A major plus point
Schneider Electric has integrated a functional organization into each of its units,
the main purpose of which is to check quality and ensure the adherence to standards.
This procedure is:
b the same throughout the different departments
b recognized by numerous approved customers and organizations.
Above all, it is our strict application of this functional organization that has enabled us
to obtain the recognition of an independent organization, the French Association for
Quality Assurance (Association Française pour l’Assurance Qualité, or (AFAQ).
PE58290
The RM6 design and production quality system has been certified as being
in conformity with the requirements of the ISO 9001: 2000 quality assurance
model.
Rigorous, systematic checks
During the manufacture of each RM6, it undergoes systematic routine tests,
the aim of which is to check quality and conformity:
b tightness check
b filling pressure check
b opening and closing speed measurement
b operating torque measurement
b partial discharge check
b dielectric check
b conformity with drawings and diagrams.
The quality control department records and signs the results obtained on the test
certificate for each device.
There is “zero” SF6 emission during the gas filling and tightness control process.

The RM6 range
RM6 switchgear description
PE56812
RM6 switchgear comprises 1 to 4 integrated, low dimension functional units.
This self-contained, totally insulated unit comprises:
b a stainless steel, gas-tight metal enclosure, sealed for life, which groups together
the live parts, switch-disconnector, earthing switch, fuse switch or the circuit breaker
b one to four cable compartments with interfaces for connection to the network
or to the transformer
b a low voltage cabinet
b an electrical operating mechanism cabinet
b a fuse chamber compartment for fused switch-disconnectors or fuse switches.
The performance characteristics obtained by the RM6 meet the definition
of a “sealed pressure system” laid down in the IEC recommendations.
The switch-disconnector and the earthing switch offer the operator all necessary
usage guarantees:
Tightness
The enclosure is filled with SF6 at a 0.2 bar gauge pressure. It is sealed for life after
filling. Its tightness, which is systematically checked at the factory, gives
the switchgear an expected lifetime of 30 years. No maintenance of live parts
is necessary with the RM6 breaking.
Switch-disconnector
Electrical arc extinction is obtained using the SF6 puffer technique.
PE56813
Circuit breaker
Electrical arc extinction is obtained using the rotating arc technique plus SF6
auto-expansion, allowing breaking of all currents up to the short-circuit current.
A range that is extensible on site
When harsh climatic conditions or environmental restrictions make it necessary
to use compact switchgear, but the foreseeable evolution of the power distribution
network makes it necessary to provide for future changes, RM6 offers a range
of extensible switchgear.
The addition of one or more functional units can be carried out by simply adding
modules that are connected to each other at busbar level by directed field bushings.
This very simple operation can be carried out on-site:
b without handling any gas
b without any special tooling
b without any particular preparation of the floor.
The only technical limitation to the evolution of an extensible RM6 switchboard
is therefore the rated current acceptable by the busbar: 630 A at 40°C.
055749
Insensitivity to the environment
Complete insulation
b A metal enclosure made of stainless steel, which is unpainted and gas-tight
(IP67), contains the live parts of the switchgear and the busbars.
b Three sealed fuse chambers, which are disconnectable and metallized
on the outside, insulate the fuses from dust, humidity...
b Metallization of the fuse chambers and directed field terminal connectors
confines the electrical field in the solid insulation.
Taken together, the above elements provide the RM6 with genuine total insulation
which makes the switchgear completely insensitive to environmental conditions,
dust, extreme humidity, temporary soaking.
(IP67: immersion for 30 minutes, as laid down in IEC standard 60529, § 14.2.7).

