Hubbell's Type BP3 Switch provides an economical means for bypassing and disconnecting a pole-mounted distribution recloser. This permits de-energized periodic maintenance of the recloser without interrupting service. The BP3 Switch accomplishes this with a combination of three disconnect switches mounted on a common base. By operating the blades in proper sequence, the recloser is bypassed and isolated from the distribution system.
Rated at 600 A or 900 A, the BP3 Switch is available in nominal ratings of 14.4-kV to 110-kV lightning impulse withstand (LIW); 25-kV to 125-kV, or 150-kV LIW; and 34.5-kV to 150-kV LIW. All are available with either a right or left opening direction of the bypass blade. The switch is available in both single-phase and three-phase configurations, and is shipped ready for installation.

Salisbury by Honeywell's new AS2000 is a weight-balancing arc-flash-protection face shield. The shield stows in a balanced, compact position, centered over the top of a standard or full-brim hard hat when not needed. The AS2000 has an ATPV rating of 20 cal/cm2 and uses nanotechnology to provide a clearer, more transparent window for improved visibility.

G&W Electric Co. introduces the Trident-S with SafeVu technology. The device combines an integral visible break feature with maintenance-free solid dielectric insulation. The design incorporates blade-type switching contacts in series with vacuum interrupters to provide the visible break. The visible break contacts are easily seen through large viewing windows and eliminate the need to remove elbows or use cumbersome linkage systems to provide the visible open. The device is lightweight, compact and fully submersible. It is suitable for any subsurface application such as oil fuse cutout replacement.

Motor Test Systems
Hipotronics Inc. has relaunched the MTS series, its newly designed low- and high-power motor test systems. These systems are designed to meet testing requirements for a large array of electric motors.
The MTS series features the company's Peschel variable transformers to ensure a rugged and reliable system while still maintaining a minimal footprint. Hipotronics' MTS design also includes the most basic features standard with all units: digital tachometer, digital wattmeter, temperature meter (Type J) and power factor meter. These features are controlled using a 10-inch PLC touchscreen and can be upgraded to included a variety of other measurements, such as a data acquisition system with software, dynamometer metering integration, polarity reversal, RTD temperature, phase balance, impedance supply, core loss supply, vibration analyzer, additional voltage taps and optional series field supply. In addition, the designs reduce initial startup and ownership costs by decreasing the high-voltage cable size required for mains wiring.

Meter Pedestal/Box Pad Combination
Nordic Fiberglass introduces the GS-37-39-MP-MG-22×22 meter pedestal/box pad combination. The fiberglass box pad accommodates single-phase transformers from 25 kVA up to 167 kVA. The box pad can be direct buried up to 9 inches in the ground. The underground raceway allows electrical cables to run from the box pad to the meters (meters not included). Companies can install up to three meter enclosures on the meter plastic pedestal. A large expansive meter pedestal interior makes installing meters easy. Penta-head locking is standard for the pedestal and is pad-lockable ready.
