The bus bars should be adjusted to ensure that the mounting holes (A, see
Figure 21, page 15) are aligned with the terminal pads before the bolts are
inserted. The bus bar is held by support (B) which is attached to the
framework of the switchboard, so that the terminal pads do not have to
support the weight of the bus bar. Dimension (C) must be maintained
(Table 7, next page) to withstand the electrodynamic stresses between

DISCONNECTING AND
CONNECTING INSTRUCTIONS
. The circuit breaker has four drawout positions and can be operated in all four
CONNECTED position
positions. The circuit breaker is captive in all positions except WITHDRAWN.
06313266

A closed circuit breaker is automatically opened prior to being


connected or disconnected during a racking in or racking out
operation.

Connection or disconnection of the circuit breaker requires insertion of the


racking crank. Insertion of the racking crank can be prevented by the
following stationary assembly accessories:
• Padlock
TEST position
• Key lock
• Racking interlock

Disconnecting and connecting instructions are summarized on


the label provided with the installation instructions. The label must
be affixed to the door of the switchboard.

• In the CONNECTED position, the primary and secondary disconnecting


terminals are engaged, and the circuit breaker is ready for service.
• In the TEST position, the primary terminals are disengaged, however,
control contacts are connected to permit operation of the circuit breaker.
DISCONNECTED position
The TEST position is used for testing circuit breaker operation and
control system functions. In this position, the circuit breaker is not
suitable for internal inspection or any maintenance function.
• In the DISCONNECTED position, the primary and secondary disconnect
terminals are disengaged and separated by a safe distance from the
corresponding stationary terminals.
• In the WITHDRAWN position, both primary and secondary contacts are
disconnected. The circuit breaker may be removed for complete
accessibility.

When a racking crank remains inserted or a circuit breaker is not


WITHDRAWN position completely disconnected, the extraction of the right rail is
prevented.

01/2002 Section 2—Operation

OPERATING
Charging Instructions All basic circuit breaker and drawout operations can be performed from the
front of the circuit breaker. Suitable electrical and mechanical interlocks are
provided to prevent incorrect operation of the circuit breaker. To manually
charge an electrically- or manually-operated circuit breaker, push or pull
down on the charging handle, six full strokes should be used. When the
spring is fully charged, the yellow “charged” indicator will appear in the
stored-energy window on the circuit breaker front cover, the handle stops,
and it will return to normal position when released.

06313270

Manual Charging Electrical Charging

Closing Instructions All that is required to close the circuit breaker locally is to push the
mechanical push ON button. Pre-charged circuit breakers may be closed
remotely via a spring-released solenoid which is standard for electrically
operated circuit breakers and optional for manually-operated circuit
breakers. Before attempting to close the circuit breaker locally, the stored-
energy indicator window must show a yellow “charged.''
06313271

ON

Circuit breaker can be closed only if:


• It is opened
• It is charged
• Pop-out type fault indicator is correctly reset
• No remote opening order is intended.

The closing coil (XF) withstands a continuous voltage, providing


anti-pumping function. If the circuit breaker is not ready to close
when the closing order is intended, inhibit it and try again as soon
as the circuit breaker is ready to close. To inhibit the anti-pumping
function, wire in series the ready-to-close switch (terminals
251-252) with the closing coil.

Section 3—Control Unit Types 01/2002

CONTROL UNIT OPTIONS


Pre-trip and Overload Indication Option
The pre-trip and overload indication is standard with all control units except
STR 18 M. The overload indicator is a light-emitting diode (LED) which is:
ALR
• On when the current exceeds 90% of the current setting.
• Flashing on overload when current exceeds 105–120% of current
setting.

The pre-trip alarm switch is a contact (LR1–LR2) which closes when the
circuit breaker is in the overload zone. It opens if the load decreases below
the overload zone or if the circuit breaker trips.
For wiring diagram, see page 46.

48049-071-03 MASTERPACT® MP, MF and MC Circuit Breakers
01/2002 Section 3—Control Unit Types

Thermal Memory Limitation Thermal memory is standard on the STR 38 S and STR 58 U trip units. The
thermal memory function remembers the thermal heating from each time the
pickup setting is exceeded.
It operates:
• Before tripping on long-time and ground-fault protection (if provided).
• After tripping on long-time protection only; the time-constant depends on
the internal temperature of the circuit breaker.

Any temporary overload generates an overheating value, which is stored. A


series of temporary overloads will be integrated into this overheating value.
Storing of this value results in reduced tripping time so the reaction of the trip
unit will be closer to the real heating seen by the system. The internal
temperature rise of the circuit breaker is measured by thermal resistors. The
cooling time constant of the memory depends on the over-temperature
condition. The standard version of the control unit STR 58 is fitted with a
min/max position switch.
The min position cancels the thermal memory and must only be used in
emergencies where reclosing on a fault is essential.
WARNING
HAZARD OF PERSONAL INJURY OR
EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.
Use “min” position only for emergency, when
reclosing on fault is absolutely necessary.
Failure to follow this instruction can result in
serious personal injury or equipment
damage.

Fault Indication Option


Three light-emitting diodes (LEDs) indicate separately long-time, short-
time/instantaneous and ground-fault trip. A flat push button allows resetting
F of the indicator after tripping.
A separate power supply is required to maintain the fault indication after the
circuit breaker trips. Two options are offered:
• Connecting a reliable 24 Vdc control voltage on F1-F2. Auxiliary power
module is used for other voltages. When the control source is unreliable,
a bettery pack (BAT) is added to power module.
• From a built-in battery module. When no external control source is
available, a built-in battery module may be ordered (option PIL). This
module integrates battery testing and indicator resetting buttons.

The option R provides two independant static contacts which operate when
the current exceeds adjustable pickup limits.
R
• When the current exceeds the limit Ic1 (or Ic2) the contact C-R1
(or C-R2) closes, following an inverse time characteristic a.
• When the current drops below the limit Ic1 (or Ic2) the contact C-R1
(or C-R2) opens with constant time delay (10 seconds) b.

Zone-selective Interlocking Option


Option Z on the STR 58 U trip unit provides selective interlocking of
short-time or ground-fault tripping.
Z A control wire links several trip units in the distribution network, as shown in
the figure below.
In the event of a fault, the trip unit will obey the pre-set delay only if receiving
a signal from the downstream unit. If not receiving a signal, tripping will be
instantaneous (time delay corresponding to 0.1 setting of short-time
protection).
• The fault is cleared instantaneously by the nearest circuit breaker.
Table 9: Control Cable
• Thermal stresses (I²t) in the network are minimized, without any affect on
Cable size #18–#14 AWG (1.5 mm2) the correct time delay coordination in the installation.
Max. length 60 ft. (20m) NOTE: On drawout circuit breakers, terminals are delivered with “in”
Wiring