Switchgear
Switch-disconnectors and circuit breakers have similar architecture:
b a moving contact assembly with 3 stable positions (closed, open and earthed)
moves vertically (see sketch). Its design makes simultaneous closing of the switch
or circuit breaker and the earthing switch impossible.
b the earthing switch has a short-circuit making capacity, as required
by the standards.
b the RM6 combines both the isolating and interrupting function.
b the earth collector has the correct dimensions for the network.
b access to the cable compartment can be interlocked with the earthing switch and/
or the switch or circuit breaker.
3 stable position switch
Reliable operating mechanisms
055746
PE56416
The electrical and mechanical operating mechanisms are located behind a front
plate displaying the mimic diagram of the switchgear status (closed, open, earthed):
b closing: the moving contact assembly is manipulated by means of a fast-acting
operating mechanism. Outside these manipulations, no energy is stored.
For the circuit breaker and the fuse-switch combination, the opening mechanism
is charged in the same movement as the closing of the contacts.
b opening: opening of the switch is carried out using the same fast-acting
mechanism, manipulated in the opposite direction.
For the circuit breaker and fuse-switch combination, opening is actuated by:
v a pushbutton
v a fault.
b earthing: a specific operating shaft closes and opens the earthing contacts.
The hole providing access to the shaft is blocked by a cover which can be opened
if the switch or circuit breaker is open, and remains locked when it is closed.
b switchgear status indicators: are placed directly on the moving contact
assembly operating shafts. They give a definite indication of the position
of the switchgear (attachment A of IEC standard 62271-102).
b operating lever: this is designed with an anti-reflex device which prevents
any attempt to immediately reopen the switch-disconnector or the earthing switch
after closing.
b padlocking facilities: 1 to 3 padlocks can be used to prevent:
v access to the switch or circuit breaker operating shaft
v access to the earthing switch operating shaft
v operation of the opening pushbutton.
Earthing display
b Earthing switch closed position indicators: these are located on the upper part
of the RM6. They can be seen through the transparent earthing covers,
when the earthing switch is closed.
Internal arc withstand
055752
The robust, reliable and environmentally insensitive design of the RM6 makes it
highly improbable that a fault will appear inside the switchgear.
Nevertheless, in order to ensure maximum personal safety, the RM6 is designed to
withstand an internal arc supplied by a rated short-circuit current for 1 second,
without any danger to the operator.
Accidental overpressure due to an internal arc is limited by the opening
of the safety valve, at the bottom of the metal enclosure.
The internal arc withstand of the tank is of 20 kA 1 s.
With the option of the internal arc in cable compartment, the RM6 cubicle has an
internal arc withstand up to 20 kA 1 s, which meets all the criteria of IAC class A-FL
as defined by IEC 62271-200 standard, appendix A. The gas is released to the rear
or to the bottom of the RM6 without affecting conditions in the front. When the gas
is exhausted to the rear, the maximum internal arc withstand is of 16 kA 1 s. In case
the gas is exhausted to the bottom, the internal arc withstand is up to 20 kA 1 s.

Operating safety
Cable insulation test
In order to test cable insulation or look for faults, it is possible to inject a direct
current of up to 42 kVdc for 15 minutes through the cables via the RM6, without
disconnecting the connecting devices.
The earthing switch is closed and the moving earthing connection is opened
in order to inject the voltage via the “earthing covers”. This system, a built-in feature
of the RM6, requires the use of injection fingers (supplied as an option).
PE56823
Voltage indicator lamps
A device (supplied as an option) on all functional units makes it possible to check
the presence (or absence) of voltage in the cables.
Two types of indicator can be proposed according to network operating habits:
b a device with built-lamps, of the VPIS type (Voltage Presence Indicating System)
complying with standard IEC 61958.
PE56418
b or a system with separate luminous modules, of the VDS type (Voltage Detection
System) complying with standard IEC 61243-5.

The RM6 is boosted by the DE-Mt module
This air-insulated cubicle is fitted with conventional current transformers and
voltage transformers enabling invoicing of MV power. It has an internal arc withstand
and is integrated in the RM6 unit by a direct connection to the adjacent busbars.
Increased environmental insensitivity
b By eliminating risks related to MV cables (incorrect connection, non-compliance
with radius of curvature between two adjacent cubicles, etc.)
b Completely closed module (no opening to the bottom, no ventilation grid)
b Factory tested module.
A clear separation between MV and LV
Everything is done to avoid having to act on the MV compartment. The secondary
of CT and VT’s are cabled to the customer terminal in an LV compartment.
This LV compartment enables:
b connection to a remote power meter (in another room)
or
b connection to the LV unit mounted on the LV compartment (option).
An LV unit adapted to your requirements

