PFC Switch Replacement

The fuse switch built into this old-style Power Factor unit had failed in such a way that the rotary handle mechanism no longer functioned.


The unit was luckily fed via another MCCB in the LV panel so it was able to be isolated safely. The fuse switch was then removed and a new 200A load break switch was installed in its place using the original power cables.

A new interlocking handle and shaft were installed and then the unit was put back in service.
