Overhead line switch

Benefits that speak for themselves

Achieve highest efficiency levels
Our use of the best materials and our cutting-edge manufacturing process mean that the switches are highly efficient in all environmental conditions. The linkage guide consists of two guide rollers mounted in parallel, with minimal residual friction and therefore optimum power transmission.
Save time and hassle
The connection, joint and coupling parts are adapted to the assembly situation in question and are supplied in the required quantity. Our comprehensive aftersales services allow you to concentrate on your core business.
Increase your system’s reliability
The oil-poor arcing chamber has a quick-acting switching mechanism, which always guarantees faultless disconnection regardless of the overhead line switch’s switching speed.
Simplify maintenance
The switches are easy to install and set up on site and are practically maintenance-free.
Cut your investment costs
The switches guarantee a mechanical life of up to 10,000 cycles. Investment costs can be decreased thanks to the switches’ long service life and reliability in all environmental conditions.

Thanks to our development department including the best constructors and technicians, we were able to tackle the challenge and provide a highly efficient solution.
