G&W 600A Load break switches can be equipped with dry well fuse canisters that accept general purpose current limiting fuses to provide overcurrent and fault protection. The switches also feature load break switching capability in a totally sealed, submersible, dead front device. The switches are designed for use on 3-phase systems with voltages up to 27kV, 600A load break and continuous current, and 40kA asymmetrical momentary and close into fault ratings. The switches are designed for installation in both subsurface and indoor (dry) vaults and are typically constructed with front access to switch operators and high voltage bushings.
The switches are designed to IEEE C37.71 and C37.74 for load break capability.
