Weezap

LV recloser for network and fault management

Overview

Network Operators are facing increasingly complex demand patterns due to rising EV ownership and the adoption of low carbon technologies.

Weezap is an advanced vacuum circuit breaker-based switch and recloser. It allows DNOs to adjust supply arrangements to connected circuits remotely and dynamically, in line with changing load and supply conditions.

Weezap protects the network, opening the circuit breaker in overload and fault conditions and providing automatic reclosing to facilitate quick supply recovery.​ ​It also collects information about fault activity, supporting fault location with Kelvatek's SELF and MELF based techniques.

Weezap operates in conjunction with Kelvatek’s Gateway management device that can be used to trip, close and configure multiple Weezap units. It can also be integrated with DNOs’ own network management systems.
