Quick Break Whip

Increase Line Drop Capabilities

The Quick Break Whip increases the line dropping capability of a disconnect by increasing the speed of contact separation during the opening of a switch. It is difficult to specify the exact level of interrupting capability as factors such as phase spacing, wind, rain, humidity, and atmospheric pollution will affect the arc that is drawn as the whip contact separates from the jaw of the switch. Over time the capability of the whip type arcing horn is affected due to the change in length of the whip resulting from the arcing that occurs during interruption.
