value
min. 2.200 mm
min. 100 mm + width of the widest cubicle
Table 3: Dimensions of the access doors
If the medium voltage switchgear does not contain any transformer cubicle(s), a
minimal door height of 2.000 mm will be sufficient. If a transformer cubicle is
included, the dimensions of the transformer always need to be taken into
account. For the correct dimensions of the different cubicles, please see:
“Dimensions & Weights”.
If the medium voltage switchgear is to be installed in basements, an entrance
hatch is required, whose length as well as width is at least 400 mm larger than
the dimensions of the largest cubicle or transformer.
1.1.2.6 Free passage in front of the cubicles
The free passage in front of the cubicles depends on the assembly of the medium voltage
switchgear.
If the medium voltage switchgear does not contain any transformer cubicle(s),
the minimum free passage is 800 mm. Medium voltage switchgear with a
transformer cubicle having a capacity of ≥ 1.000 KVA requires a free passage of
at least 2.000 mm.

3.2.1.4 Cleaning the interior
The entire interior of the DR-6C cubicles needs to be kept free from dust, moisture, and
other contaminations. This applies in particular to the cable compartment.
A clean and dust-free interior facilitates dielectric characteristics and limits the
leakage current to a minimum.

Disassemble the front panel. See "Disassembly of the front panel”
Remove the door. See "Accessing the cable compartment".
Clean the interior (including the cables) with a non-fluffy cloth and a non-corrosive
cleaning agent.
Rub the cleaned surfaces thoroughly dry to prevent surface oxidation, copper oxidation
and corrosion of the fitting materials.
Check all bolt-nut connections.
Fit the front panel.
Refit the door.
3.2.2
Switching the switches
Switches that are used rarely or never, need to be switched at least every two years to
check the functioning of the mechanical components. See "Operation".

Replacing the fuse protectors (T-function)
The fuses in DR-6C T-function must be replaced at least every 10 operational years, or
sooner if a repair task is necessary in this function (e.g. after one of the fuses was tripped.)
Always replace all three HRC fuses at the same time, even when only one of
them is tripped.

Unpacking
The DR-6C cubicles are by default wrapped in protective foil and secured on a euro pallet.
The most appropriate place to unpack the cubicle is of course the final installation area.
• Cut the straps used to secure the cubicle onto the pallet.
• Carefully remove the protective foil.
• Examine the delivery note to ensure that the cubicle is complete.
• Check the cubicle for possible (transport) damage.
• Carefully lift the cubicle off the pallet.
If any parts are missing or damaged, contact the conveyor or SGC - SwitchGear
Company nv. Seriously damaged cubicles must always be returned to SGC SwitchGear Company nv.
By request, cubicles are equipped with lifting lugs. If those are used, use suitable lifting &
hoisting machinery, in perfect condition and with sufficient hoisting capacity only.
Observe the applicable safety precautions. The handling and operating of
hoisting or lifting machinery is restricted to experienced staff within the visible
and shouting range of the operator of the hoisting or lifting machinery.
•
•
Remove the pallet.
Remove the door.
o Turn the locking latch (middle, top of the door).
o Grab the handle to the door with both hands.
o Carefully lift the door out.
DR-6C cubicles are equipped with a load break switch and an earthing switch are
by default delivered in the position: “load break switch open – earthing switch
closed”. In this position, the door is always removable.
•
•
Place the removed door where there is no risk of damage.
Repeat the steps above for each functional unit.
After the used packing materialhas been disposed in accordance with the applicable
directives, the installation of the cubicles can begin.

DR-6C CUBICLES AND THE ENVIRONMENT
4.1
Packing materials
Packing materials consist mainly of:
• (Untreated) wood
• Plastic strips
• Plastic film
Contact the local public cleaning department for the details of recycling or an
environmentally friendly way of processing the packing materials
Tender the packing material as instructed (separated)..
In Belgium, Euro-pallets need to be returned to SGC - SwitchGear Company nv
after the installation of the cubicles.
4.2
Disposal of the cubicles
With regards to reusing electrical components, SF6-gas (sulphur hexafluoride) filled
switchgear material can be returned to SGC - SwitchGear Company nv at the end of its life
span or when damaged.
On consultation, complete DR-6cubiclescan also be returned. If this is not possible, the
cubicles must be processed in an environmentally friendly way. Contact the local
sanitation services for possible recycling and tender the material in the prescribed manner
(separated).
4.3
Recuperation of SF6 gas
The recuperation of SF6-gas in medium-voltage cubicles of the DR-6C type, concerns the
gas-filled compartment with integrated load break switche RV-50. The stainless steel tank
contains a gaseous volume of 0,342m³ with a pressure of 1.5 bar absolute at 20°C. Taking
into account the dimensions and the volume of the gas, users are advised to have the
recycling of gas-filled components done, at the end of the life-cycle, by a specialized
company.
In this case, the user will take into account the local regulations with regards to transport.
Insofar as possible, the user will denote the predictable state of decomposition of the gas,
in order to be able to provide adequate treatment.
At end of the lifespan (usually 30 years), the decomposition degree of the gas will be
considered as minor (see Table 1 – section 6 IEC 61634). The customer can also consult
SGC - SwitchGear Company nv in order to recycle or recuperate the SF6 gas.
