Introduction of automatic switch 3 phase U type (Recloser Schnieder)

Solid dielectric insulated U type automatic switch (Recloser), demonstrating Schneider Electric's commitment to continuously develop and improve the product to improve the features of traditional reclosers, plus functions for automation, control, and remote monitoring at present and future. 

Overview of U type automatic switch

The U type self-switch uses vacuum cut-off chamber coated by epoxy insulated porcelain tubes, instead of using oil and gas insulators.


The cutter mechanism is housed in a 316 stainless steel housing with a stainless steel lid.

The U type circuit breaker is controlled and supervised by the COMPACT or ULTRA ADVC Control Cabinet.


Enclosed by a 304 (COMPACT) or 316 (ULTRA) stainless steel housing, the ADVC is an electronic controller with an Operator Interface (OI) that monitors the cutter and provides protection and measurement functions, control and communication. Connected via the control cable, the ADVC switch and control cabinet can form a remote control and monitoring Recloser.


The cutting machine is controlled by a magnetic actuator which creates a closing and opening effect. Electrical switching occurs when a control pulse is sent through an on / off actuator from a charge in the ADVC control cabinet. When closed, the breaker is latched magnetically. The push springs are pressed up to maintain contact on the contacts.
