A load break switch (LBS) is a type of electrical switch that is specifically designed for use in high voltage electrical systems. It is used to safely interrupt the flow of electricity in a circuit when maintenance or repairs are needed, or to isolate a section of the electrical system for testing purposes.
Load break switches are typically used in medium to high voltage electrical systems, and are designed to operate safely under load conditions. They can be manually operated or automatically controlled, and are typically housed in a protective enclosure to prevent accidental contact with live electrical components.
Load break switches are used in a variety of applications, including power transmission and distribution, industrial plants, and commercial buildings. They are an important component of electrical systems, as they allow for safe and reliable maintenance and repair of electrical equipment.
