Viper Recloser Control

Viper-ST / Viper-S Recloser integrated with GE Multilin® R650 Control

G&W introduces an economical and versatile control package for the Viper line of solid-dielectric reclosers. The Viper Recloser Control (VRC) provides a customizable control package tailored to fit the needs of any recloser application. The VRC has been designed with reliability and versatility in mind. With the VRC, G&W can offer the Viper-ST packaged together with the SEL-351R3 Falcon, the SEL- 751A, or with virtually any other relay.

The VRC concept integrates the G&W driving electronics and an Intelligent Electronic Device (relay) into a single enclosure. Accessories such as communication or security devices can be added to the package.


  • Reliability – Every Viper Recloser Control is system tested with its Viper Recloser to the IEEE C37.60 / IEC 62271-111 standards before leaving the factory.
  • Lightweight and Economical – The VRC has been optimized to be a lightweight and economical control package.
  • Temperature Range – The Viper Recloser Control has been tested to operate in temperatures from -40°C to +65°C.

The ABB RER620 recloser control has been tested to the required standards allowing it to be paired with either a 15kV or 27kV, 12kA Viper-ST and sold as a complete package.  The enclosure is rated IPX5 and NEMA 3R which meets the 651R2 enclosure rating of NEMA 3R.  The ABB RER620 has an excellent feature set allowing it to be used in distribution overhead and automation applications. Some of the features include:


  • Accepts six LEA voltage sensing
  • Single or three phase tripping
  • Strong 61850 protocol platform
  • Internationally well-known
  • Extensive market experience and acceptance

The GE Multilin® R650 Recloser Control is a member of GE’s Multilin 650 family of field-proven protection and control devices, allowing customers to use the same platform both inside and outside the substation. This recloser controller delivers comprehensive performance in protection, monitoring, control, automatic network configuration and communications. With high speed, reliable performance this solution works to reduce customer outages and ensure fast recovery of medium voltage network sections for increased reliability of secondary distribution systems.


  • Protection and control- up to 32 programmable digital inputs; 16 digital outputs configurable PLC logic to IEC 61131-3
  • Advanced real-time monitoring, metering, and measurement
  • Enhanced user interface display with 16x40 graphics or standard 4x20 characters
  • Communication Protocols: DNP 3.0, IEC 61850 ed. 2, IEC 60870-5-101, 103 & 104, ect.
  • Optional fiber optic 100BaseFX Ethernet, single or redundant (PRP/HSR/RSTP)
  • Compact Case Size
  • Optional conformal coating for harsh environments
  • Extends the use of GE relays outside the substation for existing GE customers
  • Links with G&W LaZer Distribution Automation software

The SEL-651R Advanced Recloser Control offers exceptional protection and communications capabilities for Automatic Network Reconfiguration, three-phase and single-phase tripping, and other distribution automation needs. These capabilities help you maintain reliable service to as many customers as possible in the event of a fault.


  • Plug-and-work operation with multiple recloser types simplifies installations, reduces training, and reduces operation errors
  • Six voltage inputs support measurements on both sides of the recloser for advanced distribution automation and monitoring
  • ArcSenseTM technology(AST) detects and clears high-impedance faults
  • Single-phase tripping minimizes outage times and improves reliability
  • Comprehensive communications protocols and interfaces ease integration into distribution automation systems
