Motor operating
drive

Hughes motor drives represent a complete solution from pole to SCADA. The wide model range is designed for disconnectors and earth switches of both reciprocating (up-down motion) or torsional (rotating motion) types. The applications are from lower voltage in trams to medium voltage in railways and electrical distribution, as well as heavy motor mechanisms in high voltage disconnectors and earth switches. 

The standard products can be customized with the assortment of internal components and external accessories.

Hughes Power System motor operating drive
  • Unique motor mechanism
  • Secure self-locking motor mechanism
  • Easy installation and compatible with most disconnectors

  • High quality stainless steel for cabinet and parts

MOTOR DRIVE DESCRIPTIONEOA500 UNIVERSAL DRIVE

Hughes EOA500 motor drive is a universal drive for disconnectors in electrical distribution networks and railways with the following advantages:

  • Complete solution from a pole to SCADA system;
  • Low maintenance. Hughes products are built to remain in operation for more than 30 years without major maintenance due to the highest quality materials used in the construction. 
  • Easy installation and compatible with most disconnectors;
  • Compact design;
  • Advanced motor mechanism that provides high operation torque with low start current when the disconnector's contacts shall open or close. Its unique design is one of the main features. The Neodymium magnetized DC motor starts rotating with high speed before the operation shaft is moving. It uses extra kinetic energy from the rotating mass as a booster in just that moment when a disconnector needs the most operation energy. The motor operation stops precise at its end position due to a regenerative function. It is a secure self locking mechanism;
  • External cabinet (1) of highest quality stainless steel. The use of stainless steel in accordance with DIN50049 / 3.1B, thanks to its non-magnetic properties, completely eliminates the occurrence of any kind of corrosion, including electrochemical corrosion over the entire life of the cabinet;
  • Special double roof (2) prevents the accumulation of the water / snow on the cabinet and protects from overheating of the internal part of the cabinet in hot climates;
  • Padlock facility handle (3) protects from unauthorized access;
  • Protection lips (4) from rain water;
  • Connector (5) for antenna remote control;
  • Rugged pole mounting brackets (6) for different pole types;
  • Door alarm switch (7) activates when the door is opened and sends the signal to the SCADA system. This feature notifies about access to the cabinet;
  • Inventive climate system (8) for long term reliability. The lower louvers have a combination of a polymeric fine filter and a PTC thermoelement, which creates a moving air stream to the upper louvers. This air stream always evens out the day and night effect. The bottom of the cabinet has 5 drainage holes with micro filter preventing water gathering in case of any condensation;
  • Inventive protection system (9) from water ingress via the outgoing drive shaft;

MOTOR DRIVE DESCRIPTIONEOA600 FOR RAILWAYS

Hughes EOA600 motor drive for disconnectors for railway applications has the following advantages:

  • Complete solution from a pole to SCADA system;
  • Low maintenance. Hughes products are built to remain in operation for more than 30 years without major maintenance due to the highest quality materials used in the construction. 
  • Super fast operations: 1.5 seconds - open or close, 1.2 seconds - to remote block or un-block, max 4 seconds - remote un-block – open disconnector – remote block;
  • The unit can be used for 1-2-3 pole type of disconnectors in DC (750 – 1500 – 3000VDC) and AC (15 kV 16.7Hz – 25 kV 50Hz) in AT and BT system architectures;
  • Very compact design, suitable for the railway infrastructures. Can be installed up to 4 units per one pole;
  • Advanced motor mechanism is a serial magnetized motor with high start torque that can be operated on AC or DC. The mechanism can be directly controlled by a 3 or 6-wire or an impulse motor controller from SCADA. The motor drives a trapezoidal screw via a gear box. The self-locking trapezoidal screw turns a fork that is connected to the outgoing shaft. This mechanism gives a superior output torque with a low start current. The outgoing shaft starts moving a moment after the high-speed motor starts rotating. The kinetic energy in the rotating mass of 2.5 kg boosts the outgoing operation torque. Safe self-locking motor mechanism;
  • Multiple choices of AC or DC powering;
  • External cabinet (1) of highest quality stainless steel. The use of stainless steel in accordance with DIN50049 / 3.1B, thanks to its non-magnetic properties, completely eliminates the occurrence of any kind of corrosion, including electrochemical corrosion over the entire life of the cabinet;
  • Multi function hand operation crank (2) is used for local operation and as locking facility to protect from unauthorized use;
  • Protection lips (3) from rain water;
  • Multiple gland flanges (4);
  • Optional bi-stable remote blocking unit is blocking mechanically and eclectically the motor mechanism operation. To speed up the close-open-close operation, the mechanism is fitted with a regenerative break system. That absorbs the kinetic energy when the mechanism has reached its end position. The safe remote blocking device is controlled by a totally separate system;
  • Optional test set in a rugged plastic flight case for local control of all functions via push buttons and LED indicators;
  • Louvers with polymeric micro fibre filter for cabinet ventilation in high and low positions;
  • Inventive climate system for long term reliability. The lower louvers have a combination of a polymeric fine filter and a PTC thermoelement, which creates a moving air stream to the upper louvers. This airstream always evens out the day and night effect. The bottom of the cabinet has 5 drainage holes with micro filter preventing water gathering in case of any condensation;
  • Inventive protection system (5) from water ingress via the outgoing drive shaft;
  • Multiple choices of pole mounting brackets (6);
