  • Patent number: 10451658
    Abstract: A dead front connector including an electrical coupling, a voltage tap, a voltage testing circuit. The electrical coupling is configured to electrically connect a power cable to a device. The voltage tap is configured to allow testing for the presence of a voltage between the power cable and the device. The voltage testing circuit is placed within the voltage tap. The voltage testing circuit includes an indicator configured to provide an indication when the voltage is present.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 6956458
    Abstract: A disconnector assembly is provided for an arrester. A non-conductive housing has first and second opposite ends separated by an internal chamber. A first electrical terminal is connected at the first end. A second electrical terminal is connected at the second end. A capacitor engages and extends between the first and second terminals in the internal chamber. A sparkgap is electrically parallel the capacitor between the first and second terminals. A cartridge with an explosive charge is positioned in the internal chamber, and the cartridge is electrically parallel the capacitor and electrically in series with the sparkgap.
