continuous increase in demand of power, the old
systems are no longer sufficient to cater to the growing needs
. More often than not, clients are facing the need to enhance
the capacity of their switchgears and make them more safe
to use. Adding new generators and transformers to the
existing systems requires the busbars of the switchgears Old switchgear
to be upgraded to a higher current rating. In such cases,
changing/modifying/adding the busbars along with retrofit of
circuit breakers proves to be a good alternative rather than
changing or adding the new switchgear. This saves time and

ABB has expertize provide efficient on time installations of
new busbars into the switchgears. ABB supplies all types
of busbars as per existing switchgear which are the fitted
properly by ABB experts.All necessary testing is carried out at
site to certify the compatibility.

– Experience shows that an I S-limiter trips once every four

The function of the I S Limiter

Circuit-breakers cannot provide any protection against unduly
high peak short-circuit currents, as they are too slow. Only
the IS-limiter is capable of detecting and limiting a short-circuit
current at the first rise, i.e. in less than 1 ms. The maximum
instantaneous current occurring remains well below the level
of the peak short-circuit current. In comparison with complex
conventional solutions, the I S Limiter has both technical and
economic advantages when used in transformer or generator
feeders, in switchgear sectionalizing and connected in
parallel with reactors. The I S Limiter is in every regard the
ideal switching device to solve the short-circuit problems for
switchgear in power stations, in heavy industry and at utilities.
