Vacuum Interrupters

Key Features

  • Long life, high reliability
  • High interrupting speed
  • Freedom from catastrophic failure
  • Rapid dielectric recovery
  • High cycle withstand voltages
  • Environmentally friendly

Description

Jennings Technology designed the first vacuum interrupter in 1955. Since that time, Jennings has been producing high quality and high reliability interrupters for the utility and industrial markets. Jennings interrupter designs handle a wide range of both voltage and current interrupt levels. Vacuum being the most perfect dielectric allows the interrupter designs to have inherent benefits not found in many other interrupter designs. The interrupters are ideal for utility applications (up to 38.0 kV), industrial applications (up to 7.2 kV) and RF and DC applications (up to 50 kV and 40 kVDC).

Applications

  • Electrical power generation & distribution systems
  • Capacitor banks
  • Line dropping
  • High power transmitters
  • RF induction
  • Electric furnaces
