The new generation of high-voltage circuit breakers is based on over 40 years of experience in the production of medium-voltage vacuum interrupters and over 5.5 million units delivered.
Siemens has introduced this proven technology to high-voltage power networks above 72.5 kV and has been gaining operational experience in European networks since 2010.
Most important characteristics and advantages:
Technology based on 40 years of experience and 5.5 million delivered vacuum tubes
Perfect for low temperature applications
Completely type-tested acc. to latest international standards
Maintenance free and low operational costs throughout the entire lifecycle due to “sealed for life“ interrupter unit; minimum efforts for gas handling
No CO2e (equivalent) emissions
Switch medium (vacuum) with greenhouse potential (GWP) = 0
No CO2e emissions during operation, maintenance or recycling
No emission or emission compensation costs throughout the service life
