Recloser Control

With feeder protection in place, you can take advantage of SEL recloser controls to improve the reliability of your distribution system.

Our advanced recloser controls ensure maximum reliability for your customers by clearing temporary faults and isolating outages to the smallest possible section of the system.

SEL recloser controls are compatible with many recloser models and offer advanced protection and automation capabilities.

Plus, when you choose an SEL solution, you get more than just a product—you get the industry’s best customer service and technical support. 

Minimize customer outages and improve reliability metrics with:

  • Coordinated high-speed fault isolation and restoration.
  • Three-phase or single-phase tripping.
  • Fast islanding detection and precise synchronization. SEL recloser controls meet IEEE 1547-2018 protection requirements for safely interconnecting distributed energy resources (DERs).
  • Secure communication with IEDs.
  • Arc Sense technology — improve public safety and reduce wildfire risk by detecting downed conductors and high-impedance faults.
