VN2-24E
Medium-voltage Embedded Vacuum Circuit-breaker

Advanced techniques and capabilities

 The circuit-breaker VN2-24E is the newest equipment in the


voltage class of 24kV manufactured by CooperNature Electric
(Ningbo) Co., Ltd. It is universal used in power distributing and
transforming systems of power stations, power generators, and
secondary substations of mines, industries and infrastructures.

 The circuit-breaker VN2-24E has complete type specifications:


the rated voltage is 24kV, the rated current is up to 3150A and
the rated short circuit breaking current is up to 31.5kA.
Front View of VN2-24E
 The circuit-breaker VN2-24E is equipped with modularized spring
operating mechanism which has characteristic of more conve-
nient maintenance, rapider replacing of parts and more reliable
performance.

 The circuit-breaker VN2-24E adopts embedded poles that the


low resistance vacuum interrupter and the primary main elec-
trical circuit are cast in insulating cylinders by epoxy resin. This
structure make the breaker have more reliable insulation.

 The embedded poles of circuit-breaker VN2-24E have the tech-


nique of ventilation and convection. Besides the vacuum inter- Back View of VN2-24E
rupter is with low resistance. All of that reduce the power con-
sumption and the temperature rising due to the longtime run-
ning of circuit-breaker.

 The circuit-breaker VN2-24E can be used in 12kV power grid


and plateau regions with altitude up to 4500m. Its power fre-
quency withstand voltage is up to 65kV and the lightning im-
pulse withstand voltage is up to 125kV.

 The driving mechanisms of circuit-breaker VN2-24E are designed


by professionals in CooperNature and with characteristic of
VN2-24E/T1250
reliable closing performance, low impact force and longer
lifetime. The mechanical lifetime can be up to 20000 cycles.

 All of the mechanisms surface of circuit-breaker VN2-24E is


disposed with special process and lubricative technique. Not
only the rust-resistance capability is improved but also the op-
erating performance is ensured. The circuit-breaker is also ap-
plicable to humid and hot regions.

 The circuit-breaker VN2-24E has been through the whole type


test in accordance with the standards of GB and IEC. The prod-
uct 3150/31.5kA is the first through the type test in china.

Refined producing and manufacture

Ordering manufacture line for circuit-breaker


 The manufacture line for circuit-breaker assembly is the first in
China and is innovated by CooperNature and on basis of the
experience of current manufacturings. This line is designed ac-
cording to the structure, producing process and character of
circuit-breaker and each producing procedure is controlled and
monitored through computers. So the circuit-breaker has top
class performance.
Assembly Line for Circuit-breaker

Jigs and fixtures designed by self


 According to the need for producing process, there are lots of
jigs and fixtures specially used to assemble circuit-breakers and
designed by workers or professionals on the basis of their
experience. They do not only ensure the precision of circuit-
breaker assembly but also improve the assembling efficiency
and stability.

Assembly for the Underpan of Circuit-breaker

500 cycles mechanical test before out of factory


 There are about ten testing cubicles for mechanical test. For
each circuit-breaker prepared to be out of factory, 500 cycles
mechanical test must be done and the running status of cir-
cuit-breaker can be observed and noted by the testing cubicles.
If there are some faults the operators will solve them. So the
fault probability in prophase is be reduced and user can be at
ease to use them.
Testing Cubicles for Circuit-breaker

Complete performance testing facilities


 There are some imported performance testing facilities for each
circuit-breaker, both capabilities and parameters. Before circuit-
breaker is delivered to customer, it must be checked and tested
through the standard testing panel, which avoid the problem
during circuit-breaker being equipped with switchgear and also
ensure the products generalization and interchange.

Innovative product design


Damper with perfect performance
 Thanks to the refined damper with perfect performance and
the new cam gear with curvilinear design, the contacts rebound-
ing value during the breaker opening is reduced more and the
breaker can be opened reliably. Besides, the bellows in vacuum
interrupter are avoided to be broken down due to contacts over
bounding and also the mechanical lifetime of operating mecha-
nism is ensured.

Special design of repair without many tools


 During the design for VN2 circuit-breaker, the installation and
repair must be taken into account. So for the disassembly of
parts or accessories, users need no special tools and the re- Damper with Perfect Performance
pair becomes more convenient. Besides, all of the secondary
controlling components are in front of the operating mechanism,
which also make maintenance and repair convenient.

Modularized operating mechanism


 Modularized operating mechanism is another feature of VN2. It
can be divided into closing module, opening module, main-axis
module and secondary wiring module, which make the mecha-
nism have characteristic of standard manufacture method, short
producing period, convenient maintenance and rapid replacing.
These modules are standard and applicable to all VN2 so the
Closing Module Opening Module
costs of facilities management and maintenance are reduced.

Self- lubricative bearing without oil


 Self-lubricative bearing without oil used for VN2 circuit-breaker
is very applicable to over-load and low-speed conditions and
avoids the lost-lubricative phenomena due to oil-lubricative
bearing out of work for a long time. The free-maintenance can
be realized accordingly.

Self- lubricative Bearing without Oil


Conductors with silvered surface
 All the conductors of VN2 circuit-breaker are disposed by sil-
vered process so that it do not only reduce the contacting re-
sistance but also improve the electricity-conducting capacity
of conductors. Thanks to the reduced resistance the heat from
circuit-breaker running can be decreased and the breakers life-
time is also lengthened.

Unique embedded poles


 Through advanced APG process the vacuum interrupter with
small volume and low resistance and the main electrical circuit
are cast in an insulating cylinder by epoxy resin. This structure
makes the primary electrical circuit be isolated with the exter-
nal environment. Comparing with assembled poles, the
accessories, conductor joints and fasteners of embedded poles
are reduced mostly. All of that do not only make the assembly
simple, avoid the fasteners loose due to vibration during trans-
portation and improve the products reliability, but also prevent
the external surface of vacuum interrupter from external me-
chanical impact and environment such as dusts, humidity,
corrosive or animals. Thanks to the epoxy resin, the poles cen-
ter distance is reduced and accordingly the overall dimension Embedded Pole
of equipped switchgear is reduced.

ity and rapid insulated recovering. So the vacuum interrupter Bellow
has long lifetime. Besides, thanks to the one-off sealing and Oriented sleeve

exhausting process, the vacuum interrupter has advanced elec-


tric capability and mechanical capability. At the same time its
vacuum degree and other technical parameters all precede
national and international standards.
