Identical Performances to the standard N-Series (N38)

SF6 replaced with dry air at same pressure


General construction of tank remains unchanged
Components remain in a dry environment (no corrosion)
Use of Silicone rubber parts
Provides additional insulation due to the absence of SF6
Environment friendly

Capacitor discharge in Close solenoid,


attracting the Mechanism Plate upward,
Push rods force contact close and
latch tongues rest on trip bar.
Contacts are held in closed position
by latch tongues.

N-Series Terminal Designation


An N Series recloser has a:
1 side
And a
2 side

Bushings on each side are identified as


U
V
W

The six bushings are identified as


U1, V1, W1, U2, V2, W2

The bushing identifications do not designate


which phase is connected this is configurable
via software.
