Product information

The most versatile solution for your retrofit application and new projects

With its HB3-Compact Siemens provides an unique generator circuit breaker solution to the most challenging constraints. It offers one of the highest level of customization: The HB3-C can be mounted either vertically or horizontally, its phase-to phase spacing and phase height axis can be adjusted to match perfectly the existing busbar connection points. Optionally, the circuit-breaker can be fitted with integrated line disconnecting switch and earth disconnecting switch on generator side and/or on transformer side.

A compact design that meets all requirements:

  • Common or individual supporting frame design
  • Vertical or horizontal installation
  • Maintenance free vacuum technology with up to 10,000 operating cycles at full nominal rated current
  • Features full-spring operating mechanism stated to be the most reliable* way to operate a GCB with lifespan up to 20,000 operation
  • Equipped with sealed-for-lifetime** vacuum interrupter
  • Simplified footprint without dynamic forces during switching operations that facilitates designing and sizing of the GCB supporting structure
  • Effortless on-site erection thanks to forklift-ready design or retractable wheels
  • Can be delivered with integrated line disconnecting switch and earth disconnecting switch on generator side and / or transformer side

* Most reliable operating mechanism as per final report number A3-00 from the CIGRE 2012 General Report SC A3.
