Spacial SF seismic solutions


Schneider Electric offers a range of LV earthquake resistant floor-standing
switchboards. The Spacial range is among these, with an answer to each type of
project for different seismic risk zones.

From weak to strong earthquakes:


Automation & Control switchboards.
The standard Spacial SF with dimensions 2000 H 3 800 W 3 600 D has been
tested to guarantee the right performance on seismic risk up to UBC zone 3.
Industrial 19" Electronic applications.
Standard Spacial SF with dimensions 2000 H 3 600 W 3 800 D and with a 19"
fixed rack configuration suitable for seismic risk up to UBC zone 3.
LV power distribution up to 3200A.
Standard Spacial SFP is tested to perform up to UBC zone 3.

For very strong earthquakes:


Automation & Control and 19" rack applications.
Spacial SF 5G performs up to UBC zone 4 thanks to its reinforced structure,
special panel fixation and locking system.
LV power distribution up to 3200 A.
Spacial SFP 5G performs up to UBC zone 4, also thanks to its reinforce structure,
special panel fixation and locking system.

All tests have been performed according to the following technical regulations:
EDF CRT 91 C 112 00, Nuclear. EDF (French Electricity Board) technical
specification.
IEC 61587-2, 60917 & 60297-2.

Spacial SF 5G

Spacial SF 5G & Spacial SFP 5G


Spacial SF 5G and Spacial SFP 5G have been designed to withstand earthquakes
up to UBC zone 4. The two tested configurations, automation & control and LV
power distribution, enable it to be certified for nuclear applications.

This new design is based on the following principles:

Reinforced cross
PB501885

Two reinforced crosses guarantee the mechanical withstand of the structure.

Panel fixations
PB501886

Fixation systems that avoid loosening of screws.

Security locking system


PB501887

PB501888

EDF-certified seismic locking system.


Specific bars and handle to avoid accidental door opening under severe vibration
conditions.

Reinforced plinths
