In our last newsletter "special edition", we have shared a preliminary review of the new MCC drawer solutions which can improve operator safety.

You have been interested in this review and we received a significant number of feedback, which confirm that:

  • MCC drawer solutions with high safety level are commonly used in process industries like Oil&Gaz and Mining, and also more and more used in Hospitals, Data Centers...

  • in these critical sites, the solution is generally MCC withdrawable, often in form 4, and with interlocking functions to minimize the risks of arcing when inserting/disconnecting the drawers.

  • it is considered as a safe solution if properly designed, and if maintenance workers are properly trained and have to follow strict working procedures

  • What surprised us is the feedback which seems to indicate that maintenance operators are less and less qualified, even on critical sites

    Do you agree with that ?

    > NO

    > if YES, according to you, what would be the best solution to compensate the loss of competence:
    (Choose only one of these solutions, best compromise for you. They are sorted from the highest to lowest extra-cost)
