LF circuit breakers
The advantages of proven technology
With over 37 years’ industrial experience in
SF6 techniques and over 300,000 installed
devices throughout the world,
Schneider Electric is today one of the
foremost manufacturers of SF6 switchgear.
Schneider Electric has developed
a wide range of high performance and
reliable devices operating faultlessly
on all 5 continents.
Continuously increasing its performance,
the company maintains a very high level
of innovation in its offer.
Safety
The breaking medium is sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) used at low pressure.
The insulating enclosure containing the circuit breaker pole(s) is equipped with
a safety membrane.
In addition, the rated characteristics, breaking the rated current under the rated
voltage, are generally maintained at zero relative bars of SF6.
Reliability
The motor-charged spring stored energy operating mechanism is a key factor
of device reliability: Schneider Electric cumulates 37 years’ experience with this type
of mechanism, 300,000 of which are already in operation.
Schneider Electric’s mastery of design and the testing of sealed systems guarantees
sustained device performance for at least 30 years.
Increased endurance
61051N
The mechanical and electrical endurance of Schneider Electric SF6 breaking
devices are in conformity with the most demanding specifications recommended by
the IEC.
These devices therefore meet requirements for even the most exposed of networks.
Less maintenance
Throughout the device’s service life, which in normal operating conditions may be
at least 30 years, the only maintenance required is on the mechanical operating
mechanism, once every 10 years or every 10,000 operations.
Although no maintenance is performed on poles, a diagnosis is possible:
b contact wear can be checked by external pole measurement
b SF6 pressure can be continually monitored by a pressure switch.
Environmentally-friendly
Schneider Electric devices have been designed to ensure protection
of the environment:
b the materials used, both insulating and conductive, are identified and easy
to separate and recycle,
b the SF6 gas is under control from production through to the circuit breaker’s end
of life. In particular it can be recovered at the end of the circuit breaker’s life and
re-used after treatment in line with the new European directive,
b an end of life manual for the product details procedures for dismantling and
recycling components.
DE55746
DE55745
Quality Assurance
During production, each circuit breaker undergoes systematic routine tests
in order to check quality and conformity:
b pole sealing check
b checking the correct mechanical operation of the device,
plus its associated locking mechanisms
b checking simultaneous closing of contacts
b checking power frequency insulation level
b checking main circuit resistance
b checking auxiliary circuit insulation
b checking auxiliary circuit electrical resistance
b checking switching speeds
b checking the switching cycle
b measuring the switching times.
The results are recorded on the test certificate for each device
which is initialed by the quality control department.
Certification
The quality system for the design and production of LF range circuit breakers
is certified in conformity with ISO 9001: 2000 quality assurance standard requirements.
The environmental management system adopted by Schneider Electric production
sites for the production of LF range circuit breakers has been assessed and judged
to be in conformity with requirements in standard ISO 14001.

b the circuit breaker is closed
DE51243
b on opening of the main contacts (a) the current
is shunted into the breaking circuit (b)
DE51244
b on separation of the arcing contacts, an electrical arc
appears in the expansion volume (c). The arc rotates
under the effect of the magnetic field created by the coil
(d) through which flows the current to be broken:
the overpressure created by the temperature build-up
of the gas in the expansion volume (c ) causes a gaseous
flow blowing the arc inside the tubular arcing contact (e),
resulting in arc quenching when the current passes
through the zero point
DE51245
LF circuit breakers use the SF6 gas self expansion technique.
This technique is the result of many years’ experience in SF6 technology and major
research work.
It combines the effect of thermal expansion with a rotating arc to create arc blowing
and quenching conditions.
The result is reduced control energy requirements and arcing contact erosion;
this increases mechanical and electrical endurance.
The operating sequence of a self-expansion breaking chamber, whose moving part
is driven by the mechanical operating mechanism, is as follows:
b the circuit breaker is open.

Description of the device
PE40611
The LF circuit breaker comprises a basic fixed version:
b 3 poles integrated in a “sealed pressure system” type insulating enclosure.
The sealed assembly is filled with SF6 gas at low relative pressure
(0.15 Mpa/1.5 bars) and equipped with a pressure switch
b an RI stored energy electrical operating mechanism.
This gives the device an opening and closing speed that is independent
of the operator, for both electrical and manual orders. It enables reclosing cycles
to be carried out
b a front panel housing the manual operating mechanism and status indicators
b upstream and downstream terminals for the power circuit connection
b a terminal block for connection of external auxiliary circuits.
Each device can also be fitted with the following options:
b a supporting frame equipped with rollers and ground fixing brackets for fixed
installation
b circuit breaker locking in the open position by a keylock installed on the front plate
of the operating mechanism
b a 42-pin Harting type LV connector.

