1. General description

1.1 CT10A type spring operating mechanism can be used for operating ZCW10-40.5, ZHW-40.5, ZF-40.5 and other types of outdoor AC HV vacuum circuit breaker, LW8-35 outdoor HV SF6 circuit breaker and other circuit breakers that with equivalent closing work. Its performance is in accordance with national standard: GB1984-2003 AC HV Circuit Breaker and ICE56 AC HV Circuit Breaker.

1.2 CT10A type operating mechanism’s closing spring has two energy charged types: by motor and by manual. Closing operation has closing electromagnet operation and manual button operation; opening operation has opening electromagnet operation, manual button operation and overcurrent tripping electromagnet operation.

1.3 Applying ambient conditions

a.The height above sea level:≤ 3000m;

b. Ambient temperature: -40℃~+40℃;

c. Relative humidity: the daily average humidity should be no more than 95%; the monthly average humidity should be no more than 90% (25℃); saturated vapor pressure: the daily average pressure should be no more than 2.2*10-3 MPa; the monthly average pressure of a month should be no more than 1.8*10-3 MPa;

d. Wind speed: ≤35m/s;

e. Pollution degree: II degree.

f. It should be installed in the place without dust, fire, chemical erosion, explosion, vapor and salt spray.

2. Technical data
