The VCPW-HD medium-voltage circuit breaker by Eaton are designed to protect transformers, capacitor banks, busbar sections, and cables. Courtesy: EatonEaton Corp.’s VCPW-HD medium-voltage vacuum circuit breaker is designed for utility, industrial, and commercial applications. The new 38 kV circuit breaker is engineered to provide reliable and robust circuit protection in a compact and reliable package. The VCPW-HD breakers are designed to protect transformers, capacitor banks, motors, busbar sections, and cable. The compact medium-voltage circuit breakers are engineered to withstand demanding environmental conditions, and are suitable for high altitude, shock, vibration, and high ambient temperatures. The VCPW-HD is engineered to reliably switch normal load currents and high-stress fault currents. The compact, modular design has dielectric strength with solid insulation that is encapsulated in epoxy resin material, eliminating live conductors in the breaker cell.
