2.2 Benefits
Advantages for switchgear manufacturers
Compact, modular design
Simple and efficient mounting due to incoming plug-in contact
High packing density in the field
Cable connection with clamps or lugs
Can be mounted in different control cabinet depths
Comprehensive range of accessories
Advantages for users
Conversion, retrofitting, and replacement without switching off the switchgear
Dead-state fuse replacement
Maintenance free
High personnel safety
Operating handle can be locked in OFF position
Clear and unambiguous switch position indicator
2.3 Application
The plug-in 3NJ62 switch disconnectors with fuses are installed in low-voltage distribution
boards where a minimum amount of space is available for a maximum number of cable
ducts to the power distribution. They can be easily fitted in all common control cabinets
(minimum depth: 400 mm).
The plug-in 3NJ62 switch disconnectors with fuses are available for rated uninterrupted
currents of 160 A to 630 A. LV HRC fuse links according to IEC 60269-1 / EN 60269-1 or BS
fuse links according to BS 88 provide overload and short-circuit protection up to 690 V DC.
The switch disconnectors can be retrofitted at any time with auxiliary switches, an ammeter
(48 mm x 48 mm), and up to four current transformers, with no extra space required. For
installation in control cabinets with a depth > 400 mm, the mounting depth of the
disconnectors can be increased by 200 mm using a contact extension. Further installation
accessories, such as guide rails and blanking covers for empty sections, complete the
product range.

2.6 Design
Compact and modular design
All sizes fit busbar systems with a 185 mm center-to-center clearance, and have the same
width and depth as well as a uniform 50 mm grid with regard to mounting height (50, 100, or
200 mm). This enables an in-line disconnector panel to be set up with any combinations of
different sizes.
Subsequent replacement of in-line disconnectors of different sizes is easy. Furthermore, the
user-friendly hinged handle is retractable in both the ON and the OFF state, so that the
compact design is retained in both switch positions.
On device versions with a motorized operating mechanism the motor is integrated in the
contour of the housing.

Functions

3.1 Mode of operation
Operation
The plug-in switch disconnectors are fitted with a snap-action mechanism and are switched
by turning the handle approx. 45. Once actuated, the handle is folded against the front
panel in the ON or OFF position for safety reasons.
Indication
A unique switch position indication is output by the indicator in the inspection window of the
in-line disconnector (ON "I" = red, OFF "O" = green). The switch position indicator is
mechanically linked to the moving switching contacts.
Voltage test
In the event of a voltage test on the fuse links, the transparent insert in the front panel is
opened.
Personnel safety
The switch disconnectors are type tested according to IEC 60947-3 and have degree of
protection IP41 in the operating state.
The special locking mechanism on the handle ensures that the in-line disconnector must be
switched off before it is possible to open the cover and remove the fuses. A switchgear key
according to DIN 43668 is also required to open the cover.
Disconnection during the switching operation (snap-action mechanism) is implemented
before and after the fuse link. This ensures that, if power is supplied over the busbars or via
the cable connecting side, the fuse links are in a dead state when switched off.
Locking
In the OFF position, the handle can be padlocked (padlock : 6 mm) to protect against
unintentional restarting.

3NJ62
System Manual, 10/2008, 711 6114-02 DS 01 15
3.2 Electronic fuse monitoring
Function
The electronic fuse monitor (EFM) indicates an alarm (fault signaling unit) if one, two, or
three fuses are tripped.
Two internal, isolated contacts (1x NO + 1 x NC) are switched in order to output a remote
indication (fault signal) in the event of a tripped fuse. The fuse monitor supplies itself with
power, in other words there is no external supply.

Meaning of the display
Green LED in the front display illuminated: All fuses OK.
Red LED illuminated: Fuse blown.
The display only works correctly if voltage is present at L2 and L3 as a minimum.
The EFM is automatically reset after a fuse has been replaced and the green LED is
illuminated.
The EFM is fitted in the factory with an 18-pole multi-function plug.

Current transformers are not allowed to be operated at no load because this could lead to
hazardous voltages at the terminals.
If four current transformers are used, the fourth transformer is in phase L3 for size 00, phase
L2 for size 1, or phase L1 for sizes 2 and 3.
If the fourth current transformer has size 00 or 1, the multi-function plug cannot be fitted
because there is not enough space. A current transformer cannot be installed in the N
conductor of 4-pole devices.

5.3 Configuration rules
Configuration rules for ventilated SIVACON cubicles with 3NJ62 switch disconnectors with fuses
Equipment in the cubicle, from top to bottom, decreasing from size 3 to size 00
Recommended maximum configuration per cubicle: approx. 2/3, including reserve
Disconnectors of size 2 and 3 should - where possible - be distributed between different
cubicles
Summation current of all feeders in the cubicle: max. 2000 A
Rated currents of device sizes = 0.8 x IN of the biggest fuse link
Rated currents of smaller fuse links of one size = 0.8 x IN of the fuse link
For the fully equipped cubicle, the rated diversity factor according to IEC 60439-1 applies.
Failure to comply with these instructions may lead to premature ageing of fuses and
uncontrolled tripping as a result of local overheating.
All data refers to an ambient temperature of the switchgear of 35C (24-hour average value).
Rated diversity factor according to IEC 60439-1

Number of main circuits Rated diversity factor
2 and 3 0.9
4 and 5 0.8
6 to 9 0.7
10 or more 0.6
Rated current of the fuse links
Summation current of all feeders in the cubicle 2000 A = 0.8 x IN of fuse
