Utility supplies: Hastings, a worldwide manufacturer of hot line tools and equipment, recently introduced load pick-up/break switch products in single- and three-phase versions to its diverse catalog. The break switches allow a lineman to install a temporary switch anywhere on their system.

The single- and three-phase versions are built to last, and can be used in any weather condition thanks to the vacuum bottle design featuring high-grade silicone rubber and marine-grade aluminum.

Siemens Connect Software is included with these products, allowing users to wirelessly operate and monitor real-time system information such as line voltage, amperage, and more via a laptop.
