ABB, a power and automation technology group, has released the VersaPad, a new medium-voltage, metal-enclosed switching product suitable for outdoor installations.

The VersaPad, which utilizes the ABB VersaRupter load break switch, has been designed using a dead-front enclosure where all energized components are enclosed within an inner grounded steel compartment, providing electrical isolation and protection from contamination.

"ABB's new VersaPad will exceed customer needs with an industry-matching footprint and a fully ANSI-tested design, and it will also provide the industry with the recognized reliability of the VersaRupter switch,” says Ken Alloway, ABB marketing manager for medium-voltage products. “We are pleased to offer a new switchgear product emphasizing greater safety and reliability to the market.”
