Gang Operated Polymer Air Brake Switch

Gang Operated Polymer Air Brake Switch

Air Brake switches are three phases gang operated type and use in outdoor only. The application of this product is to seperate the transformer from the distribution network.


Our GOAB switches are manufactured and tested as per IS 9921 (Part-4):1985, IS 9920, and IEC 62271-102, IEC-265.


Our tilting type AB switch have 2 pole/ 3 pole (As Per Customer Request) construction and suitable for vertical / horizontal mounting with manual operation mechanism.

Each pole consists of galvanised steel / FRP base, Polymeric post insulators, self aligning type contacts made of hard drawn electrolytic copper / brass with silver / tin plated.

All the parts are accordingly finished to ensure interchangeability of similar components.  Flexible tape is of EC grade, Silver / tin plated copper of appropriate size to complete current path from moving contact to fix contact. all ferrous parts are hot dip galvanised and non ferrous parts are heavily tin/silver plated to avoid corrosion.

Our AB switches consists of one operating rod, one phase coupling square rod and one operating handle.

 In-House Testing Facility:

We have complete in house testing facility for GOAB switches. We are doing all the below test on our GOAB Switches as per relevant test standards during and after manufacturing on daily basis. 

  • Power Frequency Voltage Dry Test
  • Measurement of resistance of main circuit
  • Test to prove satisfactory operation
  • Dimensional Check
  • Galvanization test
  • Temperature Rise test

Type Test:

Advantages of Composite Insulators over Conventional Porcelain Insulators : 

  • Light weight, Ease of Installation and less transportation charge.
  • Resistance to breakage and vandalism.
  • Unique self-cleaning property, reduced maintenance cost.
  • Hydrophobicity and recovery of hydrophobicity make it suitable for polluted environment and salty atmosphere.
  • Low leakage current in long term ageing.
  • Resistance to puncher due to cutting age technology.
  • Superior UV & weather resistance properties.
  • Sustained hydrophobicity, resulting in lower leakage currents, reduced dry band arcing, and less risk of flashover,
  • Specially formulated high tracking resistance silicone rubber used for sheathing.
  • A higher mechanical strength to weight ratio which enables the construction of longer spans of towers.
