Switching Operation

Responder allows you to include a switching device in an incident. For example, an outage may occur on a fuse and leave a neighborhood without power. You can manipulate a switch (circled in red) to provide the neighborhood with power while the fuse is being repaired.

The following example shows a fuse outage.

In the following example, an incident is created on the switch and its Actual Status field is set to Closed to provide power to the loadpoints. Responder allows the user to indicate that the switch is closed on specific phases only. The switch provides power until the fuse is repaired.

Once the fuse is repaired and the user restores the devices in Responder, the switch's Actual Status reverts back to its Expected Status. The incident symbology remains on the two devices (fuse and switch) until the incident is closed.
