The SWR12 is an OEM designed retrofit circuit breaker for both the South Wales Switchgear C & D range oil circuit breaker and the HG12 gas circuit breaker, to IEC 62271-100.
BRUSH Switchgear is proud of its heritage in the C and D range of switchgear which continue to work at the highest standards. Technological advances have allowed us to improve further and offer our customers a circuit breaker that boasts the award-winning magnetic actuator along with removing the need for SF6 gas.
The SWR12 circuit breaker is an effective retrofit solution – offering a new lease of life for existing switchgear. Utilising magnetic actuator technology with vacuum interrupters, the SWR12 is designed for 10,000 operations and a life expectancy of 30 years.
It is designed for retrofitting into existing switchboards without the need for panel modification.
