The V2-CAV uses the same live parts as the V2-CA, however, the jaw end insulators are inclined. By having the jaw end insulators inclined, the cable conductors establish electrical clearance from the base at the jaw end without the need for wire guides or outriggers.
The inclined insulator design makes the switch better suited for low profile substations where a vertical break switch is desired. It is also ideal for transmission applications where conductor spacing is close and load interrupting devices are required.
This design is available from 23 kV through 230 kV.
