following features:
 The earthing switches shall be motor-operated with manual operation as a
back-up. The mechanism shall be equipped with a mechanical lever for
manual operation during maintenance and emergency operation. When the
lever is used, the motor circuit shall be isolated.
 The operating mechanism should be located in painted aluminum cabinet,
same requirements for corrosion resistance and degree of protection as the
operating mechanism of the disconnecting circuit breaker.
 A heating element shall be included in the operating mechanism of the
earthing switch.
 The earthing switch shall be operated by a motor connected to the operating
shaft, either directly or through a gear train.

1.6.6 Support structures


Each disconnecting circuit breaker pole should be mounted on its separate support
structure. Alternatively, the three poles can be mounted on a common support beam.
The support structure should be made of hot-dip galvanized steel.
The zinc coating shall comply with EN-ISO 1461, DIN 50976 or ASTM A123 and
ASTM A153 (for fasteners).

ground clearance to lower part of insulator.
1.6.7 Central control cabinet/Integrated control cabinet (when applicable)
Applicable for single pole operated disconnecting circuit breakers. In order to achieve

above.
The requirements for internal cabling and terminals in the operating mechanism
cabinets are otherwise valid.
1.6.8 Controlled switching (when applicable)
Controlled switching by means of adaptive type will be the preferred method, unless it
can be proven by field experience that said method does not dramatically improve
system reliability/operability.
For energizing of no-load transformers, controlled switching by means of remnant flux
calculation is preferable; however this shall be observed on a case-by-case basis,
depending on field experience with similar system configuration characteristics.
