G&W model PRAM padmount switches feature load break switching capability in a totally sealed, dead front device. The switches are designed for use on 3-phase systems with voltages up to 38kV, 630A load break and continuous current, and 40kA asymmetrical momentary and close into fault ratings. They feature switch operators on the front side with all the bushings on the opposite side. The bushings are arranged in a straight line across the rear of the switch tank so that all the bushings are at the same height.
The switches are designed to IEEE C37.72 and C37.74 for load break capability.
