Multiple variations of the Versa-Tech® recloser are available to fit any single-phase application on the system, outside substation or anywhere down the line. The same base design allows for easy adaptation for engineering and linemen.
In 2014, a new generation of the Versa-Tech® recloser was introduced. The Versa-Tech II recloser was built on its predecessor’s, the Versa-Tech I, foundation with a number of additional capabilities such as protection, monitoring, and logging features.
There are several types of automatic circuit recloser technologies for the electric utility industry. Each technology incorporates various feature classifications: number of phases, voltage class, medium for interruption, and control mechanism type. Both Oil Circuit Reclosers (OCR) and Electronic Reclosers have been in the industry for quite some time. Each of these recloser types provides a unique benefit to the power grid but also both present certain challenges.
