The NewSM6 is a medium-voltage switchgear, situated in the upstream electric system of buildings. It distributes energy to the building. This solution is in line with Schneider Electric’s sustainable development ambitions – it uses air rather than gas to ensure the electric break (highlighted by the green tank) – while retaining high standards of safety. It comes with new sensing and communication capabilities that provide real-time visibility of the equipment’s health status. This reduces risk and increases efficiency.
