S&C's IntelliRupter PulseCloser is a breakthrough in distribution system protection. This unitized package of fault-interrupting and control components can operate as a stand-alone fault interrupter or, with appropriate options, can be integrated into a SCADA system and/or an S&C IntelliTeam® SG Automatic Restoration System.
IntelliRupter features S&C's revolutionary PulseClosing Technology™ - a unique means for verifying that the line is clear of faults before initiating a close operation. Pulseclosing is superior to conventional reclosing. It greatly reduces stress on system components, as well as voltage sags experienced by customers upstream of the fault.
IntelliRupter offers outstanding protection for 60-Hz systems through 38 kV, and 50-Hz systems through 24 kV. It provides full live-switching performance under all ice conditions ... circuit making, circuit breaking, and pulseclosing are accomplished within the interrupters; there are no external moving parts. IntelliRupter is available as a pole-mounted overhead version, or the new Pad-Mounted version for underground distribution systems.
