The OSM38 single pole automatic circuit reclosers are designed for use on single phase SWER overhead distribution lines as well as single phase SWER distribution substation applications for all voltage classes up to 38kV.
The OSM tanks are manufactured from stainless steel and powder coated a light grey colour.
The product is supplied complete with an RC control and communications cubicle. The RC10 control cubicle is a microprocessor based controller that provides all the protection, data logging and communications functions in a single device. The OSM has been designed for use as a stand alone device that is easily integrated into distribution automation and remote control schemes using the in-built communications capability.
The product has been extensively type tested by independent laboratories to ensure long life and reliability under the harshest environmental conditions. The OSM automatic circuit recloser is the only solid di-electric insulated recloser to provide controlled arc fault venting and the independent testing provides verification of this important safety feature.
The product uses technology developed and refined over the last decade.
The in-built user configurable distribution automation functionality can be used with or without a communications system and will reduce outage time and increase profitability in your network.
The OSM38 single pole automatic circuit reclosers incorporate a single vacuum interrupter inside an aromatic epoxy resin housing within an arc vented stainless steel tank respectively. This ensures the maximum in life and reliability with a fully insulated arrangement inside the long life housing.
Voltage is measured on both sides of the recloser using capacitively coupled screens. Current is measured using a current transformer.
The recloser mechanism is operated by a single coil magnetic actuator. The device is latched in the closed position by magnetic latching.
The recloser can be mechanically tripped using the yellow mechanical hook stick operated lever in the base of the tank. The device Open/Close indication, also located in the base of the tank, uses a green ‘0’ to designate contacts are open and a red ‘I’ to designate contacts closed.
The status of the recloser is also reflected by a microswitch connected to the control electronics. The electronic circuit board where the microswitch is fitted has no active elements which dramatically improves impulse immunity.
The main circuit bushings are manufactured from aromatic epoxy resin to a DIN profile which is then encapsulated with a silicon rubber bushing boot that provides the necessary creepage for a high pollution rating.
The magnetic actuator is operated from stored energy charged capacitors located in the RC10 control cubicle. There is a rating plate located in the base of the tank that provides tank rating details in accordance with the requirements of ANSI C37.60. There is an earthing point on the side of the tank.
The OSM is supplied with tin plated brass cable connectors on each bushing. The cable connectors can be supplied in the form of tunnel terminals to suit cable up to 260mm2 or 2 hole NEMA cable palms.