LF1 - LF2 - LF3 circuit breakers
Applications
LF circuit breakers are three-pole indoor MV circuit breakers.
They are mainly used for operation and protection of public, industrial and tertiary
distribution networks from 7.2 to 17.5 kV.
Through their anti-seismic qualification, they are particularly well suited to nuclear
or thermal power production installations and applications in heavy industries
such as the petrochemical industry.
Through their compact dimensions and harmonized range, LF circuit breakers
are positioned very favorably on the retrofit market.
With self expansion, the breaking technique used in these circuit breakers,
all current types, capacitive and inductive, can be made or broken without
generating overvoltage which could damage your installation.
The LF circuit breaker is therefore ideally suited to operating capacitor banks.

Specific applications
Protection of generators and power station auxiliaries
All circuit breakers in the LF range break short circuit currents with an asymmetry
of at least 30%.
In cases where the network constant X/R is greater than 45 ms, the asymmetry
to be broken is higher; this is often the case of circuit breakers protecting nuclear
or thermal power station auxiliaries or circuit breakers that are close to generator sets
or large transformers.

of capacitor banks; they are classed C2 according to standard IEC 62271-100.
Tests carried out according to the standard for breaking at 400 A with making
and breaking cycles in case of a capacitor bank with a making current of 20 kA.

Function
Remote control enables the remote opening and closing of the circuit breaker.
Composition
The remote control mechanism comprises:
b an electrical motor with gearing
b a shunt closing release (YF) combined with an anti-pumping device
b an operation counter.
Electrical motor with gearing (M)
The electrical motor arms and re-arms the stored energy unit as soon as the circuit
breaker is closed. This allows the instant closing of the device after opening.
The arming lever is only used as a back-up operating mechanism in the case of any
auxiliary power supply.
The M3 contact indicates the end of arming operations.

The number of contacts available depends on the options chosen on the operating
mechanism.
In the basic configuration, the circuit breaker’s operating mechanism comprises
a total of:
b 5 normally closed contacts (NC)
b 5 normally open contacts (NO)
b 1 changeover contact (CHG).

the number of contacts used given in the table above.
E.g.: a circuit breaker equipped with a remote control and a shunt trip unit has
the following available contacts:
5 NC + 4 NO + 1 CHG.
With a undervoltage release instead of the shunt trip, this circuit breaker would have
the following available contacts:
5 NC + 5 NO + 1 CHG.

Description of the device
LF withdrawable circuit breaker and cassette
The basic withdrawable version of the LF circuit breaker comprises:
b the circuit breaker unit with its operating mechanism:
v 3 poles integrated in a “sealed pressure system” type insulating enclosure.
The sealed assembly is filled with SF6 gas at low relative pressure
(0.15 Mpa/1.5 bars) and equipped with a pressure switch
v an RI stored energy electrical operating mechanism.
This gives the device an opening and closing speed that is independent
of the operator, for both electrical and manual orders. It enables reclosing cycles
to be carried out
v a front panel housing the manual operating mechanism and status indicators.
b the components enabling it to be withdrawable:
v the circuit breaker is equipped with racking arms and contact fingers and mounted
on a racking in/out drive device with a threaded shaft activated by a handle,
including all of the safety interlock systems.
v a Harting type male LV connector allows connection of the external auxiliary circuits.
Each device can optionally be fitted with:
b locking of the circuit breaker in the following positions:
v open, by a key lock installed on the control panel
v racked out, by a key lock installed on the drive device.
b the basic MC cassette, comprising:
v a metal structure and two guide rails
v fixed connection fingers insulated by bushings
v metal shutters to insulate from the HV part
v safety interlocking systems
v a female Harting type LV connector.
b MC cassette options:
v circuit breaker racked-in or out position indicator contacts
v a circuit breaker operating mechanism spring discharge system
v a circuit breaker racked-in blocking mechanism
v an extraction tool
v an equipped door
v a foolproof device for the circuit breaker rating
v an earthing switch operating mechanism (see chapter 5 in catalogue
“MV switchboards components” ref. AMTED305019EN).
Applications
LF circuit breakers are three-pole indoor MV circuit breakers.
They are mainly used for operation and protection of public, industrial and tertiary
distribution networks from 7.2 to 17.5 kV.
Through their anti-seismic qualification, they are particularly well suited to nuclear
or thermal power production installations and applications in heavy industries
such as the petrochemical industry.
Through their compact dimensions and harmonized range, LF circuit breakers
are positioned very favorably on the retrofit market.
With self expansion, the breaking technique used in these circuit breakers,
all current types, capacitive and inductive, can be made or broken without
generating overvoltage which could damage your installation.
The LF circuit breaker is therefore ideally suited to operating capacitor banks.

Specific applications
Protection of generators and power station auxiliaries
All circuit breakers in the LF range break short circuit currents with an asymmetry
of at least 30%.
In cases where the network constant X/R is greater than 45 ms, the asymmetry
to be broken is higher; this is often the case of circuit breakers protecting nuclear
or thermal power station auxiliaries or circuit breakers that are close to generator sets
or large transformers.

