The terms and definitions in this standard cover all high-voltage enclosed and non-enclosed, indoor and outdoor air switches rated in excess of 1000 V used primarily in connection with generation, transmission, distribution, and conversion of electric power. This includes such switch types as disconnect, horn-gap, fault initiation, and ground for manual or power operation. The following switch types are not covered by this standard: distribution cutouts fitted with disconnecting blades, and switches used in metal-enclosed and pad-mounted switchgear. This standard also does not apply to load-break separable insulated connectors, circuit-breakers, circuit-switchers, or reclosers.
