Kilo Ampere Switch specializes in the design and
manufacture of high current switches and flexible jumpers. Emphasis is on custom
designed applications. The Kilo Ampere Switch module design has been used for
more than 30 years on fixed installation with currents as high as 500,000 ampere
and on portable switches, both air cooled and water cooled, for currents as
high as 75,000 ampere. Over the years these switch modules have acquired an
enviable reputation of reliable performance. Kilo Ampere Switch is committed
to providing a quality product and has achieved registration to ISO 9001.Kilo
