Seismically Certified Sulfr hexafluoride Insulated Switches

Sulfr hexafluoride gas is a nontoxic, nonflammable switching dielec-tric. Dead-front switch construction eliminates any exposed live parts. Spring-assisted mechanisms assure quick-make, quick-break operation. Viewing win-dows permit visual verification of open or closed contacts. Tamper-resistant enclosures utilize penta-head bolts and padlocking provisions.
