ACR - Automatic Circuit Recloser

An Automatic Circuit Recloser is a circuit breaker incorporating a multishot, autoclosing relay, installed on a medium voltage feeder. They are designed to trip when a fault is detected, then automatically reclose after a set amount of time in an attempt to clear transient faults on the feeder. They can save considerable time when restoring power.
