480V Metal-Enclosed Switchgear
Construction Details
General
The Siemens 480 volt switchgear assembly consists of one or more metalenclosed, vertical sections. Normally the
end sections are designed to allow for
installation of future sections.
Each vertical section consists of up to
four individually enclosed breaker or auxiliary compartments which are sized to
provide uniform height.
Included in each assembly are various
components such as circuit breakers,
instrumentation and control equipment,
transformers, relays, three-phase bus
work, and all internal wiring, connectors,
and other supporting equipment.
In accordance with ANSI C37.20.1, the
maximum temperature for parts that are
handled is 50°C. The main bus maximum
temperature rise is 65°C above 40°C
ambient. The temperature rise of the air
surrounding the cable connection points
is limited to 45°C above 40°C ambient.
General
Finish
During construction, the structural steel
parts, panels, and compartments are all
prepared for painting by a five-stage
wash system. Standard finish color is
light gray ANSI 61. If a different finish
color is required, it is applied over the
standard finish with conventional spray
equipment and is allowed to air cure. The
completed finish has a nominal 2 mils dry
film thickness.
Assembly Construction
Siemens metal-enclosed power
switchgear is constructed of preformed,
full-depth, 14-gauge steel sheets bolted
together and reinforced with cross-member braces to form a rigid, self-supporting
compact assembly. The top and rear
plates, and side sheets are all 14-gauge
steel. When two vertical sections are
mounted together, two sheets of 14gauge steel separate adjacent circuit
breaker compartments.
Bolted steel / glass polyester compartments housing each power circuit breaker are mounted in the vertical section to
form the switchgear assembly. This isolates the circuit breakers from the bus /
cable section and from adjacent circuit
breaker compartments.
The bus / cable section includes main
horizontal bus, riser bus, connections
from the main bus to each set of primary
disconnects, and load side copper runback bus.
Grounded metal barriers can be provided
to isolate the main bus from cable connections. Barriers are also available to
isolate the incoming line to the main circuit breakers from the main load bus of
the switchgear.

Construction Details
Main and Ground Bus
The standard main bus is silver-plated
copper. Welded aluminum is also available. Provisions for future extension of
aluminum main bus conductors include
tin plated joints with high tensile strength
steel hardware. Tin-plated copper bus is
optionally available.
The main three-phase horizontal bus is
arranged vertically one phase above the
other with edge-to-edge alignment to
provide high, short circuit strength.
Insulated main and vertical bus are
optional.
Main bus ratings available are 1600,
2000, 3200, 4000, or 5000 amperes continuous current. A neutral bus is furnished when specified, and can be rated
1600, 2000, 3200, 4000 or 5000 amperes
continuous current.
A standard copper ground bus extends
through all sections. A cable lug can be
mounted to the ground bus in each
section.
Minimum bus bracing is 65,000 amperes
RMS symmetrical. Higher symmetrical
bracings are available based on the lowest breaker short circuit rating in the
group.
Load side runbacks for feeder circuits are
one-piece copper construction, are insulated with sleeve tubing in the main bus
area, and are supported by high-strength,
glass polyester moldings.
General
Control Wiring
Standard secondary and control wiring is
#14 AWG extra-flexible, stranded copper
type SIS. Terminations are made with
compression-type, insulated terminals.
For devices not having screw-type terminals, tab-type disconnects are used.
Insulation
The insulation used is Pyro-Shield, a fiberglass-reinforced polyester material that
has high impact strength and low moisture absorption. Other features include
high flame retardance, high resistance to
chemical fumes, and long life at high
temperatures.
Circuit Breaker Compartments
Typical circuit breaker compartments
include primary disconnects, ground disconnect, drawout rails, and associated
interlocks, and secondary disconnects, if
appropriate. Telescoping drawout rails
allow the breaker to be withdrawn from
the compartment without additional
extensions or adapters. Compartments
for electrically-operated circuit breakers
include secondary disconnects and control circuit fuses. Up to three current
transformers for metering or relaying can
be mounted in each compartment.
Circuit breaker compartment front panels
can be used to hold a variety of auxiliary
devices such as breaker control switches, ammeters, and test blocks.

