Kyle Types D and DV single-phase, hydraulically controlled automatic circuit reclosers provide reliable, economical overcurrent protection for distribution systems.
|Ratings||Type D reclosers are designed for 15 kV system applications.|
|Ratings||Type DV reclosers are designed for 15-34.5 kV system applications.|
- Types D and DV reclosers can sectionalize single-phase branches of three-phase feeders. The high continuous current and interrupting capacity of the Types D and DV reclosers enables them to be used on heavily loaded circuits with high available fault currents.
- Types D and DV reclosers provide single-phase load protection, tripping, and automatic clearing of temporary faults. They are compact and self-contained in operation. Types D and DV reclosers can be easily coordinated with circuit breakers, sectionalizers, fuses, and other reclosers in the distribution system.
- Tripping is initiated by a series-trip coil that releases the stored-energy trip mechanism when an overcurrent occurs. Current-carrying and interrupting capacities depend on the current rating of the series trip coil. A closing solenoid supplies the energy for contact closing and also stores energy in the trip mechanism.
- These reclosers use oil as the arc-interrupting medium.
