A type of switch which uses an air-like dielectric & arc quenching medium is known as an air break switch. So the contacts of this switch will open within the air. This switch is reliable and very effective as compared to other switches. This kind of switch is operated by hand once its handle is located on ground level.
Insulect manufacture side-break and vertical-break air insulated load break switches. Within this range we produce several versions and customise to suit individual network requirements. Air Break Switches are widely installed throughout distribution networks for use as both isolating and switching points.
The LBS is an air load break switch with attached power fuses. A striker is incorporated into this unit, a feature which is not found in conventional load break switches. The striker is a trip mechanism which operates the moment the fuse blows. When this occurs the striker causes all 3-pole to open at the same time.
Quick and cost effective conversion of existing switches - installation on most group-operated isolating switches
Wide operating range - May be used for full load interruption up to 34.5kV
Optional voltage limiter - Expands capability for transmission line charging current and transformer-magnetizing current interruption at voltages up to 72.5kV, in addition to providing 2,000 amp of loop splitting or parallel switching capability
Long, low maintenance service life - Virtually maintenance-free; requires only an inspection every 5 years or 5,000 operations.
It is geared with a vacuum circuit breaker and an Air Load Break Switch.Its compact design needs the least possible space to set up and operate.
In the modern power distribution system, RMU is widely utilized across the globe.
They are used to meet the growing necessity of reliable energy.
It is one solution along with comprehensive capabilities.
