Center Side Break Switch, Aluminum (AGCH5)

The AGCH5 is a two-insulator, side opening outdoor air disconnect switch constructed primarily of aluminum. Operation is accomplished by the rotation of two insulators making the center break switch the easiest operating of all group operated switches. Unique construction methods through years of field experience, coupled with simple design concepts provide ease of installation as well as long-term dependability.
