VCS-3 Three-Phase Vacuum Capacitor Switch


The versatile VCS-3 switch is designed for general purpose, capacitive current switching, and distribution applications. The three-phase switch combines the proven NOVA switchgear solid insulation system with advanced interruption and an efficient magnetic-actuator operating mechanism.

The environmentally safe, solid dielectric, cycloaliphatic epoxy contains no gas, oil, or foam. The magnetic actuator provides fast, reliable operation and eliminates the need for closing/opening springs and mechanical latches. Fewer moving parts results in less wear on mechanical components.

Sturdy operating handles for manual, hotstick close and open, are standard features, ensuring operational capabilities should control power be lost.
