Interruption equipment in modern distribution networks constitutes one of the most sensitive elements of the electricity supply chain. Designed for more demanding operations under severe conditions of electrical, mechanical, climatic, vandalism and environmental demands, winds, dust storms, rain, hail, altitudes with lower availability of oxygen, among others; In this area, Reclosers are the best solution for most engineers who operate and maintain distribution networks. In recent years, the evolution of drivers has made even the most advanced relay a little nervous about the competition regarding the functionality and protections available.

Recloser controllers are essentially industrial computers, which are a combination of: SCADA remote terminal unit (RTU), driving control and protection relays. They have an increasingly extensive checklist of functionalities.
