*The VI in 10-VPR-32D (1,250A).

Exposure

of live parts in the main circuit has been minimized even in VCBs with a 3,150A rating. This
enhances safety through prevention of potential hazards such as short circuits caused by intrusion of
small animals.

Earthing switch

The

mechanical parts are coated with a long-life grease that contributes to the prevention of oxidation
degradation and oilless bearings has been adopted for the bearing section of latch, thus extending the
lubrication cycle to mechanical parts from three to six years and reducing the time required for maintenance.
Includes a new withdrawable with door closed* (in addition to the conventional lever-based insert/draw-out
mechanism) with cam-slide mechanism that reduces operating effort, saves time and enhances VCB safety.
*Mechanism used to insert/draw-out the circuit breaker from the external panel based on IEC 62271-200 switchgear standards.

Enhanced options including additional auxiliary switch and earthing switch.


VCB with the rated normal current up to 3,150A is transported together with a panel by shipping clamps.
Compatibility with mounting frame of previous 10-VPR-C Series (positions of mounting holes, terminals and
partitions are the same).

Minimizing exposure to the


live part of a main circuit

Withdrawable with door closed (Type-M)

No

use of the six hazardous substances (mercury, cadmium, lead, hexavalent chromium, PBB and PBDE), a
measure that exceeds the requirements of RoHS standards. One example is use of a rust-proofing treatment
for small parts such as pins and screws that is free of hexavalent chromium, a substance known to
contaminate soil.

Cutting-edge Technologies Using 3D CAD and CAE


VCB Structure

to Ensure the Utmost Levels of Reliability and Safety


Operating Mechanism

Through

use of thermal fluid analysis, we have realized efficient


of heat to the cylinder-shaped insulation frame covering
the VCB main circuit part, enabling a self-cooling mechanism up
to a rated current of 3,150A.

Greater

performance reliability and extension of the lubrication cycle from three to six years through measures for the
mechanism such as minimizing the number of parts, reducing the number of moving parts, adopting oilless
bearings and use of a long-life grease.

Heat flow

operating

More

reliable distribution of operating friction (which, due to the addition of a spring load, is difficult to verify/evaluate)
has been achieved thanks to utilization of a three-dimensional mechanical simulation used to switch operation from the
operating mechanism to a VI contact.

Compound

insulation of insulated parts and air has been optimized


through analysis and testing, resulting in a basic impulse level (BIL)
up to 95kV, yet at a size equivalent to the previous 10-VPR-C
Series.
Materials

with superior tracking resistance have been adopted


a cylindrical shape realized through stress analysis of the
insulation frame and cutting-edge molding technology.

with even higher reliability through utilization of computer-aided


(CAE) technology and backed by record of
manufacturing 3.5 million* 1 VIs in over 40 years of manufacturing
experience that has seen us capture the top share of the market
in Japan.
addition to adopting spiral contacts, improvements in contact
materials, and tests utilizing electromagnetic analysis and arc
behavior observations have realized a 16% size reduction
compared to the VI in the previous 10-VPR-32D type.

M2, E2, and C2 Classes Described in the Specifications (IEC62271-100)


Classification as for Mechanical Endurance ( M1 and M2 )

3 / 6 / 10 / 15-VPR-25D / 32D / 40D Series*3

The IEC standards broadly divide the mechanical operating test into classes M1 and M2. At the control voltages shown in
Table 1, class M1 requires the rated operation sequence to be performed 2,000 times in total while class M2 requires the
rated operation sequence to be performed 10,000 times in total. At five times the actuating cycle of class M1, class M2
represents a highly reliable operation class.

Probability of Restrike during Capacitive Current Switching (C1 and C2)


Performance in capacitive current swiching test is broadly divided into classes C1 and C2; class C2 is highly reliable.
Class C1: Low probability of arc restrike at the time of capacitive current switching test (2 restrikes are allowed during
O 24 operations and CO 24 operations).
Class C2: Very low probability of arc restrike at the time of capacitive current switching test (Restrikes is not allowed
during O 24 operations and CO 24 operations).

