Molded Vacuum Interrrupter Fits Through Wind Tower Doorways

The new Thomas & Betts Elastimold Molded Vacuum Interrrupter is the industry’s only unit of its kind designed to fit through wind tower doorways. The unit is maintenance-free and environmentally friendly, containing no gas or oil, and is available for subsurface, vault, tower, padmount or riser-pole applications.

The 38kV 25kA MVI incorporates Elastimold’s combination of EPDM molded insulation with a vacuum interrupter. This latest addition to the T&B Elastimold solid-dielectric family of switchgear uses a 25kA symmetrical vacuum bottle interrupter and a magnetic actuator mechanism, along with a current sensor and a broad line of control options, ranging from internal E-Set software to 80 Control or the SEL 351 Relay.
