Gerapid - High Speed DC Breaker
Gerapid is a high speed DC circuit breaker, suitable for protection of mains and semiconductors in railway and industrial applications.
They are special single pole breaker for application in all fixed installations, e.g. as feeder-breakers in tractionary substations (underground, trams, local trains), in industrial plant protection (electrolysis plants, mines or steel mills) or in particular physics research, for protection of the superconductive coils in purpose-built accelerators.
A wide range of models facilitates rated currents up to 8000A and rated voltages up to 3900V in accordance with IEC 947-2, EN 50123-2 and ANSI C37.14.
