Arc Resistant Low-Voltage Switchgear
AKD-20 & Entellisys* AR: Protection You Can Count On
GE’s AKD-20 and Entellisys Arc Resistant (AR) Switchgear solutions are for applications where an extra margin of safety is essential. They meet the IEEE C37.20.7 Type 2B AR standard which states that the equipment will provide arc resistance protection on the front, rear, and sides while opening designated low-voltage compartments.
Think Ahead: Redirect Arc Flash Explosions
AKD-20 and Entellisys AR are designed to contain and redirect the arc flash energy and exhaust gases up through vent flaps at the top of the enclosure and away from the system through a plenum. In the case of an arc flash event, pressure activated flaps slam shut to seal ventilation areas in the rear cable compartment.
The rugged dead front panels protect personnel from the explosive force of arc flash occurrences. The circuit breaker cubicle doors are provided with a reinforced escutcheon gasket, protecting operators from exhaust gases and other materials.
Designed for the Safety of Personnel and Equipment
The AKD-20 and Entellisys AR are designed with the safety of your personnel and equipment in mind. The smaller footprint allows for flexibility in your plans. GE’s unique Entellisys and ArcWatch* technologies offer even more advanced safety solutions against arc flash occurrences. Using interlocking systems these two technologies increase protection while maintaining system uptime.
