The new VacStat vacuum, from Joslyn Hi-Voltage, provides real-time monitoring of vacuum interrupters. If a loss of vacuum is detected it blocks operation of the switch, provides local indication and actuates a relay contact that can be monitored remotely. The exciting new technology is now available in the VBM capacitor switches. The indicator tells the operator if there is a problem with the vacuum and the switch will not operate.
Features: Continuously monitors the vacuum interrupters; blocks electrical operation if problem is detected; local and remote indication of interrupter status; eliminates off-line routine vacuum interrupter inspections; increased reliability; reduces the risk of harm to your employees, customers, and assets; monitor is always on; vacuum status is provided in real time.
