Overhead Distribution Cutouts


Product

Description
Distribution cutout for use on
overhead distribution system to
provide overcurrent protection
Fuse tube interchangeable with
S&C Type XS, Cooper Type L,
and AB Chance Type C cutouts
ICX

15 kV 38 kV, up to 16 kA

BIL)

Single insulator disconnect with


a double blade door and two 2hole extended NEMA pad terminals

Single-phase disconnect on
overhead distribution feeders
and in outdoor distribution substations.

continuous loads with a 40 kA
momentary rating

Provides overcurrent protection


for capacitor banks and gives
visible indication that the equipment is energized

Silicone rubber insulator (110 180 kV BIL) or polymer concrete insulator (110 & 125 kV
BIL)

Can be mounted like a standard


cutout: underhung, mounted
directly on a pole for use as a
disconnect between overhead
and underground lines, or as a
visible disconnect for maintenance of line equipment

Used for switching the magnetizing currents of single and threephase transformer banks and to
switch capacitive currents associated with underground feeder
cable at the riser pole

Cutout/arrester combination

Loadbreak single insulator disconnect with self-contained


loadbreak capabilities, a double
blade door, and two 2-hole
NEMA pad terminals

Single-phase disconnect on
overhead distribution feeders
and in outdoor distribution substations

and disconnecting reclosers or
voltage regulators, allowing
maintenance on equipment without service interruption
Can be mounted in the following
configurations: vertical or underhung, pole-mounted, or single or
double crossarm

RBD
Single-phase, non-loadbreak,
inline tension disconnect switch
with silicone insulator
Maximum voltage ratings: 15 kV
(150 BIL) or 27 kV (150 BIL)
Continuous current rating of 600
or 900 A
