Regulator Bypass Switches
Type XL (sequenced) and Type NL (non-sequenced) for outdoor distribution, 14.4 kV and 25 kV
S&C Regulator Bypass Switches are station-type devices used to bypass and isolate voltage regulators for maintenance
Regulator Bypass Switches are available in two versions:
- Type XL, which provides built-in mechanical interlocking, sequencing, and synchronization, and
- Type NL, which performs the same functions as Type XL but requires that the operator provide the sequenced operation.
All blades are of double-member hard-drawn copper construction. Silver-to-silver contacts are utilized at all current-transfer points. Stainless-steel or beryllium-copper loading springs behind the contact areas of the blades keep the contacts under constant pressure, and provide smooth, positive wiping action during opening and closing.
Regulator Bypass Switches are available with a choice of Cypoxy™ or porcelain station post insulators
Types XL and NL Regulator Bypass Switches are available in the following ratings:
♠ 600 amperes for Type XL, 1200 amperes for Type NL.
