- Vacuum Circuit Breaker Ring Main Unit

Aegis Vacuum Circuit Breaker Ring Main Unit


Designed for secondary distribution networks up to 24kV, and rated currents up to 630A, the Aegis range of vacuum circuit breaker ring main units (RMU) provides a comprehensive series of solutions which lend itself to numerous applications for utilities, compact secondary substations, mining and commercial buildings. It is available for both indoor and outdoor environments protected against the harshest of conditions without the need for additional housings. Used at the secondary distribution level primarily for distribution of power and for the protection of local transformers. It is suitable for heavy duty operation with a long service life and virtually zero maintenance. It can be used either as a freestanding unit or installed in compact mini-substations and kiosks.

Design
The Aegis ring main unit is available with up to 4 functions in one common tank. It can be congured with vacuum circuit breaker units or a combination of vacuum circuit breakers and fault-make load break switches.

Options
Circuit Breaker Protection
Circuit breaker protection can be achieved via ring core current transformers in combination with Time Limit Fuse or a range of protection relays.

Stainless Steel Gas Enclosure


Highest quality stainless steel switching enclosure.

Cable Boxes
Internal arc tested cable boxes are available for IEC 62271 specications. Interlocked cable boxes are also provided as options.

Housing
Fully treated, to resist weather and pollution attacks. Outdoor units are provided with a hinged, weatherproof and lockable cover.

Automation
Pre-wired for automation. Rotary actuators can be easily and rapidly tted on site whilst the unit is in service no access is required to the internal workings of the Aegis.

Circuit Breaker
Comprises 3 vacuum interrupters for fault-make, fault-break rating.

Remote Trip Coil Push to trip Earth Fault Indicator

Switches
Switching available via single break 3 position switches providing ON, OFF and EARTH positions.

Operation
Operated via manually independent mechanisms mounted external to the gas enclosure, status is clearly identied through mimic diagram on front panel.

Safety
Hermetically sealed, touch safe units ensures maximum operator safety. Mimic diagram representation minimising language issues. Voltage Presence Indicator System (VPIS) clearly identies when circuit is isolated from supply.

Test Facilities
Fully interlocked test facilities are provided in accordance with IEC62271 requirements, standard on ring switch, optional on circuit breaker.

Interlocks
Positive, intuitive, clear and simple safety interlocks are incorporated on all switch positions to prevent mal-operation.

Quality
ISO 9000 quality systems approved. Proven technology. FMEA (failure mode evaluation analysis) designed.

Padlocks
All switch and selector positions can be padlocked to prevent unauthorised access
