The Bridges Electric type B-2 oil circuit recloser (O.C.R.) (or regulator) bypass switch utilizes the same blade and contact material as the type B-1 regulator bypass switch. Its design provides clearance for an O.C.R. bypass scheme, but can be used as a regulator bypass. Versatility is provided with optical backplate sets for underhung mounting or an angled pole bracket for mounting directly to the pole. Many available options and accessories make the type B-2 a flexible solution for O.C.R. and regulator bypass schemes.
