Smart Sectionalizer Recloser®
The Southern States Smart Sectionalizer™, type SLS, is an economical, distribution class vacuum switching device that offers improved reliability to a distribution system. Using the SEL 2411 programmable automation controller, along with the integrated voltage and current sensors, the type SLS can be integrated into a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system to detect a fault, notify the SCADA Distribution Management System (DMS), and execute the SCADA DMS command to open or close the switch, confining outages to smaller segments on a line. This can drastically improve restoration and outage times when there is a loss of power.
This solid insulation device utilizes hydrophobic cycloaliphatic epoxy (HCEP) to offer superior performance and reliability in harsh outdoor conditions. Additionally, it comes standard with a magnetic actuator mechanism, 304 stainless steel mechanism tank, as well as an amber LED fault indicator light on the bottom of the switch.
The vacuum switching device is also compatible with other manufacturers protection relays that can offer recloser functionalities. These include the SEL 351R4, SEL 651RA, and SEL 651R2.
Physically Securing Substations and Critical Assets
The Electric Utility Industry has been around for over a hundred years, not at all much longer than Southern States has been providing products to the Utility Industry. During this time, our products and service offerings have evolved based on our customers' continually changing needs and requirements. This ability and willingness to fill our customers unsupported needs has led us to our newest offerings: Ballisti-Wall® and Ballisti-Cover® .
Both are constructed from multiple layers of woven fiberglass encapsulated with a proprietary resin system that produces a rigid panel with exceptional ballistic resistance. The unique composite matrix of the panels allow for the retention of the projectile to avoid potentially hazardous ricochet. These protection products offer ballistic resistant security with the additional performance advantages of durability, corrosion resistance, electrical non-conductivity, low thermal conductivity and light weight
Southern States has been providing solutions and services for the utility industry for nearly 100 years. Throughout this time, products, applications, and solutions have evolved along beside the electric utility industry, advancing to continue to meet customer needs and requirements. It’s because of the ever-evolving Southern States culture that now we are able to present our ballistic resistant products: Ballisti-Wall® and Ballisti-Cover®.
These ballistic resistant wall panels have been custom engineered and designed to prevent damage from projectiles. They offer high ballistic resistance and many significant advan
CI Agent Secondary Solution Tool
There’s no such thing as a “one size fits all” solution, when it comes to secondary containment solutions for oil-filled electrical equipment. Whether retro-fitting existing containment, designing ideal protection for a new substation, or ensuring SPCC compliance, each site is unique and requires a customized solution based on a number of variables. These variables include subsoil type, site topography, space or depth constraints, aesthetics, and many more. With variables differing from site to site, the design of the containment system will also change.
To assist in sorting through the factors that impact secondary containment design, we have created an interactive, easy-to-use, Secondary Containment Solutions Tool to serve as a guide for identifying the best solution for your site-specific situation. This dynamic application can be utilized for two different applications:
New Containment – For new construction sites or those that do not currently have containment
Existing Containment – For sites that do currently have containment, but are interested in retrofitting or different containment options
Use of the Secondary Containment Solutions Tool is extremely straight-forward. To begin, simply click on the type of solution you are seeking, New Containment or Existing Containment. A page will open displaying some of the available containment options offered by C.I.Agent Solutions. To narrow it down, click on the variables applicable to your situation at the top of the screen, and the tool will filter accordingly.
