Cutouts

Eaton’s Cooper Power series distribution class cutouts are available in a variety of types: universal, arrester combinations and loadbreak types. All cutouts provide reliable overcurrent protection for primary distribution systems. Overcurrent protection safeguards an electric system from excessive currents produced by abnormal conditions such as line faults, line or equipment overloads or equipment failure. For the ultimate in reliability and dependability, Cooper Power series cutouts provide superior performance in harsh climates, including reduced cracking and breakage.

Core features

  • Fuseholders are interchangeable with polymer and procelain cutouts manufactured by S & C Electric Co. (Type XS), A.B. Chance Co. (Type C) and ABB (Type ICX).
  • The backbone of the UltraSIL polymer-insulated Type L cutout is comprised of an E-glass fiberglass rod with crimped-on galvanized steel hanger and end fittings
  • The porcelain Type L cutout is designed with a solid core, birdproof, one-piece porcelain frame with uniform shed configuration
  • The cast bronze lower hinge assembly has deep pockets for the trunnion to pivot to minimize accidental fuse removal
  • Loadbreak cutout consists of a heavy-duty arc reducing load interrupter mounted to the cutout frame. The interrupter together with the associated fuse holder provides a safe, reliable, loadbreaking device with visible break
  • Combining the functions of a distribution-class surge arrester with a fuse cutout provides the convenience of a compact, efficient unit with less pole-top hardware. Combining these units also provides easier installation, handling and procurement.

UltraSIL polymer-insulated 17 and 27 kV CMU fuse holder cutouts increase interrupting ratings and decrease exhaust

Eaton’s Cooper Power series UltraSIL polymer‑insulated cutout incorporates an industry-recognized silicone rubber insulating material with superior hydrophobic qualities. Eaton offers cutout polymer designs, which provide reliable overcurrent protection for primary distribution circuits.

Interchangeable Type-L fuse holders

Eaton's Cooper Power Series Type-L fuse holders are interchangeable with polymer and porcelain cutouts per IEEE C37.41. UltraSIL polymer-insulated Type L cutouts are comprised of an E-glass fiberglass rod with crimped-on galvanized steel hanger and end fittings. Porcelain Type-L cutouts are designed with a solid core, birdproof, one piece porcelain frame with uniform shed configuration. The fuse holders are constructed of an epoxy impregnated, glass filament wound tube over an arc-quenching inner liner material.

Complete protection with VariSTAR arrester

Dual benefits from Type-L fuseholders combined with a VariSTAR arresters create a complete protection package.
