TripSaver® II Cutout-Mounted Recloser
Save money. Increase reliability.
A new lateral protection strategy using S&C's TripSaver II Cutout-Mounted Recloser can dramatically improve the way your utility responds to 80% of faults.
When a fault occurs, this Smart Grid solution eliminates momentary outages for customers on the main feeder by only blinking the affected laterals.
This approach saves money for the utility and its customers while improving reliability for all.
Compare TripSaver II reclosers with traditional fuse-saving and fuse-blowing lateral protection strategies. Choose each scenario, and click the right arrow under “Overhead Lateral Fault” to move through the simulations.

① For 50-Hz applications, specify Microprocessor Control for Application on 50-Hz systems, catalog number suffic "-F".
② Minimum trip current is 5 amperes.
⬤ Applicable for protection of single-phase-to-neutral circuits only in solidly-grounded-neutral (multi-grounded-neutral) 34.5-kV systems where leakage distance to ground meets user's requirement. Uses 25-kV 150-kV BIL mounting.
Installation & Operation Videos
TCC Curve Variety
Excellent coordination with other devices.
Local Manual Open
Breaks the load without a loadbreaking tool.
Up to three reclosings before it drops open with a visible open gap.
Communications with back-office system via gateway box option.
Fewer Sustained Interruptions
Cuts sustained service interruptions. Improves SAIFI and SAIDI.
Fewer Momentary Interruptions
Cuts momentary interruptions and improves MAIFI performance.
In-rush restraint feature always on. Will not nuisance trip on in-rush.
LCD screens display real-time device status with information scrolling.
Capability for device to break ¾" (20mm) of ice.
All reclosers drop open on three-phase laterals.
Can operate as a sectionalizer over a range of fault currents.
Service center configurable. Can reconfigure operating sequence.
Line-powered microprocessor control with no batteries needed.
