The Royal BILT switch was designed to meet increasing demands for unobtrusive overhead distribution line construction. It is a compact switch for mounting directly in the line or on a single pole top insulator. It has the special feature of not placing the insulator in tension.
Applications of the BILT switch are for sectionalizing or tapping distribution lines from 7.5kV through 38kV. Current ratings are 900 amperes continuous, 40,000 amperes momentary. Installation of the BILT switch is simple. For a feeder tap, the conductor fastens directly to the switch base. For sectionalizing, a suspension insulator is used at one end of the switch. The switch may be dead-ended at a pole-top insulator by means of an extension link.
