Plug-In Recloser Compatibility—Choose the SEL-351R Falcon for traditional 14-pin recloser applications. The control is a plug-compatible replacement for Eaton (Cooper) Form 3, 3A, 4, 4A, 4C, 4D, FXA, FXB, 5, and 6 recloser controls. The SEL-351R Falcon is compatible with popular reclosers from ABB (Joslyn), Eaton (Cooper), G&W, and Hawker Siddeley (Whipp & Bourne). Familiar “EZ” recloser control settings speed commissioning of the control.

Automatic Network Reconfiguration—Combine Mirrored Bits communications, directional elements, voltage elements, and SELogic control equations to optimize your solution for Automatic Network Reconfiguration.

Fault Location—Efficiently dispatch line inspection and repair personnel with the built-in fault locator and fault type identification. Identify recurring feeder trouble points to improve reliability.

Coordination—Selectively coordinate with upstream relays and recloser controls using a Mirrored Bits communications link for secure, high-speed fault clearing on distribution circuits. Also, use the oscillographic event report and Sequential Events Recorder (SER) data to measure and improve protection device coordination.


Lightweight and Rugged
One person can easily lift and quickly install this lightweight recloser control. The durable, painted aluminum enclosure will not rust and is rugged enough for line installation. This gasketless enclosure carries a NEMA 3R rating to ensure reliable performance in all weather conditions. A swing-open NEMA 3R enclosure with a gasketed door is also available.

acSELerator QuickSet SEL-5030 Software
QuickSet helps speed recloser control application settings by allowing you to develop settings offline, program SELogic control equations, and analyze post-fault event reports.

Relay- and Recloser-Compatible Time-Overcurrent Protection
U.S. (IEEE) and IEC relay curves, user-programmable curves, and all traditional recloser curves are included for maximum recloser control flexibility and coordination. Constant time adder, vertical multiplier, and minimum response time functions provide additional flexibility.

Large Operator Controls
Large programmable operator control interface pushbuttons provide easy recloser control. Control interface pushbuttons include a “Lock” function to prevent inadvertent operation. Pushbuttons are preprogrammed and labeled with popular recloser control switch functions but can be reprogrammed and relabeled to meet your unique application requirements.

Advanced Battery Charging and Monitoring System
The 120 Vac-Vdc-powered battery charging system monitors and tests the 24 Vdc battery. Includes automatic sleep and local wake-up function. 12 Vdc is available for powering modems and radio communications equipment (6 W continuous, 13 W for 1 second).

Per-Phase Operations Counter
Monitor breaker or recloser contact wear for each individual phase for efficient maintenance planning and troubleshooting.

  • Three-phase and synchronism voltage input interface.
  • Swing-open enclosure with gasketed door.
  • Additional digital inputs/outputs.
  • EIA-485 communications port.
  • User-configurable labels for operator controls and target LEDs.
  • Control and Low-Voltage Close Cables.
    SEL manufactures and sells control and low-voltage close cables for connecting SEL-351R Recloser Controls to Cooper reclosers in new or retrofit installations. Both the control and low-voltage close cables are available in a 10-foot standard length. Custom-order cables are available on a per-foot basis up to 100 feet.
    • Control Cable - C510.
    • Low-Voltage Close Cable - C515 (for use with the low-voltage close socket, 9250100, which provides an exterior receptacle on the SEL-351R Falcon enclosure that mates with C515).
