Actuating Systems

Our disconnectors, load break switches and earthing switches can be reliably operated by a matching actuating system (e.g. motor drive). We offer a range of manual and/or motorised solutions that meet most customer requirements. Depending on the environment a rigid operating rod assembly or a flexible linkage (Flexball®) can be used in order to transfer the force from the drive to the switch.

Motor Drive - MDR3:

The motor drive MDR3 is suitable for remote control and operation of disconnectors, load break switches and earthing switches. Various options like the integrated heating or the local electrical operation allow this product to be perfectly tailored to suit most customer requirements.

 

Motor Drive - MFL:

The powerful motor drive MFL is suitable for remote control and operation of up to two switches. Accessories like integrated heating allow operation in the harshest environments. Three construction sizes as well as a wide range of accessories allow this product to be perfectly tailored to suit most customer requirements.

 


Crank Handle
A crank handle offers a practical solution to operate switches if conditions do not allow the use of a motor drive. Accessories are also available optionally.

 


Rigid Operating Rod:
The force transfer from the crank handle or motor drive to the switchgear is being established by means of a linkage. Our rigid operating rod has been designed specifically to comply with our motor drives and to contribute positiveley to the quality and reliability of the entire system.

 


Flexball:
The Flexball® linkage offers a solution if space is limited (for instance inside tunnels) and conventional linkage systems cannot be used. This flexible linkage can transfer the required force for up to 17 meter and can easily be mounted to uneven surfaces.
