Title: MEDIUM VOLTAGE SWITCHGEAR CONSTRUCTION USING SYMMETRIC SHEET METAL PARTS AND PANELS TO BUILD COMPARTMENT ASSEMBLIES AND SUBASSEMBLIES
Abstract:
Side panels for a compartment of a switchgear include a first panel structure and a second panel structure that is identical to the first panel structure. Each panel structure has a body with symmetric surface features in the body. Certain of the surface features are offset from a plane of symmetry of the body. The first panel structure is constructed and arranged to define a left side of the compartment and the second panel structure, upon proper orientation, is constructed and arranged to define an opposing, right side of the compartment. The side walls are therefore interchangeable with one single production process and can thereafter be stacked and stored in stock designated merely as side walls for the cabinet, allowing a simplified logistics and assembly.
