200A Loadbreak Elbow

The Richards 200A Loadbreak Elbow is a 200A class elbow for load break/load make operations with a hot-stick. The elbow is rated for up to 15kV and includes a standard probe interface for safe, reliable load break/make with 200A/15kV bushings and other accessories. More insulation. That’s what makes our Loadbreak Elbow better than other similar products on the market today. Additional insulation makes our elbow more reliable, enabling it to outlast competitors’ pieces. And yet, our 200A elbow is competitively priced. We do more testing than industry standards require. IEEE 386 requires either Impulse or AC Withstand. We run both on all of our products. Richards 200A Loadbreak Elbow was designed and validated against the following industry standards:

  • ANSI/IEEE Std 386: For Separable Insulated Connector Systems
  • ANSI C119.4: For Electric Connectors
  • IEEE Std 592: For Exposed Semiconducting Shields
IEEE 386 – Industry Minimum Requirements
