Combining the unique requirements of vacuum interrupter technology with a stored energy mechanism, the AMVAC is truly the next generation of circuit breaker. Using a flux-shifting device with integral permanent magnets, the AMVAC mechanism has just one moving part. Having only open and close coils, an electronic controller, and capacitors for energy storage, the AMVAC circuit breaker mechanism is capable of 100,000 operations. The simple design increases reliability, reduces moving elements, and reduces the need for spare parts and maintenance.
Using solid state electronics and fiber optic sensor technology, the REA relay is the most advanced arc mitigation equipment available. The REA system detects light and overcurrent from an arc flash and sends a signal to trip in ≤ 2.5 ms. By reducing the clearing time with the REA, arc flash incident energy is reduced by up to 80%, and PPE requirements may be reduced. Ultimately, the REA relay provides superior equipment protection and reduces the risk of injury or death to operator or maintenance personnel.