*1 Rated short-circuit breaking current of 40kA with E2 class cannot be manufactured. And basic impulse level (BIL) with rated voltage 12kV
has BIL75kV and BIL95kV.
*2 Fixed (type-L) with rated current of 2,500A or 3,000/3,500A cannot be manufactured.
*3 Please refer to the JNEC-SI-0150 catalog for 3/6-VPR-25D type with a rating of 1,250A or lower for information regarding class E1,
withdrawable (types C,D and G) and fixed type-L.

LSC1 : No partition
LSC2A-PI : No partition in the cable room
LSC2A-PM : No partition in the cable room
LSC2B-PI : Partitions in all compartments
LSC2B-PM : Partitions in all compartments

*Arc restrike is the phenomenon that occurs when current flows later than a 1/4 of a cycle after zero when there are insufficiencies in the VCB arc
extinction or in insulation stress between VCB poles for recovery voltage.

Mechanical Locking Device


Draw-out Mechanism Padlock Device

Key for interlocking

The interlock system is configured to lock the VCB in the off position. To
shut down the VCB either automatically or manually requires the VCB to
be locked using the key. The key can only be removed after the VCB has
been opened and locked. The VCB cannot be closed in this state.
Note that users are responsible for preparing the interlock key; a key will
not be supplied by the manufacturer. In addition, note that this feature
cannot be used together with the draw-out mechanism padlock device.

This padlock can be used to lock the VCB in the


connected position or test / disconnected position.
Note that users are responsible for preparing a
padlock; a padlock will not be supplied by the
manufacturer.

Precautions
Caution for circuits containing harmonics
As is the case with general high-pressure capacitors, please exercise caution when applying CR suppressors to circuits
with higher harmonic waves. Particular care is required regarding multiple-order harmonic waves which may have
flowed into circuits used for current control via the thyristor. When using a CR suppressor, set the effective value of
resultant current with harmonic waves to the values shown in the table below (values are 1.3 times the rated value).

Technical Information
Operation Mechanism and Operating Principles

Operation / Control Voltage (Current)


Table 17 Variation range of operation/control voltage.

Closing Operation
Fig. 53 shows the state where the circuit breaker is opened and the closing spring is discharged.

Standard

Electrical (Closing) Operation


When the power supply is connected, auxiliary relay 52Y is excited via limit switch LS2 and the contact of auxiliary relay 52Y
closes, which then activates the motor via LS2, and the contact of auxiliary relay 52Y starts to charge the closing spring.
When the closing spring is completely charged, limit switch LS2 opens, the motor then stops and limit switch LS1 closes (the
closed control circuit is formed).
By closing the closing command switch CS1 in this state, the closing coil CC is excited, the closing latch of the operating
mechanism is released and the circuit breaker closes as a result of the energy from the charged closed spring. Through
discharging the closed spring, LS2 is closed and LS1 is opened.
When limit switch LS2 closes, the motor activates and charges the closing spring to prepare for the next closing operation.
When the circuit breaker is closed, circuit breaker auxiliary contact 52b opens and shuts off excitation of closing coil CC. At
the same time auxiliary contact 52a closes and forms a trip circuit of the voltage trip coil STC and at the same time excites the
auxiliary relay (for anti-pumping prevention) 52X.

If consecutive closing commands are given to the closing operation switch CS1 while charging the closed spring (charge time
of motor: 6 seconds): limit switch LS1 closes, the closing coil CC is excited, and the circuit breaker closes after completing the
charging of the closing spring.

When the circuit breaker is opened (tripped), circuit breaker auxiliary contact 52a opens and shuts off excitation of STC to
prepare for the next closing operation.

Trip-free Operation
If the closing command and trip command are given simultaneously when the circuit breaker is in an opened state and the
closing spring is in a charged state (closing preparation):

When performing the closing operation, it is necessary to release the closing command by closing command switch CS1 and
then restore auxiliary relay 52X.

Impact on Load Device

Table 24 Normal service conditions.

10-VPR-D VCBs are designed and manufactured as an indoor unit and


comply with JEC-2300 (AC circuit breakers) and IEC 62271-100.
Accordingly, these VCBs require a normal service conditions specified
in Table 24. Furthermore, sufficient maintenance and inspections must
be performed in accordance with the VCB instruction manual. Please
consult the manufacturer regarding operation of VCBs under special
conditions.

