A section of a document entitled 'Courants forts' (which I understand to be power and lighting installations) reads as follows: 'Le poste de livraison principal HT/BT est situé au niveau de l'entrepont, il est composé de ... 3 cellules de protection transformateur par inter et disjoncteur'.

transformer protection cubicle using switch and circuit-breaker
Explanation:
Only medium C/L because 'inter'.' is ambiguous: it could be just an 'interrupteur' = 'switch'; BUT there are other possibilities, such as a switch-fuse; if you have a diagram, you may be able to tell from the symbol used, or other cluse in your text.

Wpuld probably be enater to re-arrange the word order so as to get rid of 'using' by making the terms qualifiers.

  -> Thanks, Herbie Troucle is, 'siolator' is often 'sectionneur', and I've see 'inter + sectionneur', which would leave us in a bit of a pickle here ;-)

agree  B D Finch: As you suggested: switch and circuit-breaker transformer protection cubicle?

  -> Thanks, B! Yes, I think that would be more succinct.
