B-1 Regulator Bypass Switch


The Bridges ElectricTM type B-1 regulator bypass switch is a simple and rugged three-bladed disconnect switch. Each blade is independently operated and is readily visible to the operator. The major safety feature of the type B-1 is that the bypass blade can be visually checked to ensure that it is open. This helps eliminate the possibility of the regulator being short-circuited when it is restored to service. Many available options and accessories make the type B-1 a flexible solution for regulator bypass schemes.
