To help utility workers do their jobs as productively and safely as possible, FirstPower has developed a tool and fluid combination that has revolutionized disconnect switch operation.
Proven in field operations, the Stinger® System is engineered to improve electric utility disconnect switching productivity. Switching productivity, also known as "same day switching," is achieved when a switch can be opened without breaking as a reasonable force is applied. The Stinger® is not only safe, but highly effective for opening switches without down time.
An electric utility conducted independent ergonomic testing of the Stinger® System. Results of the testing showed that pre-treating a switch using the Stinger® and 1FR™ Penetrating Fluid will:
- Reduce the amount of force required to open a switch significantly, sometimes by 50%
- Reduce peak muscle exertion of workers by over 50%
What is the Stinger® System, and How Does it Work?
The Stinger® System greatly improves switch productivity and worker safety, but how exactly? The Stinger® System includes the Stinger® tool with wireless remote operation, 1FR™ Penetrating Fluid and camera for close-up viewing when treating the switch.
