Services for Circuit Breakers & Generator Circuit Breakers

Circuit breakers automatically protect installations against phase-to-phase short circuits as well as phase-to-earth short circuits and optimize the reliability and efficiency of operating networks. Operators require cost-effective solutions to avoid unscheduled downtime, major failure and the subsequent penalties.

GE provides a full range of services on the three different types of insulating technologies: minimum oil, air blast and SF6 circuit breakers.
