GW4 Disconnect Switches
Center Break Disconnect Switch
GW4 series disconnect switches are structured in double columns for single
pole, one break, and horizontal rotary opening. There are two columns in
each phase. Supporting insulators at both ends are rotated horizontally by
the operating mechanism in performing the open and close operations. The
main conductive blade is mounted on the top of the supporting insulator. A
mechanical interlock is mounted between the earthing switch and the main
blade to ensure a correct operating sequence of the disconnect switch and
earthing switch.
Conductive Rod Contact Finger
Key Benefits
• A simple structure with fewer moving parts and lower operation torque
provide reliable, steady operation throughout the product lifecycle.
• Capable of handling higher induced current and voltage and meet the
requirements of IEC62271-102 standard type B.
• Convenient for installation and replacement due to independent
installation of conductive rod and moving contact.
Key Features
Flexible contacting outgoing base
The soft connection is applied between the terminal and conductive rod,
resulting in a design that is simple in structure with minimum contact
resistance and high conductive reliability.
GW4 Double Column Center Break Disconnect Switch
Strong current flow in conductive rod contact finger
The conductive rod contact finger is constructed using aluminum alloy,
resulting in a strong, light-weight design and a wide heat radiance area. The
stainless spring is located at the outside of the contacting plate to avoid shunt
through the spring. The contacting plate and the flexible joint are moleculewelded under high pressure as a whole, with only one contacting point in the
current passage to ensure strong current-carry ability.
The conductive rod contact head is made of aluminum alloy square pipe, the
design is strong and light-weight with a wide heat radiance area.
The contact results from bending the copper plate installed to the conductive
rod. This enlarges the electrical conduction area and results in ease of the
maintenance and component replacement. There is limited friction between
the plate contact and contact position in the switching operation.
Accurate transmission and ease of commission
The transmitting component is constructed using a stainless steel composite
shaft which is anti-corrosive with minor resistance force, and small fit
clearance.
The rotating parts and lever are positioned below the insulating porcelain
and comprise the installing structure and ensure accurate transmission. The
porcelain bottle can be raised through the lifter making commission and
adjustment easy to perform.

Throughout the production and assembly process, there are multiple
checkpoints in the documented test plan, including both visual and “stop flow”
inspections. The production facilities follow strict non-conforming procedures
to identify, control and avoid the use and delivery of non-conforming
products. Each production facility has developed strict environmental
standards, including controls of cleanliness, temperature and humidity, and
has controls in place to monitor and manage to the established standards.
In addition, XD|GE has a dedicated measuring and inspection department
with certified, full-time inspectors in each of its manufacturing sites.
The measuring and inspection department provides a secondary crossinspection for all work in process, as well as finished products, ensuring
quality is achieved throughout the manufacturing process. Quality data is
maintained and analyzed, per product family, in order to drive continual
product and process improvements and higher product reliability.
From raw materials acquisition and inspection to finished product, XD|GE’s
disconnect switches are designed to meet rigid quality processes that ensure
the installed product provides the highest level of reliability.
