TripSaver® II Cutout-Mounted Recloser
S&C’s TripSaver II Cutout-Mounted Recloser is the second generation of S&C TripSaver Dropout Recloser. It is a single-phase recloser, offered in system class voltage ratings of 15-kV and 25-kV. Being ideally suited for lateral circuits that frequently experience momentary fault interruptions, this Smart Grid solution eliminates the permanent outages which can result when lateral fuses operate in response to these temporary faults. It also eliminates the momentary interruptions on feeders in instances where the substation breaker is tripped to save the lateral fuse during a temporary fault.
TripSaver II is a self-powered, electronically controlled single-phase recloser using vacuum fault interrupter technology. It is available for installation in new or existing current-production (“-R10” or “-R11”) S&C or MacLean Power Systems Type XS Fuse Cutout Mountings. A two-insulator, branch-feeder style mounting is also available. TripSaver II requires no programming or batteries for back-up power.
