Introduction to Solid Dielectric Switchgear with an Integrated Visible Break
Learn about solid dielectric insulation, and how G&W’s integrated visible break – the first in the market – reduces the total cost of switchgear ownership while maintaining operator safety. Recorded at G&W, this video includes a review of switchgear history and its evolution.
Western Area Power Administration developed this training to help linemen comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's new fall protection standards, requiring 100% attachment and fall arrest and restraint on wood and steel structures.
Con Edison continues to develop technology to keep pedestrians and pets safe from contact voltage. Company crews now use hand-held, directional electric-field sensors to zero in on objects that are energized. Con Edison crews investigating contact voltage reports sweep the device from side to side until the lights on the device glow bright red. The lights indicate the device is near an energized streetlight, sidewalk grating, fence or other object. Con Edison developed the technology with the Electric Power Research Institute, a leader in researching the delivery of electricity.
