Overhead Transmission Overview
Cleaveland/Price offers several models of operators for transmission applications. The models are designed to match the operating requirements of the switch.
The BT-T torsional operator is suitable for most switches that use a rotating motion of the vertical pipe to operate. For those switches that require high momentum to close and latch the switch, the accelerated speed BT-TF model is offered. For transmission switches that require a reciprocating motion to operate, we offer the BR-T and BR-TF operators.
All of the motor operators incorporate features critical for automation reliability. For transmission switching locations where charging voltage for the battery is not readily available, a solar charging option is available.
