The Transmaster Electric Furnace Switch controls the operation of electric furnaces, which require large amounts of power under heavy duty conditions. The Transmaster was developed to eliminate frequent and costly circuit breaker maintenance. The Transmaster is a low cost, heavy duty vacuum switch designed to deliver maintenance-free switching of electric furnaces.
The VBT Transmaster switch provides reliable and safe interruption. Interruption takes place inside a sealed vacuum interrupter which eliminates all external arcing, contamination of contacts, and generates no hazardous gases. The interrupter is enclosed in a housing and insulated with the field proven Joslyte™ solid dielectric foam.
The VBT Transmaster's rugged, compact design makes this unit ideal for transformer vault installation. The VBT operates uniformly on all power factors and is available for system voltages up to 69kV.
