Open Point

OpenPoint contains information about a variety of insulated and shielded devices that connect high-voltage cables to apparatus including transformers. Separable, load-break insulated connectors are used with primary bushings of submersible distribution transformers for safety. This is known as a dead-front configuration.

The OpenPoint class inherits attributes from the ElectricDevice abstract class. All model names assigned to the ElectricDevice class should be assigned to the OpenPoint class as well.

Associations: None

Subtypes: Load Break Elbow, Non-Load Break Elbow, Open Point, Solid Connection, Splice, Terminator. The use of subtypes is optional. The Subtype attribute can be removed if subtypes aren't used in the model.
