The RBO-C is a non-sequencing bypass switch that can be used as a regulator bypass or recloser bypass if line protection is not required. It is available for substation as well as distribution applications. In substation applications, the switch is provided with 3″ b.c. insulators. In distribution applications the switch is provided with 2¼” b.c. insulators. The switch features the same great design characteristics as the LCO-C giving you the Cleaveland/Price advantage.
The RBO-C uses two parallel blades to isolate the regulator or recloser with a perpendicular blade providing the bypass function. With all three blades open, the circuit downstream of the switch is safely isolated. The switch can be provided with optional quick break whips for interrupting magnetizing current. The switch can be mounted in the underhung or vertical position. When mounted vertically, the bypass blade is angled away from the mounting surface to provide better access to the bypass blade hookeye and ease operation.
