Grounding Switches

GCO-C Grounding Switch

GCO-C Overview 

The GCO-C is a single pole, hookstick operated switch for grounding PTs and CTs within a substation.  The switch utilizes a single insulator that mounts to a single channel base on switch ratings up to 69 kV, and a double channel on switches rated 115 kV and 138 kV. The switch features the same great design characteristics as the LCO-C giving you the Cleaveland/Price advantage.

Grounding Switches



The Cleaveland/Price GND-C is a group operated ground switch that can be supplied in a three pole, four pole, or even five pole configuration. The switch is suitable for line, load, or capacitor grounding but is not designed for high speed fault closing applications. The switch pole units can be mounted on a single support beam or pedestal structure as a stand alone switch. The ground switch can be provided as an option to attach to the hinge or jaw end of a three phase disconnect switch.

Group Operated Switch Overview

138 kV CB-A InstallationCleaveland/Price offers many group operated switch types including vertical break, center break, double end break and single end break.  All of the switches are available with copper current carrying parts.  The switches are typically supplied as three pole switches for substation, transmission, and distribution applications. The switches can be mounted in the horizontal-upright, vertical, horizontal-underhung, or inclined position.

The switches are suitable for use in a variety of applications including line disconnecting and sectionalizing, circuit breaker by-pass and isolation, and transformer isolation.  Arc horns or quick break whips are available when small amounts of transformer magnetizing currents or line charging currents must be interrupted.

Full load break attachments are available for vertical break switches. Accessories needed to adapt the switch to a customer’s particular requirements are available.

The switch may be manually operated by use of a swing handle or wormgear mechanism or electrically operated by use of a Cleaveland/Price TP-C2 motor operator.

Cleaveland/Price’s switches meet ANSI C37, NEMA, and IEEE Standards and the rating requirements of IEC Standards.
