More than 30 million units of medium-voltage switchgear installed worldwide use sulfur hexafluoride (SF6
), a potent greenhouse gas. Eliminating the use of SF6
is a significant step toward safer, more environmentally friendly switches. This paper discusses how, beyond boosting safety, an innovative new SF6