Transformer protection
by circuit breaker
Unit characteristics
VIP 30, VIP 35
PE57165
PE57159
In contrast to fuses, the circuit breaker has no minimum breaking current,
which means that it is particularly well-adapted to transformer protection.
VIP 30 and VIP 35 self-powered protection relays
VIP 30
VIP 30 and VIP 35 are self-powered relays, requiring no auxiliary power supply,
which are fed by current sensors, activating a MITOP release.
b VIP 30 protects against phase to phase faults.
b VIP 35 protects against phase to phase faults and earth faults.
VIP 35
Protection system
The protection system operates without an auxiliary power supply, and includes:
b 3 transformers with integrated toroids on the transformer feeder bushings
b 1 VIP 30 or VIP 35 electronic relay
b 1 release
b 1 test connector to check whether the protection unit is operating correctly,
using the VAP 6 unit.
Description
b The relays are assembled in a housing, and the front faces are protected
a transparent cover. The whole assembly has a degree of protection of IP54.
b Settings are made on the front, using rotary switches.
b The phase operating current is adjusted directly according to the transformer
rating and the operating voltage.
b The earth current set point is adjusted according to the network characteristics.
Phase protection
b Phase protection is provided by an IDMT set point which operates as of 1.2 times
the operating current (Is). VIP 30 and VIP 35 phase protections are identical.
Earth protection
b Earth fault protection operates with measurement of the residual current carried
out using the sum of the secondary currents of the sensors.
b Earth protection operates in definite time: both its set point and time delay
are adjustable.
Indication
b A red flag appears on the front plate once the circuit breaker has tripped on fault.

Line and transformer protection
by circuit breaker
Unit characteristics
VIP 300
PE57160
The 630 A circuit breaker has been designed to protect Medium Voltage feeders as
near to the fault as possible. The protection unit is identical to that of the 200 A circuit
breaker, with a VIP 300 relay adapted to network protection.
VIP 300 self-powered protection relay
VIP 300 protects against phase to phase faults and earth faults. The choice of tripping
curves, and the multiplicity of settings enable it to be used with a wide variety of
discrimination plans.
VIP 300 is a self-powered relay which obtains its power supply from current sensors.
It does not need an auxiliary power supply. It actuates a release.
VIP 300
Description
The operating principle of the protection unit is the same as for the VIP 30
and VIP 35 relays.
Phase protection
Phase protection has two independently adjustable set points:
b either an IDMT or definite low set point can be selected. The IDMT curves
are in conformity with the IEC 60255-3 standard. They are of the inverse,
very inverse and extremely inverse type.
b the high set point is a definite time one.
Earth protection
b Earth fault protection operates with measurement of the residual current carried
out using the sum of the secondary currents of the sensors.
b As with phase protection. earth protection has two independently adjustable
set points.
Indication
DE57987
b A red flag appears on the front plate once the circuit breaker has tripped on fault.
b Two indicators on the relay show the origin of tripping (phase or earth).
They remain in position after the relay power supply is cut off.
b Two LED indicators (phase and earth) indicate that the low set point has been
exceeded and its time delay is in progress.

Transformer protection
by fuse-switches
Unit characteristics
Ratings for fuses for transformer protection depend, among other points,
on the following criteria:
b service voltage
b transformer rating
b thermal dissipation of the fuses
b fuse technology (manufacturer).
Type of fuse may be installed:
b Fusarc CF type: according to IEC 60282-1 dimensional standard,
with or without striker.
Example (using the selection table below) general case, for protection of a 400 kVA
transformer at 10 kV, Fusarc CF fuses with a rating of 50 A are chosen.
Fuse replacement
IEC recommendations stipulate that when
a fuse has blown, all three fuses must be replaced.
Correct operation of the RM6 is not guaranteed when using fuses from other
manufacturers.

PE56422
PE56421
Easergy T200 I is a “plug and play” or multifunction interface that integrates
all the functional units necessary for remote supervision and control of the RM6:
b acquisition of the different types of information: switch position, fault detectors,
current values...
b transmission of switch open/close orders
b exchanges with the control center.
Required particularly during outages in the network, Easergy T200 I is of proven
reliability and availability, being able to ensure switchgear operation at any moment.
It is simple to set up and to operate.

PE56423
Local information and control
b Easergy T200 I is designed to be connected directly to the MV switchgear,
without requiring a special converter.
b It has a simple front plate for local operation, which allows management of
electrical rating mechanisms (local/remote switch) and display of information
concerning switchgear status.
b It has an integrated MV network fault current detection system (overcurrent and
zero sequence) with detection set points that can be configured channel by channel
(current value and fault current duration).