LV Power Circuit Breakers
General
The Siemens RL series circuit breakers
are designed for up to 600 volt service
with current carrying capacities of up to
5000 amperes and interrupting capacities
of up to 130,000 amperes unfused or
200,000 amperes fused.
These compact, fast operating circuit
breakers incorporate a stored energy
closing mechanism, either manually or
electrically charged, for fast, positive
closing.
A quick-make closing mechanism releases the stored energy for high speed closing of the primary contacts. This positive,
controlled closing prevents unnecessary
arcing between the movable and stationary breaker contacts and thus lengthens
contact and breaker life.
Manual tripping is performed with the
push lever on the front of the breaker. Up
to three padlocks can be used to lock the
breaker contacts in the open position.

Tables 4.16 and 4.17 show circuit breaker
operating and control data.
Circuit Breaker Racking
Racking is accomplished by turning a
racking screw on the front of the breaker
and may be done with the compartment
door open or closed. The racking screw
turns U-shaped brackets on each side of
the breaker which rack the breaker frame
in or out of the compartment.
As the racking screw is turned counterclockwise, the breaker frame moves out
of the compartment and disconnects the
primary contacts, followed by the secondary contacts. With only the secondary
contacts connected (test position), the
breaker may be closed and opened for
testing without energizing the load. An
indicator located on the front of the
breaker identifies the position of the
breaker in the compartment.
54
Type RL Circuit Breaker With Static Trip III Trip Unit And Optional Breaker Display Unit (BDU)
Primary Disconnects
Primary current is applied to the circuit
breaker through silver plated disconnects.
The stationary contacts are mounted
through solid Pyro-Shield insulation
sheets in the back of the compartments.
The movable contacts are mounted on
the back of the breaker. Stainless steel
springs provide pressure to the finger
contacts in the connected position. Low
contact resistance is maintained by these
self-aligning contacts. The primary contacts are positioned so that current can
flow only in the connected position. In
the test position the contacts are separated a safe distance.
Secondary Disconnects
Secondary circuits are connected to the
circuit breaker through silver-plated, slidetype contacts which are located below
the arc quenching area to avoid contamination from arc product gases. The position of these contacts is visible with the
panel door open. The stationary contacts
are silver-plated copper strips mounted
on a Pyro-Shield molded base. The contacts are recessed to guide the movable,
self-aligning contacts and to prevent accidental short circuiting. Secondary connections are made automatically in both the
connected and test positions.

LV Power Circuit Breakers
General
Ground Connection
A ground contact is located on the circuit
breaker to connect with the ground circuit. The breaker is grounded in both the
connected and test positions.
Drawout Interlocks
All circuit breakers have drawout interlocks to:
쐍 prevent racking a closed breaker
쐍 prevent closing breaker until racked to
connected or test position
쐍 prevent inserting or withdrawing
breaker from compartment while closing springs are charged
Arc Interruption
When a fault occurs, the main contacts
open first, transferring the fault current to
the arcing contacts. As the arcing contacts open, the thermal and electromagnetic characteristics force the arc into the
arc chute, where the metal plates lengthen, constrict, and cool the arc.
Current Limiting Fuses
The 800,1600 and 2000 ampere circuit
breakers are available with integrally
mounted current limiting fuses to
increase interrupting rating and / or to
limit short circuit (let-through) current.
The fuses are bolted in series with the
upper set of primary disconnects. The
breakers meet all required standards and
are UL Listed based on current limiting
fuses.
An open fuse tripping device is wired in
parallel with the main fuses to insure that
the circuit breaker opens if a main fuse
interrupts, thus preventing single phasing.
This device holds the circuit breaker tripfree until it is reset and also indicates
which main fuse has interrupted.

Integrally Fused RLF-800 Circuit Breaker
The higher raed circuit breakers, 3200,
4000 and 5000 ampere, are available
with current limiting fuses mounted on a
separate drawout carriage, which is key
interlocked with the circuit breaker. This
allows racking of the fuse carriage with
only the associated circuit breaker in the
CSI Section 16470
Current Sensors
The tripping system of the RL breaker is
self-powered from the current sensors
mounted on the primary contacts of the
breaker element (four-wire ground applications include a fourth sensor mounted in
the cable compartment). A signal from the
current sensors, proportional to primary
current, is applied to the trip device which
then operates the actuator to trip the
breaker based on a pre-set time delay
versus current magnitude relationship.

