Cat Switchgear Offerings Help Mitigate Potential Outages

The benefit of Caterpillar’s vast experience in power generation is fully realized in its generator switchgear offering. Available from 600V through 15 kV, Cat paralleling switchgear provides a harmonized system solution by being able to integrate all elements of monitoring and control of a Cat generator set in a single-source package.


For the integration of Cat generator sets into a customer’s facility, Cat offers switchgear suitable for applications ranging from single standby/load management to multi-unit utility paralleling installations. In any of these cases, Cat switchgear can offer remote communication capabilities for monitoring and control of your total system.

Cat Switchgear employs a feature-rich microprocessor-based control system that is combined with an easy-to-use touchscreen operator interface panel. The entire system can be controlled from the switchgear-mounted touchscreen, or it can be controlled/monitored from a remote site through a personal computer.

Cat offers three standard switchgear products that can support a wide variety of applications or can provide a custom-designed system to meet your specific site’s needs as required:

  • XLM series products support transfer between the utility source and generator bus, as well as affording capability for parallel operation with the utility for load management applications.
  • The EGP series supports paralleling on an isolated generator bus and is commonly used in prime power or emergency standby systems.
  • LM series supports single unit paralleling with utility for load management and peak shaving applications.
