What happens if you have a Selectively Coordinated system?

  • Aids in continuous operation of critical circuits
  • Reduces or eliminates blackouts
  • Increases safety and reliability of the system
  • Minimizes damage and downtime
  • Increases productivity
  • Speeds restoration pf faulted of faulted circuits
  • Reduces arc-flash hazards
