Distribution faults damage your equipment, reliability, and bottom line. Managing these faults with conventional reclosers may cause more damage than you realize by multiplying the force on your system when testing the line for faults. Not only does this risk the long-term health of your system, but conventional reclosers have limitations that restrict reliability improvements—from basic upgrades, such as increasing segmentation, to the complexity of integrating DERs.

S&C’s IntelliRupter PulseCloser Fault Interrupters use PulseClosing® Technology to dramatically reduce the amount of force used during fault testing and enable multiple applications to improve reliability. With this breakthrough technology, coupled with incredibly accurate sensors and bi-directional protection, IntelliRupter fault interrupters provide the versatility to meet you where you are in your grid-modernization journey. You can see immediate reliability benefits today and build on the IntelliRupter fault interrupters’ capabilities to address the needs of the future grid.
