Oil-Type Switches Support Capacitor Bank Switching

Maysteel Trinetics oil-type switches offer a time-proven and industry-tested product design that provides a cost-efficient solution to capacitor bank switching. Use them in SmartBank pole- or pad-mounted capacitor stations equipped with ProCap microprocessor controls to create a one-stop total capacitor solution.

Trinetics oil switches feature a higher continuous current rating than similar 20-kV switches. The Trinetics 20kV capacitor switch is rated for 90 A of continuous current versus 60 A for similarly rated oil capacitor switches, providing fast,efficient delivery of electricity. Both versions are available with true BIL for long life and enhanced power performance
