Parvalux manufactures a wide range of switchgear motors. Using a geared motor to operate switchgear in a high voltage circuit enables remote control of the circuit breaker, which is important when working at scale. Remote operation of hazardous equipment also reduces the health and safety risk to personnel.

Rail networks and energy distribution infrastructure, such as the national grid, need to be available 24/7. If component failure compromises the network, the impact can be significant. That’s why Parvalux motor drive systems are the first choice for leading high voltage switchgear manufacturers. Our products are reliable and work when they need to. Parvalux powers a range of products around the world in key sectors from industrial automation, to transport and logistics. For example, our Viper3 motor is trusted to power the wipers on the largest ocean-going vessels, high-speed locomotives and even the NASA CT-2 crawler at Cape Canaveral. Parvalux customers trust our products to perform, whatever the situation.

Our standard switchgear motors are fully customizable in our UK-based factories and we can quickly develop drives that are specific to your available space envelope. We work with our customers’ engineers and our design team is fluent in the very latest SolidWorks 3D CAD software.

Parvalux motors and gearboxes are also available through the global maxon distribution network. Your local maxon office can be found here.
