Switchtec explains how outdoor lighting can be affected by potentially catastrophic events and how they can be protected
6 Pole Switch Disconnectors
The switch - disconnectors in it's different series,
are manufactured with high safety self-extinguishing
materials, providing an excellent level of electrical insulation,
low smoke emission and high resistance to
They comply with environmental requirements and
undergo strict quality controls for a reliable product
that meets the most demanding requirements.
They consist of a sandwich-type body containing self-cleaning
blade type contacts, with pre-arc zones to ensure long term,
fault-free energy transmission and coated with silver alloy for
long term electromechanical life. The detent mechanism
provides quick and independent switching due to the
accumulation of elastic potential energy, which is transmitted at
high speed to the contacts of arc extinction.
