INERTIA Engineering and Machine Works, Inc. adapted the industry leading design features of its distribution class G.O.A.B. switches, to produce an extremely high quality and cost effective, unitized sidebreak style transmission switch.
The ease of installation that unitized distribution class switches provide is now available for transmission class switches. The phase units are shipped as completely factory assembles and adjusted units. The actual configuration is delivered fully unitized or modularized for fast, simple and easy field installation.
The LineBOSS™ 48 kV – 72.5 kV sidebreak switches are the lowest “cost to own” switches available today. Fully unitized or modular switches are hung on the pole in hours, not days. These switches also provide lower operating costs. Unbalanced conductor load or seasonal temperature changes can create line sag leading to contact misalignment on other style switches. This maintenance headache is eliminated by the LineBoss™ sidebreak switch. Custom phase bases are available for installation on a wide variety of structures.
