H. ACCEPTABLE MANUFACTURERS
DME will only accept proposals from specific manufacturers listed in the approved
manufacturers list below.
1. Siemens – Formerly Bridges Electric Inc.
2. S&C Electric Company
Only bids from the two above switch manufacturers will be accepted for this bid since specific
catalog numbers of both switch manufacturers were listed as individual line items. Denton
Municipal Electric has used both of these specific switch manufacturers in the past with
successful results. GOAB switches are typically used to transfer and switch high ampacity
substation distribution circuit feeders during routine times, frequent operational switching
occasions and during electrical outage conditions. Since the GOAB switches and interrupters are
of utmost importance for customer reliability and crew safety, Denton Municipal Electric will
only accept bids from the specific manufacturers for the catalog numbers listed on the bid
proposal sheet.
The City has implemented a pre-approval process for substitution commodities and services.
The commodity approval form can be obtained via email ([email protected]).
Supporting documentation or samples must be submitted for review by Purchasing, Engineering,
field crews, QAG (Quality Assurance Group), and the manager of Denton Municipal Electric.
Testing may be required and may take substantial time to review. Vendors are encouraged to
submit forms and samples for consideration on the next solicitation for similar items.

CONSTRUCTION:
The new three-phase overhead distribution gang operated air break (GOAB) switches shall have
the following features:
ENERGIZED PARTS:
The stationary jaw contacts shall be small area (point) silver-coated copper rivets press fitted,
staked, and solder sealed into the bus bar copper finger contacts. The silver-to-silver jaw
contacts shall be high pressure, and self-cleaning when operated.
The switch hinges shall be of the swivel type and shall incorporate four silver washers, two
on each side of the movable terminal for current transfer as well good mechanical bearing
characteristics.
Coil spring shall be stainless steel and the backup spring shall be phosphorus.
Current carrying parts (switch closed) shall be three-eighths inches thick, two inches wide,
round edges, bus bar copper.
Terminal pads shall conform to ANSI dimensions. That are to be two 9/16: holes spaced
1.75” apart. These terminal pads shall be hot tin dipped.
Adjustment points shall be provided to facilitate easy replacement of parts, and readjustment
of the switch.
Auxiliary contacts shall be provided to act as fault close or load pickup points to protect the
main contacts.
INSULATORS:
Switch insulators shall be porcelain or a cycloaliphatic type.
THREE-PHASE SWITCH UNIT CROSS-ARM:
The three-phase switch base shall be approximately 3” x 5” x 8’ with a galvanized steel or a
4” x 6” x 8’ fiberglass arm and shall incorporate an integral operating mechanism. Extended
length GOAB’s (12 ft) are also included for use on steel transmission poles. The base is
completely enclosed with fiberglass or galvanized steel ends and “O” rings at all journal
bearings, so the three-phase operating mechanism of the switch is completely protected from
exposure to the weather on internal operating mechanism units.
The switch shall have the capability of being mounted either in line with the conductor
phases or installed beneath another cross arm. It shall be unitized and factory adjusted
requiring no field assembly or adjustment; however, the unit shall be field adjustable.
The three-phase switch unit shall have provisions for dead-ending on the center phase of the
switch at a maximum rating of 10,000lbs per conductor (balanced).
A drill and tapped ½”- 13 hole shall be provided for the switch base for grounding.
The pole-mounted bracket is a vertical 6” hot dip galvanized steel channel with an 11/16”
diameter holes for mounting directly to a distribution pole.
The connection point for the operator shall be located no more than 3” from the centerline of
the pole in order to incorporate a “pole hugger” design.
The switch shall have easily removable single point lift bracket for easy installation.
The switch shall be field retrofit-able so a motor operator can be bonded directly to the
switch base to form a unitized motor operated switch.
OPERATING SHAFT:
The operating shaft shall consist of up to a minimum of four 2” diameter, 7ft long pipe
sections, universal joint section, adjustable pipe guides, an insulator assembly, coupling
assembly, adjustable lock segment assembly, adjustable handle assembly with ground strap
attached, and all necessary attachment and cotter pins.
The handle/lock segment assembly shall have provisions for the pad locking in both the open
and closed positions.
Should additional lengths of operating shaft or rod guide brackets be needed for special
applications, they will be quoted independently as a separate adder at the time of order.
INTERRUPTER:
The interrupter shall be of the expulsion type and shall operate at a speed independent of the
switch handle. The interrupter body shall be designed to limit exposure to air and shall
incorporate arc-quenching material internally. Bolt on Saf-T-Gap interrupters and OmniRupters are suitable.
A physical means to reset the interrupter shall also be provided to insulate the interrupter
from load or fault pickup.
OTHER OPERATING CHARACTERISTICS CROSS-ARM GOAB:
The internal mechanism of the switch base shall utilize two inter-phase rods that act together
in a “balance force” concept as the switch unit is operated to simultaneously operate all three
phases on the steel arm. The switch shall require torsional operation and shall be of the
horizontal side break type.
Lighting arrester brackets on both sides of the switch, for mounting six lighting
arresters shall be provided.
