CB-AV “V” Aluminum Center Break

The “V” configuration of the CB-AV makes the switch ideal for low profile substation installations. 

The switch can also be installed on a pole in phase-over-phase or phase-opposite arrangements for transmission line applications.  For transmission line applications at 115 kV through 161 kV, the switch can be supplied with high line charging current interrupting SuperwhipsTM.
