Table 3.2-23: Technical data of NXPLUS C

The compact NXPLUS C is the medium-voltage circuitbreaker switchgear that made gas insulation with the proven vacuum switching technology economical in its class. The NXPLUS C is used for secondary and primary distribution systems up to 24 kV, up to 31.5 kA and up to 2,500 A. It can also be supplied as double-busbar switchgear in a back-to-back arrangement (see catalog HA35.41). Performance features Design verified according to IEC 62271-200 Sealed pressure system with SF6 filling for the entire service life Safe-to-touch enclosure and standardized connections for plug-in cable terminations Loss of service continuity category for switchgear: – Without HV HRC fuses: LSC 2 1-pole insulated and screened busbar 3-pole gas-insulated switchgear vessels with three-position switch and circuit-breaker Operating mechanisms and transformers are located outside the switchgear vessel and are easily accessible Metal-enclosed, partition class PM
