(1) 75 kV Bil only for fixed V12 contactor. For UniGear switchboards and for PowerCube and CBE
enclosures, insulation level 75 BIL is available on request.
(2) Rated service current defined for fixed contactors; for the contactors coordinated with fuses,
the limits are as follows:
- 7.2 kV in ABB 250 A units with maximum fuse size (315 A)
- 12 kV in ABB 160A units with maximum fuse size (200 A).
(3) For the breaking capacity of the coordinated fuses, please see the following pages.
(4) Mechanical life (opening/closing cycles) 1,000,000.
(5) Mechanical life (opening/closing cycles) 250,000.
(6) Electrical life which can be obtained following the programmed maintenance plan in the product
instruction manual.
(7) Coordination is guaranteed with the types of fuses indicated on the following pages.
(8) Lower and upper limits.
(9) Fuses excluded (the maximum fuse size weighs 5.5 Kg).
(10) This is the current value determined by the intersection of the time-current trip curve of two
protection devices; in this case the fuse and any thermal protection relay.
(11) Surge arresters or RC filters must be installed.
