IntellirupterPulseCloser Offers High-Accuracy Voltage and Current Sensors

S&C Electric Company has now enhanced the Intellirupter PulseCloser with sensors for measuring voltage and current with high accuracy. With these sensors the Intellirupter performs better than any other device for self healing and protection applications in the smart grid.

Voltage and current measurements with more accuracy at a low cost is now possible with Intellirupter’s sensors, these measurements are important in volt/var control and circuit optimization of smart-grid applications.

Michael Edmonds, the Director of S&C Global Smart Grid Strategies explained how the built in sensors eliminate the need for separate sensing devices in smart grid applications. He said that the Intellirupter’s sensors capture important operational data so there is no need for external utilities, as a result installation and maintenance costs are reduced.

The steady-state system sensing accuracy that the in-built sensors maintain is 0.5% for both voltage and current operating ranges. By virtue of the high accuracy provided by the Intellirupter, it is most suited for applications like advanced over current protection and in utility distribution systems.

The 15-kV Intellirupters now come with a standard 16-kA interrupting rating feature, which widens the application range of Intellirupter’s Pulseclosing technology. Through usage of this technology businesses are greatly benefited and the damage to utility distribution system assets is reduced considerably.

S&C Electric Company ranks among the top leaders in the Smart Grid industry, having over 100 years of experience. S&C works relentlessly with the aim of providing innovative solutions for electricity delivery, with improved efficiency and reliability each time.
