Accessories

Eaton offers a variety of accessories to increase the reliability and availability of power capacitor installations. Opti-G fuse flippers come as standard equipment on substation bank assemblies and a line of Nature Guard wildlife protectors may be specified when required by special system needs. Also, these accessories can be suppled as OEM devices, allowing them to be specified as original equipment on assemblies not built by Eaton.
