Schneider Electric unveiled its switchgear that doesn’t use sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) gas.
The company unveiled its eco-friendly switchgear lineup AirSet at a press conference in Seoul on Thursday.
Fluoride is widely used in the semiconductor sector to insulate heat but is harmful to the environment due to its highest carbon emission.
China has already banned its use while Europe is set to do so as well.
The AirSet lineup includes GM, RM and SM models. They use shunt vacuum interruption technology to use the iar instead of SF6 gas for insulation.
Schneider Electric is aiming to win over global chipmakers with its new equipment.
The company said it was promoting its lineup to chipmakers in South Korea and Taiwan.
