Network protectors are special self-contained air power breaker units having a full complement of current, potential and control transformers, as well as relay functions to protect the integrity of the low voltage network bus. The network protector can be in NEMA® housing, submersible housing, or suitable for mounting within a low voltage switchgear assembly.
Network protectors are mainly used by utilities around the world. They are configured in either a spot or a grid network. Most installations of network protectors are in underground vaults and require a submersible enclosure. Commercial applications exist for those that require highly reliable, stable power.