Fixed connection fingers insulated by bushings
The three ends of the circuit breaker, fitted with racking clusters, provide the contact
with these three fingers.
Metal shutters to insulate from the MV part
Three shutters mounted on the structure stop access to the racking fingers when the
circuit breaker is extracted (protection index: IP2X).
Safety interlocking systems
When carrying out maintenance operations, it is possible to:
b padlock the shutters in the closed position
b unlock the access mechanism to the fixed contacts.
Anti-drop function
This function ensures operator safety during circuit breaker extraction.
Compulsory MC cassette accessories
DE52505
Extraction tool
DE52503
Indication contacts
Female Harting low voltage connector
A connector with a cable can either be delivered with the circuit breaker,
with the circuit breaker plus the cassette, or separately.
Panel with circuit breaker operation pictograms
A self-adhesive panel shows racking-in and out operations for the circuit breaker.
This is systematically delivered when the circuit breaker is ordered either
with the cassette or as a separate order.
Racking handle
The handle is used for circuit breaker racking-in/out operations and for earthing
switch opening and closing operations.
Extraction tool
b A standard tool allows the breaking device to be extracted from each cassette
version, whatever the installation height, up to 800 mm from the ground.
b A simplified extraction tool can be manufactured locally according to the

Remote control
Function
In its basic version, the circuit breaker comprises a remote control mechanism
for remote circuit breaker opening and closing.
Composition
The remote control mechanism comprises:
b an electrical motor with gearing
b a shunt closing release (YF) combined with an anti-pumping device
b an operation counter.
Electrical motor with gearing (M)
The electrical motor carries out the automatic rearming of the stored energy unit as
soon as the circuit breaker is closed. This allows the instant reclosing of the device
after opening. The arming lever is only used as a backup operating mechanism
in the case of the absence of the auxiliary power supply.
The M3 contact indicates the end of arming operations.

RI stored energy operating mechanism
Wiring diagram
PE40614
Operation of the RI stored energy operating mechanism
This mechanism guarantees the device an opening and closing speed unaffected
by the operator, for both electric and manual orders.
It carries out the O and CO cycles and is automatically recharged
by a gear motor after closing. It consists of:
b the stored energy operating mechanism which stores in springs the energy
required to open and close the device
b a gear motor electrical charging device with manual charging by lever
(useful on loss of auxiliary supply)
b manual order devices by push buttons on the front panel of the device
(red and black)
b an electrical remote closing device containing a release with an antipumping relay
b an electrical opening device containing one or more releases, for example:
v shunt trip devices
v Mitop, a low consumption release, used only with the Sepam 100 LA
protection relay.
b an operation counter
b a position indication device by mechanical indicator (black and white)
and a module of 14 auxiliary contacts whose availability varies according
to the diagram used
b a device for indicating “charged” operating mechanism status by mechanical
indicator and electrical contact
b a double contact pressure switch is activated when the gas pressure reduces below:
v 1st stage: 0.18 MPa (relative pressure: 1.8 bar)
v 2nd stage: 0.1 MPa (relative pressure: 1 bar)
b a single contact pressure switch is activated when the gas pressure exceeds
0.4 MPa (relative pressure: 4 bar).

Operating mechanism
Undervoltage release (YM)
This release unit causes the systematic opening of the circuit breaker when its
supply voltage drops below a value less than 35% of the rated voltage, even if this
drop is slow and gradual. It can open the circuit breaker between 35% and 70% of
its rated voltage. If the release unit is not supplied power, manual or electrical closing
of the circuit breaker is impossible. Closing of the circuit breaker is compulsory when
the supply voltage of the release unit reaches 85% of its rated voltage.

Function
Remote control enables the remote opening and closing of the circuit breaker.
Composition
The remote control mechanism comprises:
b an electrical motor with gearing
b a shunt closing release (YF) combined with an anti-pumping device
b an operation counter.
Electrical motor with gearing (M)
The electrical motor arms and re-arms the stored energy unit as soon as the circuit
breaker is closed. This allows the instant closing of the device after opening.
The arming lever is only used as a back-up operating mechanism in the case of any
auxiliary power supply.
The M3 contact indicates the end of arming operations.

The anti-pumping relay enables the guaranteeing of opening priority in the case
of a permanent closing order. This therefore avoids the device being caught
in a uncontrolled opening-closing loop.

“Open/closed” auxiliary contacts
(7)
The number of contacts available depends on the options chosen on the operating
mechanism.
In the basic configuration, the circuit breaker’s operating mechanism comprises
a total of:
b 5 normally closed contacts (NC)
b 5 normally open contacts (NO)
b 1 changeover contact (CHG).
The usage procedure for auxiliary contacts is given in the following table:

In order to know the final number of available contacts, you must deduct the total
number of contacts included in the circuit breaker (5 NC + 5 NO + 1 CHG),
the number of contacts used given in the table above.
E.g.: a circuit breaker equipped with a remote control and a shunt trip unit has
the following available contacts:
5 NC + 4 NO + 1 CHG.
With a undervoltage release instead of the shunt trip, this circuit breaker would have
the following available contacts:
5 NC + 5 NO + 1 CHG.
