S&C: taking you from the grid you have to the grid you need.

S&C Electric Company is a global provider of equipment and services for electric power systems. Founded in 1911, the Chicago-based company designs and manufactures switching, protection, and control products for electric power transmission and distribution. S&C has global offices in the United States, Mexico, Canada, Brazil, the UK, and Australia.

S&C continues to advance new solutions as the electric grid undergoes transformative changes in the 21st century. One of the largest transformations underway is the improvement of lateral reliability. S&C products approach reliability from a comprehensive approach, eliminating unnecessary, sustained outages at all points of the distribution system.

Looking at an increasingly complex and dynamic grid, S&C is working closely with its electric utility customers to understand their electric grids and business challenges they face – then innovating solutions to address their power-delivery challenges.

  • S&C TripSaver® II Cutout-Mounted Recloser
    S&C’s TripSaver II Cutout-Mounted Recloser can dramatically improve the way your utility response to 80% of faults on lateral lines....

  • When a fault occurs, the TripSaver® II Cutout-Mounted Recloser combines the best of fuse–saving and fuse–blowing strategies without any of the drawbacks. When a temporary fault occurs, the Smart Grid solution eliminates momentary outages for customers on the main feeder by only blinking the affected laterals. This lateral–protection strategy saves money for the utility and its customers while improving reliability for all.

  • S&C Manual Vista® SD Underground Switchgear
    S&C now offers another choice in metal-enclosed gear. Economical new Vista SD Underground Distribution Switchgear is the first practical solid-dielectric switchgear with a visible open gap and field-replaceable bushings....

  • Vista SD Switchgear can be furnished with up to six “ways” (load-interrupter switches and/or fault interrupters), in ratings through 29 kV and 16 kA symmetrical interrupting. By handling more loads per assembly, fewer Vista SD Switchgear assemblies are required. Each load-interrupter switch and fault interrupter includes a manually operated, two-position isolating disconnect to provide a visible open gap.

    With Vista SD Underground Distribution Switchgear, routine operation, such as isolating a downstream cable for repair, is easy. Just one person, using either the manual handle or a suitable user-furnished universal pole equipped with a standard fitting can operate.

    Vista SD Underground Distribution Switchgear is furnished with the same microprocessor-based overcurrent control used in S&C Vista® Underground Distribution Switchgear. This proven reliable device offers special, customizable “coordinating” speed time-current characteristic curves that provide complete coordination with upstream relays and downstream fuses. Conventional “E” and “K” speed curves are available too.

  • S&C Remote Supervisory Vista® Underground
    S&C’s Vista Underground Distribution Switchgear provides a major advancement in operating simplicity and safety for medium-voltage switchgear....

  • Conventional elbow-connected switchgear requires that operating personnel move, test, and ground cables during routine operations. Such procedures are awkward and time consuming, and—most importantly—personnel are not fully isolated from medium voltage once a cable is removed from its bushing.

    Vista UDS introduces a new level of safety and simplicity by eliminating the need for cable handling during routine operations. It’s all made possible by Vista gear’s numerous innovations, including:

    • Simpler, safer, one-person operation. No cable handling or high-voltage exposure during switching, grounding or cable testing. Cuts cost through smaller crews, quicker operation
    • Site gear without compromising aesthetics. Pleases customers and saves money through reduced trenching, shorter cable runs
    • Up to six switches and single- or three-phase tripping fault interrupters. Saves money by handling more loads per unit
    • Superior coordination, flexibility, reliability. Innovative TCCs can be optimized using a PC. No knobs or dials to challenge security
    • Exclusive arc-resistant construction meets requirements of IEC Standard 298, Appendix AA
    • Contamination- and corrosion-proof. Sealed SF6 design handles any environment . . . even subsurface
    • Consistent operating practices. Same gear for subsurface, vault, and pad-mounted applications. Cuts inventory and operator-training cost
    • Easily upgraded to SCADA operation

  • VacuFuse™ Self-Resetting Interrupter
    The NEW VacuFuse™ Self-Resetting Interrupter is the first of its kind in lateral protection. This device allows utilities to tackle temporary faults that lead to permanent outages at the end of a utility’s lateral lines....

  • The VacuFuse™ Self-Resetting Interrupter eliminates nuisance fuse operations at the grid’s edge and drastically reduces unnecessary maintenance expenses. Industry data show that up to 70% of overhead distribution transformer fuse operations are classified as nuisance outages, where no other repair work is needed aside from fuse replacement. These instances are typically caused by a temporary fault.

    The VacuFuse™ Self-Resetting Interrupter determines whether a fault is temporary or permanent prior to operating.
