brace click to hear : brace

Slanted part that connects the pole to the crossarm to hold it in place horizontally.

fuse click to hear : fuse

Protection device for the electric circuit; it falls from the fuse holder to cut the current in the event of a surge.

fuse cutout click to hear : fuse cutout

Unit that consists of a fuse and a fuse holder.

terminal click to hear : terminal

Part on which low-tension distribution line conductors are joined to the transformers.

transformer click to hear : transformer

Device that alters electric voltage; voltage is decreased before being distributed by low-tension lines to areas of consumption.

insulator click to hear : insulator

Piece of nonconducting material that connects the distribution line conductors to the support.

supply point click to hear : supply point

Place where the customer’s service entrance is connected to the low-tension distribution line.

low-tension distribution line click to hear : low-tension distribution line

Overhead line that distributes electricity up to a voltage of 750 V; its conductors are located under the transformer.

bushing click to hear : bushing

Insulator and point where the current enters the medium-tension transformer.

fuse holder click to hear : fuse holder

Electric junction point where the fuse is attached and on which it articulates so the fuse can fall over.

lightning arrester click to hear : lightning arrester

Device that protects the electric facilities from power surges caused by lightning.

crossarm click to hear : crossarm

Horizontal element located at the top of an electricity pole; insulators are attached to it.

medium-tension distribution line click to hear : medium-tension distribution line

Overhead line that distributes electricity at a voltage between 750 and 50,000 V; its conductors are located at the top of electricity poles.

hot line connector click to hear : hot line connector

Linking piece with a bolt, which is tightened to bring together two conductors to establish an electric connection between them.

insulator click to hear : insulator

Piece of nonconducting material that connects the distribution line conductors to the support.
