Definition of Retrofit

Retrofitting refers to the addition of new technology or features to older systems. Retrofit of switchgears means upgrading of old circuit breakers with up-to-date vacuum circuit breakers. Retrofit has the aim to increase the lifetime of a switchgear with increased availability, safety while reducing maintenance cost.

Why shall you choose Retrofit?

Circuit breaker has reached the end of its life-cycle

Outmoded technology increases safety and reliability risk

Increase of maintenance costs of old circuit breaker

Supply of spare parts can not be assured anymore

Replacement of old minimum oil or SF6 – technology

State-of-the-art vacuum switching technology

Minimization of customer‘s investment

Use of existing components

Special industrial applications, with no or less acceptable down time.
