Insulators for High Potential Transmission.


At a time when the development of power transmission is being carried on so rapidly, it is interesting to note the gradual evolution of the high potential insulator. In this article are illustrated two sizes of the "Victor" type of insulators manufactured by Fred M. Locke, of Victor, N. Y., who has done much to make possible the transmission of electrical energy at extremely high voltages. One cut represents a No. 304 "Victor" insulator, adapted to 40,000 volts, and another is a No. 316 "Victor" insulator for 60,000 volts. The same type includes insulation for any voltage down to 7000 volts. These
