Capacitor Switches: UltraVacLT - Vacuum Solid Dielectric
UltraVacLT Capacitor Switches (PATENT PENDING)
Capacitor switching applications often have demanding electrical and ambient operating requirements. Whether for indoor or outdoor applications, each installation has unique challenges. In the tradition of our time-proven UltraVac series of switches, the UltraVacLT 15kV capacitor switch is designed to meet these additional requirements while providing best-in-class performance. UltraVacLT conforms to ANSI C37.66 and IEC 815 Class IV (for heavy pollution).
Flexible for retrofit applications:
UltraVacLT is the smallest, most lightweight, capacitor switch in the fleet, and the single solenoid operator only requires 6A for proper operation. These minimal requirements make this switch an easy choice when performing field replacements of legacy solenoid switches, as well as field replacements of most legacy motor operated switches.
Flexible for confined space applications:
The UltraVacLT design is ideal for pad bank or other applications where space is limited. The mounting bracket is 290° adjustable to fit site requirements, and is limited only by the position relative to the operating handle.
Additionally, the mechanism is designed either for vertical or horizontal mounting as is often required when space is at a premium in pad-mounted and metal-enclosed capacitor banks.
Flexible for coastal and high contamination applications:
When distribution applications require a capacitor switch that can withstand coastal and other high contamination environments, UltraVacLT is the solution of choice. With appropriate options, UltraVacLT can be configured for these severe environments and for conformance to IEC 815 Class IV for heavy contamination applications.
