Frequently Asked Questions

What is LV switchgear?

LV stands for Low Voltage Switchgear. It is a 3-phase power ditribution product, which is deisgned to efficiently, safely and reliably supply electricity around a building or structure in a controlled and safe manner. LV switchgear is usually rated at 400VAC three-phase and can supply loads of up to 6300 amps. An LV switchboard is supplied by either the secondary side of a transformer (low-voltage side), or a generator. 

Low voltage switchgear is also used to feed low voltage distribution, motor centres and sub-distribution boards.

What is LV switch room?

An LV switch room is a controlled area where the main LV distribution is situated. The LV switch room is a central space which can contain the main LV switchboards, package substations and other critical LV distribution.

Is 11kV HV or LV?

11kV would fall under the medium / high voltage category.

What is LV switchgear’s function?

The main function of LV switchgear is to distribute power around a building or structure in a safe and controlled manner.
