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.
In emergency situations or everyday switching operations, you want to be sure that a SCADA controlled switch is going to operate when needed. The Cleaveland/Price family of controllers incorporates critical for reliability features that give you the confidence that the switch will be ready for action. With thousands of installations throughout North America, Cleaveland/Price controllers have demonstrated their dependability in environments from the withering heat of the southwest desert to the bitter cold of Canadian winters to the high humidity and destructive lightning conditions of southeast US. Cleaveland/Price controllers can be retrofitted to almost any manufacturer’s transmission switch or distribution switch in overhead, underground, or padmount applications. Transparent to all protocols, the controllers will fit cleanly into any SCADA system. Cleaveland/Price has joined with other leading equipment suppliers to provide complete automation packages that fulfill the needs of our customers.
