Title: SHIPPING CONFIGURATION TO REDUCE HEIGHT OF HIGH VOLTAGE DEAD TANK CIRCUIT BREAKER
Abstract:
A pole and actuating assembly for a circuit breaker includes a frame, a plurality of pole and actuating members including a pair of outer pole and actuating members fixed to the frame and a center pole and actuating member disposed there-between and rotatably fixed with respect to the frame. The center pole and actuating member, in an installation position, has a vertical height greater than a vertical height of each of the outer pole and actuating members. Bracket structure is coupled to the frame to permit rotation of the center pole and actuating member to be disposed securely at an acute angle with respect to the frame, thereby reducing the vertical height of the center pole and actuating member in a travel position thereof.