Caution for Installation Site and Surrounding Environment


The VCB service conditions must comply with the specifications shown in
Table 24. Do not use the VCBs in environments that do not meet these
conditions. For use in outdoor panels and special environments where
there is excessive dust, corrosive gas, water/condensation or abnormal
vibration/shock, be sure to take appropriate countermeasures.
Non-adherence to these cautions may result in damage to the products
or degraded performance in areas such as switching, current carrying
capacity and insulation.

VCB load devices are generally considered to include


transformers, rotators and capacitors. When the surge
voltage is higher that the insulation level of a load device,
one of the surge protection devices shown in Table 25
must be applied.
The withstand voltage of transformers, rotators and
capacitors as listed in the IEC standards are shown in
Table 26. Please confirm the overvoltage tolerance of
each device with the relevant manufacturer.

Not required

*1: To directly switch the semiconductor rectifier unit (for example, a electric power thyristor rectifier unit) to the secondary side of a transformer, use
a transformer with a contact-protective plate. Use a general-purpose arrester on the primary side and the surge protective device (such as a filter
capacitor) on the secondary side.
*2: Avoid interrupting the no-load excitation inrush current of a molded transformer oil transformer. When such current must be interrupted, use a
general-purpose arrester. Before using any oil transformer or molded transformer made by other manufacturers, consult the manufacturer.
*3: For motors in applications where inching operation is frequently performed and inching is the predominant switching duty (cranes, conveyors,
etc.), use a CR suppressor.

Application to different-system circuits


Application to different-system circuits is possible. In this case, it is necessary to shorten the maintenance, inspection and cleaning
cycle because the voltage added between VCB poles will be higher than under normal conditions. A more frequent maintenance
and inspection cycle is especially important in environments where there is pollution or high humidity.

Caution for Korndorfer Start Circuit


For a korndorfer start, a neutral point release of the auto-transformer should be conducted after the start current is completely
diminished.
Alternatively, for an auto-transformer that is used as a starting compensator, please use a korndorfer system startup transformer
specified in "power transformer (JEC-2201)."

Application to Electric Furnace Circuit


High frequency switching of the circuit breaker for an electric furnace increases the possibility of generating a switching
surge, and when a filter capacitor is connected there is a risk of generating high overvoltage. In addition to adopting a surge
protection device, please use a circuit breaker with a high withholding voltage or select a circuit breaker with a rated voltage
in one of the top classes.

Surge Voltage for Breaking Current


Surge voltage at the time of interrupting current generally includes the current chopping surge when interrupting an inductive small
current. If small current is interrupted by a switch that is superior in arc extinction capacity like the vacuum circuit breaker, the arc
suddenly dissipates before forcing the current to zero and then interrupts current. This is called the current chopping phenomenon,
and a high surge voltage may be generated if the phenomenon occurs at the time of inductive small current breaking.
It is possible to calculate the current chopping surge voltage by the following general equations.

Service Life and Applications


Vacuum Service Life of VI
The high vacuum of the VI in the VCB ensures interrupting and insulation characteristics. It is very important that this vacuum be
maintained.
Our VIs are manufactured on our advanced production line and provide safe, long term use guaranteed by our original method of service
life testing and control. Vacuums can be inspected simply as part of regular inspections via the withstand voltage method or through use
of portable vacuum checkers.

Electrical Service Life of VI (see Table 27)


The electrical service life of a VI is determined by the electrode consumption and the number of switchings. For VPR-D, the service life
can be determined by the number of load switchings, because the electrode consumption is extremely small. Therefore, it is not required
to measure the electrode consumption (wipe) at the time of maintenance and inspection.

Polarity in Connecting to Main Circuit


It is unnecessary to classify the polarity in the power/load sides when connecting the main circuit of the VCB.
(Electrical or mechanical performance is not changed regardless of whether it is connected to the power side of load side.)

The contact resistance and calorific value of each rated current are shown. Use this as a reference when selecting models.
Table 30 Contact resistance and calorific value of each rated current.

Replace When Service Life Expires


The estimated service life is 20 years when used under normal environmental conditions. When the VCB reaches the end of its
mechanical service life or its specified operation count, it is necessary to replace the VCB.
