Manipulator
rod
new
development

Represented in three sizes up to at the user's choice

Manipulator rod is aimed for more convenient connecting of measuring cable clips to inputs of the high-voltage equipment from 35 to 220 kV with height up to 5 m from the ground without using ladders and elevators in order to measure its technical characteristics.

The manipulator rod is designed in 3 measures up to the customer desire depending on the equipment applicable:

Full lengh of the road, m

Weight of the instrument in working condition, kg

     Nominal voltage of electrical installation, kV
2.2    3.4 35
3.7    4.0 110
5.1    4.6 up to 220

This new product is a universal additional accessory recommended to be added to complete set of all the SKB instruments.

High voltage circuit breakers control instruments

Together with the instruments for circuit breakers control PKV/U3.1 and PKV/U3.0 we recommend to purchase manipulator rod aimed for cabels' poles connection from the ground or a tank cover without using ladders or levators.

Microohmmeters and micro milliohmmeters

Manipulator rod is recommended to be used together with micro ohmmeters and milli ohmmeter MIKO-21 and MIKO-2.3 for measuring cables connection from the ground or a tank cover to circuit breakers conductors and to other elements of HV disconnecting and grounding elements without using ladders or elevators for measuring transients electric resistance.

Milliohmmeters

If specialists use or plan to use mille ohmmeters MIKO-7 (MIKO-7M), MIKO-8M or MIKO-9, manipulator rod shall be essential accessory for measuring cables connection from power transformer tank up to 220 kV to HV winding elements without using ladders or elevators for measuring active electric resistance and dimagnitizing.

OLTC power transformers control instruments
When working with OLTC control instruments of power transformers PKR-2 and PKR-2M specialists may use manipulator rod for connecting measuring cables to power transformer tank cover up to 220 without using ladders or elevators for receiving oscillograms and circular diagrams of contractor operation.
Safety requirements and recommendations

Electrical personnel, certified not lower than the III group of electrical safety, having not lower than secondary education in the field of electrical engineering is allowed to work with the product.

  • Use of manipulator rod is only allowed on switched off high voltage electric equipment
  • When using manipulator rod it is important not to come close to the elements under the high voltage supply. It is vitally necessary to keep distance according to the "Rules on labor protection in the operation of electrical installations."
Weather conditions of operation

Manipulator rod is recommended to be stored and operated at a temperature range from -15 to + 40°C in the absence of impurities in the air, causing corrosion.

It is forbidden to use the rod in conditions of high humidity or rain.

Simplicity, availability and ease of use

Using the rod doesn’t cause any difficulties. It is important to follow the safety requirements and work according to the operating manual supplied together with the product.

Transportation of the instrument during operation to the place of work and back is allowed in the case for the rod, as well as a bag for the rest of the elements.

Technical and maintenance service

Maintenance means periodic inspection of the product on a subject of elements damage.

  • The damaged insulating rod (chips, cracks) should be replaced.
  • The rest of the elements (depending on the damage) can be repaired on site.
