Vacuum Circuit Breaker Panels

Electricfield Switchgear offers H.V.Switchgear panels in metal clad enclosure fully extensible & with horizontal draw out vacuum circuit breakers (Single / multi lineup). It consists of manual / motor operated spring charged mechanism of stored energy type. In the closed state of the breaker, the closing springs can perform the duty operation.

Facility is also available for hand charging the springs in the event of supply failure. The closing spring is charged by the motor in less than 15 second. Electrical anti-pumping feature is also provided.

The mechanism is trip free and suitable for rapid re-closing. The vacuum interrupters are capable of switching capacitive currents and small magnetising current.

Electricfield Switchgear Vacuum circuit breaker panel consists of 4 chambers namely

  • Breaker chamber.
  • Metering & relay chamber.
  • Bus bar chamber.
  • CT/PT (duly type tested), cable chamber.

Breaker Chamber
This consists of VCB mounted on a trolley, horizontal draw out with self aligning type moving contacts. Fixed contacts are covered automatically by movable shutters while draw out the vcb, to ensure no direct contacts with live parts is possible, thus ensuring the safety of operator.

Metering & Relay Chamber
This consists of all meters, protective relays, switches, indicating lamps etc, and wired as per the specification of the clients.

Bus Bar Chamber
The switchgear panels are provided with single/double bus bars with high electrical grade copper/Aluminum depends on the current rating. The 3 phase bus bars are supported on strong epoxy insulation and fixed delta configuration which minimized electro mechanical stresses under short circuit conditions. Bus bars ill be provided with sleeve insulation.

CT/PT (Electricfield Make), Cable Chamber
The CT/PT (Type Tested) & Cable Chamber is located at the rear side of the panel and ready access is available by opening the rear cover with safety weld mesh. It is also possible to mount core balance CTs with in the cubicle. The panels are powder coated with epoxy base paint to give an aesthetically leasing appearance. The pre treatment process is done by seven tank method. The paint shall be as per the requirement of clients.

Outdoor VCB Kiosk

Electricfield Switchgear Offers outdoor Vacuum Circuit Breaker Kiosk can be directly installed on a plinth. The power supply can be taken either through roof bushings or cable box or a combination of roof bushing and cable box. The CT/ PTs and relays are in - built in the metal enclosure.

Earthing Options
Earthing through a draw-out earthing truck with solid links on the bus/feeder side.


  • Interlocks are provided such that breaker closing is prevented in intermediate position between service and test/isolated positions.
  • Mechanical interlocks to prevent truck racking in/out when breaker is in closed position.
  • Breaker can be inserted only when control plug & socket in position.
  • Control plug & socket can be removed only in isolated position.
  • Mechanical castle interlock with upstream/downstream isolators can be provided on request.
