Hawker Siddely Switchgear


A market leader in 11kV switchgear, the Eclipse is designed to provide a lifetime of unrivalled service, bringing together one of the most advanced operating mechanisms available on the market today – the award winning magnetic actuator technology – with vacuum interruption and the simplicity of air insulation in a compact, fixed pattern design.

Appreciated throughout the distribution network and across every business sector, the Eclipse currently holds a dominant market position for indoor 11kV switchgear.

The Eclipse is also now available as a pre-engineered solution in ratings up to 25kA, 2000A. Alternatively, it can be fully engineered to meet exact customers needs.

  • Superior, proven Fit & Forget technology with minimal maintenance.
  • The fixed pattern design had the simplicity of air insulation and, with the low parts count (the total parts count has been reduced by a factor of x20 and the number of moving parts by a factor of x50), is more compact (500mm wide) than equivalent rated GIS equipment.
  • Environmentally friendly vacuum interrupters.
  • Internal Arc containment.
  • Superior operator safety with a fully interlocked design, animated front panel mimic and a front access cable test facility, ensuring secure but simple operation.
  • Voltage Presence Indication System (VPIS) is fitted as standard to all panels (circuit).
  • Reliable control – supplied with an integral control module, providing indication, trip circuit supervision and self-diagnostics.
  • Customers choice of protection.
