Title: SWITCHGEAR SYSTEM AND SYSTEM FOR PROVIDING ACCESS TO A SWITCHGEAR SYSTEM FOR INSPECTION BY AN AUTOMATED MECHANISM
Abstract:
A switchgear system is configured for inspection by an automated mechanism. The switchgear system includes a switchgear enclosure; a switchgear compartment disposed inside the switchgear enclosure; and a portal disposed on the switchgear enclosure and operative to provide access to the switchgear compartment through the portal when opened, and to prevent access to the switchgear compartment through the portal when closed, the portal including a first access member. The portal is constructed to be opened by the automated mechanism using a second access member constructed to engage the first access member. The portal is constructed to be not opened by a human without use of the second access member or another mechanism constructed to engage the first access member.
