This electrically operated vacuum breaker was designed and built by Power Precision to install in existing 5kV DHP switchgear.
Advantages of this new 5kV Vacuum Breaker include
- Electrically operated mechanism
- eliminates high maintenance mechanical mechanisms.
- ideal for frequently operated circuits such as motor feeders.
- lighter weight for easier handling
- faster operating time reducing arc flash energy.
- Vacuum enclosed contacts contain arcs and improve reliability.
- No asbestos containing arc chutes.
- Mechanical and electrical interlocks mate with existing switchgear.
- Upgrade one breaker at a time on scheduled outages with no additional downtime.
