    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Applies to three-phase, alternating current switches and switch-disconnectors, with making and breaking current ratings, for indoor and outdoor installations, for rated voltages over 1 kV and less than 52 kV, and for rated frequencies from 16 2/3 Hz up to and including 60 Hz. Also applies to the operating devices of these switches and to their auxiliary equipment.
