VS Series vacuum switches

The VS Series vacuum switch combines the extended operating life and maintenance-free benefits of a vacuum interrupter with the insulation advantages of oil. The switch is designed to perform in excess of 30,000 operations and switch should last over 30 years under normal operating conditions.

Features of the VS Series vacuum switch include:

  • The 24kV switch is the highest voltage single-phase switch on the market. The 24kV switch can also be used to provide more cost effective three phase capacitor bank switching on 23kV ungrounded systems and 38kV grounded systems.
  • An extended vacuum bottle gap, compared to competitive products, helps the switch achieve TRUE BIL levels; when the switch is open, the BIL rating is not reduced. Performance is not sacrificed, as the vacuum bottle is still good for at least 30,000 operations.
  • The switch is motor-operated and draws only 3 amps versus 12 amps for equivalent solenoid-operated vacuum switches. The motor is more forgiving during poor power factor or low voltage conditions, operating properly within a voltage range of 100-130 VAC for a 120 VAC nominal secondary voltage system.
  • The option of complete manual operation. An external power source is not required to close the switch manually.
  • Direct replacement for all current and previously manufactured oil switches currently installed on pole-mount capacitor banks. It's easy to upgrade your existing pole-mount capacitor banks with our maintenance-free, long-life vacuum switch without any additional wiring or hardware.

Available designs

    VS Series vacuum switch is available in 15kV and 24kV designs.

    The VS Series vacuum switch fully conforms to ANSI Standard C37.6
