Distribution Hoostick (DHS)
The next generation of distribution class hookstick switches. Our engineers have developed a modern switch that meets the needs for a versatile, light weight, reliable and economical method of distribution system isolation for utilities. The “DHS” is available in a 30 degrees inclined mounting position, with provision for surge arrester. In addition, the “DHS” can be cluster mounted for three phase applications on one bracket for quick install and compact configuration. The “DHS” is rated to 900A current capacity, 40kA momentary current. The “DHS” switch can be used in the system for isolating or sectionalizing for applications 15kV to 35kV.
In-Line Disconnect switch (AIB)
A single phase, hookstick operated disconnect switch designed for in-line suspended applications. The “AIB” mechanically supports the full tension of the distribution line and provides high voltage insulation when open. When combined with a load break tool, it can be used to interrupt the full current load of the line on systems up to 34.5kV. A popular and economical solution to pole mounted switches, the “AIB” requires no additional support brackets and is ideally suited for armless construction. MindCore’s “AIB” is the only switch on the market with a design where mechanical connections do not simultaneously carry current
