UNIVERSAL REGULATOR KIT (RK-11101K)

Regulators typically have reduced clearances because of their characteristic design and how they are commonly configured. These nominal clearances create a high risk for bird and animal contact. The high cost of replacing a regulator is another reason why it is crucial to protect such an important system asset.

Reliaguard® Regulator Guards offer complete coverage of energized components including series arresters and brackets, bushing terminals, and wire connectors. Reliaguard Regulator Guards have an overlapping design to ensure there are no gaps in coverage. Regulator Guards are available for Cooper and Siemens regulators with more in development.

Features

  • Adjustable design to accomodate a wide variety of shunt arresters and connection angles
  • Overlapping design to ensure there are no gaps in coverage
  • One box solution –  all parts needed to protect one single phase regulator

Technical Features

Designed to prevent wildlife caused outages, these guards are tested for application on equipment up to 38kV.

UNIVERSAL REGULATOR KIT

FIRST INSTALL

REGULATOR GUARD – ARRESTER PORTION

DE-ENERGIZED INSTALLATION NOTES

1.

Identify each arrester bracket guard as either left or right. Ensure the hinged side is up.

2.

Dry fit each guard on the arresters. Fingers should fit over first skirt of insulator, if not trim to fit.

3.

To trim guards to length, measure the following: Left : [A] to [B], edge of NEMA to first insulator skirt. Right: [C] to [D], edge of NEMA to first insulator skirt.

4.

Measure and mark trim lines for each guard. Trim with snips or shears.

5.

Dry fit guards once again to ensure proper fit. Guards should fully enclose energized portions of arrester and first skirt on each end, leaving only the center of insulator visible • Install push fasteners. Installation is complete.

Note that push fasteners are one-time-use and must be cut to be removed. Side cutters work best to remove.

SECOND INSTALL

REGULATOR GUARD – ARRESTER PORTION

DE-ENERGIZED INSTALLATION NOTES

1.

Install Conductor Cover if using.

If using conductor cover, ensure it is installed all the way down to wire connector.

2.

Align guard under top skirt of bushing, over previously-installed arrester guard.

3.

Dry fit bushing guard to ensure proper fit. Guard should enclose the top insulator skirt and align to arrester. Do not cover more than the top skirt.

4.

Mark and drill (1/4” hole) into arrestor at 2 existing bushing-section guard holes. These will secure bushing-section of guard to the arrester section.

5.

Install push pins in all 6 guard holes. Installation is complete.

Note that push fasteners are one-time-use and must be cut to be removed. Side cutters work best to remove.
