Cat XLM Switchgear

Cat XLM Switchgear

Overview

XLM switchgear is used when the generators are paralleled with a normal utility (or multiple utility) power source(s). SLM switchgear allows closed transition, softloading and unloading from utility and peak shaving capability where generators operate continuously in parallel with the utility.

Specifications
