When the crank for actuation of disconnector or earthing switch has not
been removed, or if the interrogation slide is open, the push-button ON of
the circuit breaker cannot be pressed or the ON pulse is interrupted.
In bus section panels with two interrogation slides, the following features
are locked:
Both interrogation slides cannot be opened simultaneously.
The interrogation slides are blocked depending on the position of the
disconnector or earthing switch (see interlock tables).

6.2.2 Electromagnetic interlocks


Electromagnetic blocking coils can be used for inter-panel as well as
intrapanel
interlocks:
the insertion openings for disconnector and earthing switch by the
interrogation
slide are prevented from being released;
the circuit-breakers ON and OFF push-buttons are blocked.
the cable compartment cover

Important:

In case of failure or absence of the supply voltage, all electrical


interlocks are in their blocked position. Measure: Re-establish
supply voltage.
If no blocking coils to prevent maloperation are used,
mechanical lock-out with padlocks must be provided (see
section 6.2.3).
The switchgear specific wiring diagramm shows detailed
informations about the used electromechanic interlocks.

6.2.3 Mechanical lock-out mechanisms with

entire service life (see also page 14 ).

Switching units
The components in the cladded high-voltage parts of the panel (vacuum
circuitbreaker, disconnector and earthing switch) do not require any
maintenance either.

Gas tank
The pressure tanks are made of stainless, non-magnetic steel.

Warning!
Neither drill holes into nor open gas tanks. Risk of loss of
insulating gas.
The tank must be kept free from any deposits of external metal.
Any risk of pitting corrosion must be avoided.

Drive mechanisms/covers
Drive mechanisms and covers outside of the enclosure are corrosionprotected. Damage to the paint, scratches and deterioration must be
repaired immediately to avoid corrosion.

Panels
The switchgear panels must be checked visually at regular intervals,
depending on the stress they are subject to during operation and the
operating conditions, at least, however, every 4 years.
If dirt or condensation is detected, the panels must be cleaned
professionally. To this effect, only the cleaning agents which have been
approved by the manufacturer may be used (see page 40).

Warning!
Risk of injuries: The drives must not be disassembled
for service and maintenance work.
