M Range Pusher Disconnectors
Rated up to 52kV, 1250A, 25kA/3secs, the M.L.E. range of M type disconnectors is a cost effective, reliable, and low maintenance design. The use of nickel plated solid copper switching blades dispenses with the need for flexible cables and pantographs that historically have been proved to be a source of trouble. The hinge end contacts are of the self cleaning design with independent pressure springs on each side. The whole assembly makes for a very robust and reliable design.

R Range Rocking Disconnectors
The M.L.E. range of R type switches and disconnectors is a reliable, robust, and long-standing design. They are particularly suited to substation applications, but due to their flexible design, can be installed throughout the distribution network, fitted with load break interrupter heads, and equipped with motorised operating mechanisms to suit each customer’s individual requirements. The type R can be rated up to 52kV, 1600A, 25kA/3secs, in accordance with IEC 62271:2008. Each disconnector can be factory fitted with a range of optional extras, including earth blades. Supporting steelwork can be provided to suit almost any application.

(Cat. No. RX2L/11) >>
All disconnectors & switches can be supplied with mechanically interlocked earth blades on `LIVE’ side or `DEAD’ side if required.
Load Break Switches
The fitting of MLE interrupter heads converts a basic rocking disconnector into a load break switch.
Disconnector-Fuses & Switch-Fuses
The basic rocking disconnector and load break switch can be combined with a variety of fuse arrangements to meet the requirements of most distribution systems.
We are always ready to consider any special requirements regarding the specifications or arrangement of our equipment.
Trip-All-Phase Switch-Fuse Combined Units
Trip all phase switch-fuse combined units are available up to and including 36kV, 400A 25kA/3secs.
To overcome the problems associated with ‘single phasing` caused when only one fuse in a supply blows, MLE have developed a unique system. The design is designated a ‘TRIP-ALL PHASE UNIT` (T.A.P.).
The principle of operation is that in the event that one or more of the TAP fuses blow, the fuse (or fuses) will swing downwards and strike a tripping bar. The tripping bar will release a spring-charged mechanism, which in turn will open the switch and isolate all 3 phases. The switch can also be operated manually for normal switching operations.
