The tower-mounted device installs into existing rightaways without the need to secure a permit or buy land, allowing you to efficiently sectionalize transmission lines, transfer loads, and connect new customers. These power-operated Circuit-Switchers can be SCADA-operated even in the most remote locations.

Mark V Circuit-Switchers are available in a variety of mounting styles with optional pre-insertion inductors for use in single-bank and multiple-bank (back-to-back) capacitor switching. When fitted with these pre-insertion inductors, the device can minimize capacitor-bank switching transients, markedly improving power quality and reliability.

Mark V Circuit-Switchers are available with continuous current ratings of 1200, 1600, and 2000 amperes.

The Mark V Circuit-Switcher uses an in-series circuit-breaking interrupter and a circuit-making and isolating disconnect, making it especially suited for the switching and protection of transformers, lines, cables, capacitor banks, and line-connected or tertiary-connected shunt reactors. The Mark V Circuit-Switcher is available in three styles—Vertical-Break, Center-Break, and Integer.
