Hastings, a worldwide manufacturer of hot-line tools and equipment, recently introduced load pickup/break switch products in single- and three-phase versions to its diverse catalog. The break switches allow a lineworker to install a temporary switch anywhere on their system.
The single- and three-phase versions are built to last, and they can be used in any weather conditions thanks to the vacuum-bottle design featuring high-grade silicone rubber and marine-grade aluminum.
These battery-operated products can be controlled manually using one-touch button functionality or operated wirelessly with a Siemens Connect USB Antenna. The battery modules are removable, allowing for easy replacement if needed.
Siemens Connect Software is included with these products, allowing users to wirelessly operate and monitor real-time system information such as line voltage and amperage via a laptop.
