- Ships fully assembled and factory tested with 5 psig SF6 gas
(bushings may be removed for export transit)
Options and accessories
- Condition monitoring with the Circuit Breaker Sentinel (CBS)
- Density monitor and temperature-compensated pressure gauge
directly-mounted on each tank
- Extra creep and/or extra strike bushings for special applications
- Silicone rubber composite bushings
- Tank heaters for operation in ambient temperatures below
-30 C
- High seismic designs
The 123-145 PM-B breaker is designed with interrupter,
mechanism, and bushing technology and expertise that have
been field proven on ABB SF6 dead tank breakers since 1992.
The breaker features interrupting performance through 63
kA without shunt capacitors for short line fault performance,
a high performance interrupter which complies with IEEEs
new C2 capacitive current switching requirements, high
performance interrupters which reduce the potential for
overvoltages, a compact, fully-integrated spring-hydraulic
operating mechanism, and one-piece interrupter assembly
as well as externally accessible current transformers which
enable simple field change-out.

HMB-2 mechanism
A type HMB-2 spring-hydraulic mechanism, located within the
control cabinet, provides the driving force to gang-operate the
breakers high performance interrupters.
Service
ABB HV Service offers an extensive range of available field services,
from technical assistance to turn-key installation, which can
dramatically reduce construction costs and speed time to commercial
operation.
