Solid Dielectric Vacuum Switches

Built on the performance-proven Ultra Series solid dielectric vacuum switch platform, Maysteel's UltraSync capacitor switches offer exceptional reliability and durability in synchronous close/zero voltage close applications. UltraSync switches are available with 200-A and 400-A ratings for 15-kV, 25-kV and 35-kV grounded-wye applications.

Available in either single-phase or three-phase configurations, UltraSync switches deliver 0-V closing within 800 millionths of a second when using the Valquest Z-Cap control.

The switches mitigate harmonics and switching disturbances that occur in back-to-back capacitor bank switching and large power capacitor bank switching; eliminate the material cost and space required for inrush reactors; and improve capacitor bank reliability.
