    40. RAPIER OverheadRange

    41. Rapier Overhead Range Rapier GX - based on SF6 technology • GX-M (manual, hook-stick operation) • GX-RC (local/ remote control via Gemini-RTU) • GX-S or Sectionaliser (under development)

    42. Rapier GX Load Break Switch - Features • Ratings up to 38kV • SF6 gas utilised as both arc quenching and insulating medium • Equipped with 3 current transformers and 6 VCT’s in the bushings • Stainless Steel enclosure sealed for life • Motor actuator for DA • Overpressure membrane for internal arc protection

    43. Rapier GX Load Break Switch - Features (contd) • Options available include: - Low gas pressure lockout device - Gas pressure switch - 3 additional CT’s for SEF - Manual locking device - Built-in VT for control cabinet supply • GX LBS integrated with Gemini-RTU controller (described later)

    44. Rapier GX Load Break Switch- Benefits • Field proven LBS performance • Low capital and lifetime costs • Virtually maintenance free • Designed for maximum operator safety • Capable of live line installation • Integrated solution for distribution automation

    45. Rapier Overhead Range Rapier RX - based on air break technology • RX-M (manual down pole or hook-stick operation) • RX-RC (local/ remote control via Gemini-RTU) • RX-FS or Fuse Switch

    46. Problems Associated withOlder Air Break Designs • Mechanisms would seize up over time due to stiff bearings and corroded main contacts • Load Break Heads seized up due to complex design • Braided flexes and joints suffered corrosion • Significant maintenance over the switches’ lifecycle

    47. New Features in RX Design • Low friction, corrosion resistant bearing leading to low maintenance and improved reliability • Laminated flexes with no corrosive effects. (Tested for 2,000 operations before single lamination broke) • New simpler design of Arc Chute device for rapid arc extinction when load breaking • New tungsten tipped contacts so that Fault Make Heads can be fitted as an option • All key components now stainless steel for corrosion resistance
