Guaranteed lifetime

In addition to a safe connection, the Sicuro also enables switching the generator. The generator junction box delivered by Alfen requires no maintenance at all and has a guaranteed lifecycle of at least 50,000 switches; over ten times as more as traditional switches. Using a Sicuro therefore doesn’t only add to reliable generator switching, it also contributes to a significant saving on operational costs.

Unique solution

The product range of Sicuro junction boxes provides for maximum safety and continuity in connecting the generator. Furthermore, the Sicuro is a unique solution in the industry, as it combines various innovative elements:

  • A vibration-resistant cable connection
  • Maximum personal safety
  • Integrated surge protector to protect generator windings
  • Integrated voltage and electricity transformers
  • Circuit-breaker equipped for 50,000 switches without maintenance
  • Suitable for virtually all medium voltage generators
  • Independent synchronization of preceding medium voltage installation
  • Preceding medium voltage installation may be a more basic edition, leading to a cost reduction
  • High short circuit currents in a compact casing
  • Complies with all applicable international norms and standards
