The El Jefe Motor Operator is specifically designed to be retrofit into new and existing
transformer voltage cabinets to provide safe and reliable remote operation of the LBOR.
Load-Break Operators (LBOR) switches are commonly found in transformers as a means of disconnecting the transformer’s winding from the MV loop feed.
LBOR switches are oil-immersed, rated for tens of thousands of full load current break operations, routinely operated by MV crews using a hot-stick for transformer electrical isolation.
LBOR switches are designed to be operated manually, and to ensure proper operation under a wide variety of operators, use a spring-toggle mechanism to ensure complete and fast switching operation regardless of the switch rotation speed or distance.
LBOR switches are inexpensive, rigged, and available for most distribution class pad-mounted oil-filled power transformers.
The El Jefe Motor operator may be retrofit inside the primary or secondary voltage compartments to accommodate the existing location of the transformer’s LBOR switch. The El Jefe may be rotated into any orientation to preserve proper voltage clearances and interferences with existing equipment.
