    W-Series Single Phase Recloser

    Pole-mounted reclosers up to 24kV (phase to ground)

    Lightweight, solid dielectric with vacuum arc interruption solution for medium voltage electrical distribution networks. Provides the latest protection technology in a highly reliable, low-maintenance Automatic Circuit Recloser (ACR).

    W-Series Single Phase Recloser
    • Features

      The W-Series single phase, pole-mounted auto recloser (or circuit breaker) was developed to achieve optimum performance and reliability, making use of the latest technology in solid dielectrics, vacuum interruption, and microelectronics. This device does not use any gas or oil Insulation. Instead, a cyclo-aliphatic epoxy bushing is used to insulate the vacuum interrupter. This type of construction results in a more lightweight unit. With an integrated CT and VT, the design is optimized for automation, remote control, data logging, and monitoring applications. The W-Series recloser is ideal for radial single phase circuits.

      • Rated voltages: 24kV (nominal phase to ground)
      • Rated short-circuit current: up to 6kA
      • Rated load current: up to 400A
      • 316 grade stainless steel tank
      • Single phase applications
      • 10,000 operations

      The recloser is sold with the ADVC-2 Controller Range.

      Controller features include :
      Protection, monitoring, metering, control, communications and power quality.




      Benefits
