    Walk in outdoor metal clad fused switchgear

    Dumb question- but does such a beast exist? Or is all fused outdoor gear external access doors?
    I'm in over my head...

    It is not a dumb question; strange, unusual, and possibly bizarre but not dumb.

    You do get some interesting ideas popping into that mind of yours.

    Unique problems require out of the box thinking. Same with saving on $$$$

    I know about the draw out breakers- but not everything 100% fuse. My plan is to mount the transformer protection (DTT and such) on the other side of the enclosure.

    if you have all fuse protection what are tripping with the relaying?

    The supply transformer's 34.5kv primary which is outside the 13.8kv gear. I want to avoid a separate control hut. Figure I might cram everything into one.

    Unless the transformer primary gets fused also