Static Trip® III Trip Unit
Static overcurrent tripping devices have
been standard on Siemens circuit breakers for over thirty years. The Static Trip Ill
trip unit features microprocessor-controlled tripping, while providing RMS
sensing for standard overcurrent protection, and optional metering and communications functions. Located in the lower
right side of the breaker, the trip unit is
readily accessible for simple reading and
adjustment of all settings and indicators.
Static Trip III trip units are interchangeable on all ratings of low voltage circuit
breakers.
The time / current characteristics of the
Static Trip III trip unit are shown on page
62.
All communicating Static
Trip III trip units include
a local communication
port that supports the
breaker-mounted display
unit or BDU. The BDU
features a high-visibility
alpha-numeric display. Real-time metered
values, min/max values, event log data
and setpoint data can be read on the
BDU in straightforward engineering units.

Tripping Actuator
The tripping actuator is a low energy,
flux-shifting device that allows fast action
tripping of the breaker.
Shunt Trip
The shunt trip is used to electrically trip
the circuit breaker from a remote device,
such as pushbutton, switch, or relay. The
shunt trip is standard on all electrically
operated breakers, optional on manually
operated breakers. The shunt trip coil is
designed for a momentary duty cycle.
Thus, an “a” type auxiliary contact switch
is used to interrupt the shunt trip circuit
immediately after the breaker is tripped.

When the coil is energized, the armature
picks up and rotates the trip latch, thereby tripping the breaker. A compression
spring returns the armature to the normal
position.

Table 4.8
Operation Counter
A mechanically-operated, 5-digit nonresetable counter can be mounted
beneath the breaker auxiliary switch.
The counter is incremented by the
action of the auxiliary switch operating
mechanism.
Undervoltage Trip Device
The undervoltage trip device protects
against a drop in normal bus voltage and
functions to directly trip the breaker.
Pickup occurs at 85 percent or less of
rated value and dropout between 30 and
60 percent of rated value. Pickup and
dropout are individually adjustable.
Instantaneous or time-delayed operation
can be provided. The static timing unit is
adjustable from 0.04 to 4 seconds for
time delay. This allows the system to
distinguish between undervoltage
conditions and momentary voltage dips.

Automatic Trip Alarm Contact (with or
without Lockout) (Bell Alarm)
The bell alarm contact is operated when
the trip actuator operates in response to
the Static Trip III trip unit. It indicates
when the circuit breaker has tripped as a
result of the static trip unit. The contact
can control a local or remote auxiliary
alarm for indication of an automatic trip
or, by wiring in series with a breaker closing coil, for interlocking to prevent circuit
breaker closure until the circuit is reset.
The contact must be reset manually or
electrically (optional). The manually reset
switch is available with a single-pole
double-throw contact, or two single-pole
single-throw contacts. The electrically
reset switch is available with a singlepole single-throw contact.
If desired, a mechanical lockout option
may be provided. This substitutes a
manual reset for the automatically reset
tripping actuator. In this case the breaker
is held trip free until the lockout is
manually reset.

Electrically Operated Interlock
This can be added to interlock two breakers, preventing both from being closed at
the same time. These electromechanical
devices add an additional solenoid that
must be energized before the breaker
can be closed. When the interlock is deenergized, the breaker is held trip-free
and cannot be closed electrically or
manually. The interlock has a mechanical
link that goes to the main shaft of the
breaker. The interlock is held in the
picked-up position when the breaker is
closed. Once closed the interlock can be
de-energized without tripping the breaker.
There are no adjustments for pickup or
dropout voltages. The interlocks are
continuously energized.

Weights and Dimensions
Siemens 480 volt switchgear can be
configured in many ways by combining
different section types. Up to five vertical
sections plus a transition section can be
shipped together as a unit. If all vertical
sections are not to be shipped as a unit,
specifications need to be provided that
describe the limiting factors (e.g., low
door or narrow hallway).
Normal indoor vertical sections are 101
in. (2565 mm) high and 60 in. (1524 mm)
deep. A top-mounted hoist, which is
shipped as an accessory in a separate
container, adds 2 in. (51 mm) for a total
installed height of 103 in. (2616 mm).
The outdoor switchgear assembly
contains the indoor assembly in an outdoor housing. The overall height is 113
in. (2870 mm) and the depth is 119.40 in.
(3033 mm).
Dimensions
The major assembly sections include:
쐍 Transition Sections — used as transition to liquid filled transformer or to
outdoor dry type transformers.
쐍 Auxiliary Sections — used as incoming bus duct or cable entrance when a
main breaker is not used.
쐍 Main Sections — used to contain
main breaker and may house metering
and feeder breakers.
쐍 Feeder Sections — used to contain
feeder breakers and other equipment
such as instrumentation.
쐍 Tie Sections — used to contain tie
breaker and other equipment such as
feeder breakers.
