They’re specially designed for these live switching duties:
Line Switching – Load splitting (parallel or loop switching), load dropping, and associated charging currents
Transformer switching – Load currents and associated magnetizing currents
Cable switching – Load splitting (parallel or loop switching), load dropping, and associated charging currents
Alduti-Rupter Switches are available in voltage ratings through 69 kV in seven rugged group-operated, three-pole styles. They can be tailored to suit any configuration and mount on any structure. Alduti-Rupter Switches are offered in ratings of 600 through 2400 amperes continuous and 1600 amperes interrupting.
These time-proven, reliable switches provide no-external-arc circuit interruption of overhead
distribution feeders and outdoor distribution substations.
