Capture Fault Current Limiters from Phoenix Electric Corp. protect existing switchgear and circuit breakers by allowing them to operate within their original short circuit ratings, making substations safer and the grid more reliable. Through Faultron electron tube technology by Advanced Fusion Systems, Capture controls and regulates fault current levels. Automatically resetting in microseconds or less, Capture also eliminates the need for fuses, the manpower and expense of changing them, and the cost and time of stocking them.
Capture Fault Current Limiter ratings are factory-set to customer specifications. 15 kV and 27 kV voltage class limiters have continuous current ratings up to 5000A and BIL ratings of 110 kV for 15 kV class limiters and 150 kV for 27 kV class limiters. An optional integrated monitoring system provides current and voltage information along with Capture's operational status.
