closed separation separation open

1 Main contact separation


No electric arc strikes as the current flows through the arcing contacts.
During its run downwards, the moving part compresses the gas contained in the lower chamber.
The compressed gas flows out of the lower chamber into the upper chamber, taking them both to
the same pressure.

Arcing contact separation


The current flows thanks to the electric arc which has struck between the arcing contacts.
The gas cannot get out through the nozzle because the hole is still closed by the fixed arcing con-
tact and cannot get out through the inside of the moving arcing contact either because the electric
arc closes this (clogging effect).
• with low currents, when the current passes through natural zero and the arc is quenched,
the gas flows through the contacts. The low pressure reached cannot chop the current and the
modest amount of compressed gas is sufficient to restore dielectric resistance between the two
contacts, preventing restriking on the rising front of the return voltage.
• with high short-circuit currents, the pressure wave generated by the electric arc closes the
2 valve between the two chambers so that the circuit-breaker starts to operate as a “pure self-
blast”. The pressure increases in the upper volume thanks to heating of the gas and molecular
disassociation due to the high temperature. The increase in pressure generated is proportional
9 to the arc current and ensures quenching on first passage through current zero.

1 DESCRIPTION

Standards and approvals


HD4 circuit-breakers comply with IEC 62271-100, CEI 17-1 file
1375 Standards and with those of major industrialised coun-
tries.
They have undergone the following tests and guarantee safety
and reliability of the apparatus in service in all installations.
• Type tests: heating, withstand insulation at industrial and
impulse frequency, short-time and peak withstand current,
mechanical duration, making and breaking of short-circuit
currents;
• Individual tests: insulation with voltage at industrial fre-
quency in the main circuits and insulation of the auxiliary and
control circuits, measurement of the main circuit resistance,
mechanical and electrical operation.
The HD4 circuit-breakers are tested according to the require-
ments of the IEC 62271-100 Standard (class E2 - table 21) and
guarantee suitability for use in overhead lines, with rapid
reclosing cycle. Versions approved according to the GOST
Standard are also available (please contact us).

Service safety
Thanks to the availability of a complete range of mechanical
and electrical locks (on request), safe distribution switchgear
can be constructed using HD4 circuit-breakers. The locking
devices have been designed to prevent incorrect operations
and to carry out inspection of the installation, ensuring maxi-
mum operator safety.

The terminals and isolating contacts are The withdrawable circuit-breakers feature The nameplate, located on the front