Back up power supply
b Easergy T200 I has undergone severe MV electrical stress withstand tests.
b It is a backed up power supply which guarantees continuity of service for several
hours in case of loss of the auxiliary source, and supplies power to the Easergy T200 I
and the MV switchgear motor mechanisms.
b Ready to plug
v Easergy T200 I is delivered with a kit that makes it easy to connect the motor
mechanisms and collect measurements.
v the telecontrol cabinet connectors are polarized to avoid any errors during
installation or maintenance interventions.
v current measurement acquisition sensors are of the split type (to facilitate
their installation) or of closed type mounted on RM6 bushings.
v works with 24 Vdc and 48 Vdc motor units.

Network remote control
Automatic transfer systems
Because a MV power supply interruption
is unacceptable especially in critical
applications, an automatic system
is required for MV source transfer.
For your peace of mind, RM6 gives automatic control and management of power
sources in your Medium Voltage secondary distribution network with a short transfer
time (less than 10 seconds), guaranteeing the hi-reliability of your installation.
PE57771
Automatic control is performed by Easergy T200 I. This T200 I device can also be used
for remote control with a wide range of modems and protocols.
By default, the T200 I is provided with the RS232 modem and the Modbus/IP protocol.
An ATS solution is made of:

The remaining operation of the changeover sequence depends on the configuration
of the “Generator channel closing” option:
b Case 1 “Generator channel closing after Generator power on”: the Generator
channel closing order is sent only when Generator voltage is detected.
b Case 2 “Generator channel closing after Generator start-up order”: immediately
after sending the Generator start-up order, the closing order is given to the Generator
channel, without waiting until the Generator is actually started.

Other functions
ATS in ON/OFF mode
The ATS system can be switched on or off from the local control panel (T200 I)
or remotely (Scada system).
When the ATS is OFF, the RM6 switches can be electrically actuated by local
or remote control (operation in parallel mode is therefore possible).
ATS in parallel mode upon Auto return
Activating this option enables paralleling of the channels by the automatic transfer
system, during the phase of automatic return to the priority channel.
To be used when the ATS is in “Auto” mode.
Application: synchronization of the voltages of the main power supply line and
the backup line allows return to the main line without any interruption.
Generator ON override command
Activation of the ATS and transfer on Generator can be activated upon an order:
remotely or through dedicated digital input.
Applications:
b Periodic maintenance tests of the ATS/Generator system
b Switch on Generator when the Network is overloaded.
During peak hours, and if network is overloaded, Utility can send a remote order that
will activate Generator. Having this facility, it will allow a private customer to negotiate
better tariff of electricity.

General
type A
type B / C
b The profiles, contacts and dimensions of the RM6 connection interfaces are
defined by the IEC 60137 standard.
b 100% of the epoxy resin interfaces undergo dielectric testing at power frequency
and partial discharge tests.
b An insulated connector must used in order to guarantee the dielectric
performance over time. Schneider Electric recommends using nkt connectors.
Appropriateness for use
Types of connection interface
The bushings carry the electrical current from the outside to the inside
of the enclosure, which is filled with SF6 gas, ensuring insulation between
the live conductors and the frame.
There are 3 types of bushing, which are defined by their short-time withstand
current:
b Type A: 200 A: 12.5 kA 1 s and 31.5 kA peak (plug-in)
b Type B: 400 A: 16 kA 1 s and 40 kA peak (plug-in)
b Type C: 630 A: 25 kA 1 s, 21 kA 3 s and 62.5 kA peak (disconnectable M16).
How to define the connection interface
The connection interfaces depend on specific criteria, such as:
Installation
This information must be specified for better
definition of the connection interfaces.

b Current rating of the connected equipment: 200, 400, 630 A
b Short-time withstand current for 12.5 kA, 16 kA, 25 kA switch and circuit breaker
functions
b For the fuse-switch combination function, as the short-circuit current is limited
by the fuse, the connection interface will be of type A (200 A)
b Minimum phase expansion length
b Connection type:
v plug in: multicontact ring
v disconnectable: bolted.
b Output position: straight, elbow.

Floor mounting
Additional raising plinth
The RM6 is supported by 2 metal feet with holes for mounting:
b on a flat floor fitted with trenches, passages or ducts
b on concrete footing
b on studs
b on metal rails
b etc.
As an option, the RM6 can be fitted with a 260 or 520 mm raising plinth.
This addition, which simplifies civil engineering works, results in trenches
of a smaller depth, or even in their complete elimination when the bending
radius of the cables allows it.
The plinth is mounted directly on the floor.
