ZW38-55 Vacuum Circuit Breaker

The ZW38-55 vacuum circuit breaker is an outdoor single-phase bipolar high-voltage switching device that features simple structure, strong breaking capability, complete operating functions and no explosive hazard. With the rated voltage and frequency are 55kV and 50Hz respectively, this single phase circuit breaker is suitable to open and close loads as well as break fault current in the AT traction power supply system for electrified railway.

Especially applicable to occasions requiring frequent operations, this vacuum circuit breaker adopts vacuum interrupter as the arc extinguishing component. A spring-loaded cam linkage mechanism is used for operation. The energy storage as well as the opening and closing operations can be carried out manually or electrically. The electrical operation is controlled closely or remotely.

This vacuum circuit breaker has been used in Fujian, Guangdong, Hubei, Jiangxi, Shaanxi, and Heilongjiang provinces. The market evaluation is good. Silicone grease is adopted for the external insulation of our product, so the SF6 gas does not leak and there are basically no after-sales quality problems.
