The Royal type RVI38 vacuum interrupter is an economical way to convert an air break switch into a load break switch. The interrupter may be added to the following Royal switches – vertical break, side break, vee, center-break, and Type BT hookstick switches. Consult factory for switch types not listed.
-Full load switching at system voltages up to 38kV line-line.
-Loop splitting and parallel switching up to 170 kV provided maximum recovery voltages are not exceeded.
-Vacuum switch is enclosed in a fiberglass housing and encapsulated in a dielectric foam to protect and seal from the environment for years of maintenance-free service.
-Not a one shot device; the RVI38 can provide reliable full load interruptions time after time.
-High speed contact separation for reliable interruption inde- pendent of the speed of operation of the air break switch.
-The RVI38 does not adversely impact the electrical ratings of the disconnect switch. The current flows through the interrupter only briefly during the opening operation
of the disconnect switch.
