Industrial switchgear of any voltage is expected to perform reliably under normal circumstances, even if normal circumstances involve operating outdoors in every type of weather, climate, and environmental condition. There are a number of advantages to locating switchgear outside. It requires less construction, which reduces cost and time for installation; it permits more flexible spacing between adjoining equipment; it simplifies future expansions of the installation; and, if used to power a facility, it frees up interior space.

Reliability is the key criteria for selecting outdoor switchgear. CBS Northeast’s expansive warehouse stocks a broad range of outdoor switchgear models and styles from a wide variety of manufacturers, including ABB, General Electric, Cutler-Hammer, ITE, and Allis Chalmers. The selection further encompasses both low- and medium-voltage options, as well as new and remanufactured equipment.

Our inventory even includes outdoor switchgear dating back to the 1940s, when the industrial electronics sector was still emerging to support a growing number of industrial users, hospitals, airports, and large institutions worldwide.
