Overhead Transmission

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.





Overhead Distribution

Overhead Distribution Overview

Cleaveland/Price makes two types of controllers for overhead distribution switches; controllers for switches with vertical operating pipe and for those without operating pipe. Switches with operating pipe could have a torsional swing handle operator or a reciprocating pump handle operator.  For torsional pipe switches, Cleaveland/Price offers the BT-D controller. For reciprocating pipe switches, we offer the BR controller.

Some utilities favor switches that do not have vertical operating pipe. For these applications we offer the PTAD controller. With the PTAD controller, the motor mounts at switch level and the controller mounts beneath the switch (photo below).

The PTAD controller can be retrofitted to switches that presently have a vertical operating pipe. All of the motor operators incorporate features critical for automation reliability.
