Full Lifecycle Management

A different approach to managing SF6 Gas Break Switches.

Peace of mind doesn't just comes from having a validated product specification. It involves the ongoing management of products after they have been deployed, for the whole of their life. Working directly with end users, Insulect developed modular lifecycle services that can provide added reliability and better planning for asset managers.

For our SF6 Gas Break Switches, this approach involves turning the traditional business model on its head. One of the key services we offer involves extending the life of products through factory refurbishment - saving costs and land fill - without compromising reliability.



Sectionalisers in place of drop out fuses.

Electronic Sectionaliser links are used in conjunction with an upstream recloser and replace the traditional spur dropout fuse protection.

The majority of faults are transient faults – the old style spur fuse protection schemes result in a blown fuse, causing inconvenience to customers and network operators. Many of these faults can be managed with the Electronic Sectionaliser when used in conjunction with an up-stream auto recloser and thus avoiding the transient fault interruption.
