Low voltage switchgear

MODUL-K-SYSTEM

Design verified / type-tested, earthquake-proof low voltage switchgear system from 630 to 6300 amperes

Characteristics

With the MODUL-K-SYSTEM we developed a specialised, technically advanced and economical system for low-voltage machinery, which can be selectively used as a power distribution board for the low voltage main distribution or as a motor control center (MCC). Its modular configuration enables various installation techniques, from permanent mounting to a totally modular drawer system. An ideal complete solution for industrial applications that ensures utmost system availability with the fewest components.
The KAUTZ system configurations 630 A to 6300 A, always designed to precise customer specifications, are suitable for universal use, as well as for the increased requirements in heavy industry and the energy sector.
