The new breaker uses CO2
as the insulating and arc extinguishing medium, substituting SF6
gas which has a higher global warming potential.
Removing the SF6
has been the predominant factor in reducing CO2
equivalent emissions by 18% over the products life cycle.
The LTA 72D1 uses the same type of mechanical spring drives as applied in ABB’s SF6
LTB product range. This provides our customers with IEC Class M2, 10,000 operation lifetime drives.
The LTA is also available as a Disconnecting Circuit Breaker
, where the disconnecting function is integrated in the breaker.
Applications Line, transformer, reactor and capacitor switching Switching of harmonic filters
