Datasheet

Introduction
In alternating current circuits, arc quenching is assisted by the fact that current passes through zero, and that the current can only continue to flow if the arc is re-stuck across the open contacts during the following half wave. Direct current does not provide such assistance. In this case, a high arc voltage must be developed in order to stop the flow of the DC current. Therefore, the DC switching capacity depends on the arc quenching method employed by the switching device, on the network voltage & on the inductive reactance of the circuit. In order to address DC network protection, Siemens offers 5SX5 / 5SJ5 series DC circuit breakers from 0.5A to 63A in Single pole & Double pole version. When using DC CBs in DC networks, care must be taken to ensure the contact polarity of the connections. In trains fed by a DC voltages (metros & railways) there is a wide range of L/R (Time Constants) values and over current levels. Consequently such special application requires fully enclosed operations. For such application 5SX5 / 5SJ5 is the right choice for load up to 63 Amps to ensure people safety Features Compact in size and hence reduction in panel size. Total recessed dial avoids accidental switching due to human negligence. Suitable for breaking capacity up to 10 kA Accessories like Aux block, fault signal contacts can be retro fitted at site. Finger touch proof (FTPT) ensures total safety for operator.

CBs for DC and AC/DC Applications


In DC networks up to 110 V , existing 5SX4 MCBs are suitable for single-pole and double-pole application. For higher voltages, the versions 5SX5/5SJ5 are required. Contrary to the other product range, the arcing chamber area of 5SX5 / 5SJ5 is equipped with an additional permanent magnet to support the positive quenching of the arc. For this reason, the polarity of the DC circuit breaker is clearly marked and must be observed when connecting the cables and conductors.
