38kV 25kA Molded Vacuum Interrupter

The new 38kV 25 kA Molded Vacuum Interrupter (MVI) from Thomas & Betts incorporates Elastimold’s combination of EPDM molded insulation with a vacuum interrupter. This latest addition to the company's solid-dielectric family of switchgear uses a 25kA symmetrical vacuum bottle interrupter and a magnetic actuator mechanism, along with the current sensor and a broad line of control options, ranging from Thomas & Betts' internal E-Set software to its 80 Control or the SEL 351 Relay.

The small, lightweight unit is maintenance-free and environmentally friendly, containing no gas or oil and is available for subsurface, vault, tower, padmount or riser-pole applications.
