Isolator Switches are safety devices designed to power down a circuit to allow for servicing and maintenance by cutting the power supply to isolated parts of the circuit. Isolator switches are used for a range of electrical appliances and applications, including power grids, kitchen tools, and more. An isolation switch acts as a circuit breaker on your mains electrical supply so that any electrical work that is going to take place within a property can be completed safely by a private electrician or anyone doing electrical work on your home.
What are Isolators and Switch Disconnectors used for?
All electrical equipment requires servicing and maintenance from time to time. Current protection devices such as isolators and switch disconnectors have become standard equipment and are installed in everything from domestic housing to electrical substations
Single Phase or 3 Phase Isolator Switch?
Fused isolator switches are divided into single-phase and three-phase devices. Standard models are single phase while a three-phase isolator is often preferred for very high-voltage equipment. These combine three isolator switches in one, providing a higher level of safety for the electrician or engineer about to carry out maintenance work.
