Since all the 3 phases are broken together(in a gang) using a single mechanism , the name gang operated switch is given. These are used in 11/22/33 KV transmission /distribution systems. Contacts are made of copper or brass and are male-female type. A thin grease film is used to protect the contacts.The moving contacts are of tilting type, which insert into fixed contacts.
