The old recloser controls and Load Break Switch controls without communication or not having required functions are currently operating on lines
The Recloser and the Load Break Switch have long-life span as electrical equipment, and they are not required radical change by technically or user requirements.
However, the Controls are classified as IT devices composed of electronic components, so they have quite short-life span comparing to electrical equipment.
In addition, technical requirements to the controls for automation and proper system operation have gradually been increased. For example, there are requirements for communication such as communication network and protocol, and proper protection elements for each system.
To reflect these user requirements, BH SYSTEM has been doing Retrofit Project by using our controls to interface with existing Load Break Switches and Reclosers currently operating on lines.
Retrofit project is implemented based on the BR-10S/SN Load Break Switch control or the BR-10RN Recloser control already proven in the field.
