Manipulating rod is aimed for more convenient connection of test cable clamps of various instruments to the bushings of high-voltage equipment from 35 kV to 220 kV up to a height of 5 meters, without the use of ladders or elevated work platform.

The manipulating rod is designed in 3 sizes at the user choice and depending on the equipment applicable:

Full lengh of the road, m Weight of the instrument as the assembled set, 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 product is a universal additional accessory that is recommended to be added to the complete set of all SKB EP instruments: PKV, MIKO and PKR groups.

Together with circuit breaker analyzers PKV/U3.1, PKV/U3.0 and PKV/M7 we recommend to purchase Manipulating rod that is aimed for convenient pole cabels connection to the circuit breaker from the ground or a tank cover for getting time, travel, and speed characteristics without the use of ladders or elevated platforms.

You may need 6 pcs. of extension cables SKB010.41.08.000 (2 pcs. are included to the standard complete set of the manipulating rod).

The manipulating rod is recommended to be used together with MIKO-1 and MIKO-21 micro-ohmmeters, as well as with MIKO-2.3 multipurpose low / high resistance meter for test cables connection from the ground or from the tank cover to the bushings of high-voltage circuit breakers, and to the structural elements of high-voltage short-circuiting switches and earthing devices for contact resistance measurement, without the use of ladders or elevated platforms.

You may need the set of 2 or 6 pcs. of extension cables SKB010.41.08.000 (2 pcs. are included to the standard complete set of the manipulating rod).

If specialists use or plan to use milli-ohmmeters MIKO-7M(A), MIKO-8M(A) or MIKO-9A, manipulating rod shall be an essential accessory for connecting instrument test cables from the tank cover of power transformers up to 220 kV to high-voltage winding elements without the use of ladders or elevated platforms for active electric resistance measuring and for demagnetizing.

You may need the set of 4 or 6 pcs. of extension cables SKB010.41.08.000 (2 pcs. are included to the standard complete set of the manipulating rod).

When working with power transformer OLTC analyzers PKR-2 and PKR-2M specialists may use manipulating rod for connecting test cables from the tank cover of power transformer up to 220 kV without the use of ladders or elevated platforms for receiving oscillograms and radial diagrams of contactor operation.

You may need the set of 2 or 4 pcs. of extension cables SKB010.41.08.000 (2 pcs. are included to the standard complete set of the manipulating rod).

To work with the manipulating rod is allowed only electrical personnel that is certified not lower than the III group of electrical safety and having not lower than secondary education in the field of electrical engineering.

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

Manipulating rod is recommended to be stored and operated within the temperature range from -15°C to + 40°C with the relative humidity up to 95%, in the absence of impurities in the air, causing corrosion.

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

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 manipulating rod.

Transportation of the manipulating rod is highly convenient: it is supplied in a special cover, and with a bag for the rest of the elements.

Manipulating rod does not require calibration or verification. 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 can be repaired on site (depending on the damage).
