Information request
Its main features :
  • Has three distinct positions: Connected, Test and Disconnected
  • Fully integrated in the circuit breaker and each mechanism is operated individually
  • Operates without special handling and without effort
  • Can be operated manually or remotely (with motorized option)
  • Even with the motorized option, it is possible to operate it manually, at any times, without special handling, without effort and safely.
  • Completely adaptable to meet the customer’s needs
  • Adapted to the majority of available circuit breakers on the market
  • Complies with CSA standards for switchgear inside use.
  • Can be retrofitted into the vast majority of the medium voltage switchgear of Technologies DUAL-ADE already in service

A touch of innovation

Technologies DUAL-ADE thinks of you

A mechanism that informs you…

… the status and the exact position of the circuit breaker during its movement, in real time and visually with the integrated camera system and to its operator’s interface.
-Technologies DUAL-ADE thinks that this will be useful to you.

A mechanism that reduces maintenance costs…

… because the laboratory tests, performed according to ANSI standard, shows that the mechanism can perform beyond 2500 cycles of operation without wear or deterioration of the mechanism, 5 times more than what this standard requires.
- Technologies DUAL-ADE protects your investment.

A smart mechanism…

…which knows the circuit breaker position at all times, whether it is manual or motorized, even after a power failure. If the position of the circuit breaker is not recognized, an automatic reset is done safely.
- Technologies DUAL-ADE anticipates the unpredictable

A motorized mechanism that protects the operator…

… because he will never have to be near the switchgear, or even in the same room, whether it be opening, closing or changing the position of the circuit breaker. The only handling he will have to do will be to insert or remove the circuit breaker from its cell.
- Technologies DUAL-ADE thinks that, like us, you are concerned about the safety of your operators.
