This isolator is designed for the Electronic Centralised Blasting System, based on Model CBC-1 Control Unit and Model 571C Boosters. It is located at each station.
- It joins the inter-level shaft supply cables, which are normally interconnected to the outgoing cable, supplying all the Boosters in one level.
- It continuously indicates the state of the Centralised Blasting cable network.
- A lever Isolator key switch permits isolation of outgoing level supply cable and permits rapid location of short circuit faults.
- In ISOLATED mode the downstream level feed cable is connected to the TEST terminals, permitting testing of the cable for short circuit faults.
