The BREAK-SAFE® is a jumper clamp that functions like a portable switch. It is designed to operate on overhead distribution lines in conjunction with a mechanical jumper.
The BREAK-SAFE® has three operating functions:
- LOAD BREAK
- LOAD PICKUP
- CONTINUOUS CURRENT DUTY
The BREAK-SAFE® is available with either a Floating or a Duckbill Head and comes in three models:
- 15 kV / 300 amp
- 27 kV / 300 amp
- 46 kV / 200 amp
MINIMUM SAFE DISTANCE
In order to keep personnel at a safe distance, the BREAK-SAFE® is operated with an insulated fiberglass hot stick for load break and load pick-up functions.
The Yellow Safety Lock is also operated by a hot stick and helps prevent the tool from an unintended load break or pickup operation.
