15kV 600A Single Pole Switch
This solenoid operated two pole switch has two applications. The first is to achieve 1000 amperes of current capacity at 15kV by connecting the two modules in parallel with buss bars. In this configuration it is used for arc furnace switching. When the modules are connected in parallel, three separate switch mechanisms are required to make a three phase set. This switch’s controls for arc furnace switching are shown starting here. The second application is in conjunction with the transverse single pole switch for switching capacitor banks at zero voltage. The control required for this application is found here. Repair parts are the same as for a 15kV three pole switch and are found starting here.
