General Duty Disconnect
General Duty Switches are intended for applications where reliable performance and continuity of service are needed, but where duty requirements are not severe and usual service conditions prevail. These switches are intended for use primarily with supply circuits rated 240V AC or less where the available fault current is less than 100,000A when used with Class R or T fuses or 10,000A max. when used with Class H fuses.
Heavy Duty Safety Switches
Heavy duty switches are available in 30-1200A ratings and in Type 1, 3R, 12 and 4X enclosures. Both fusible and non-fusible versions are offered. They can be used on circuits that are rated through 200K when protected by or used with Class R or J fuses. They feature quick make and break operation and visible blade construction. They offer a wide range of accessories including 200% neutrals and isolated ground kits which are not available with competitive products.
Positive Switching Action: Quick make, quick break visible blade switching action.
Rugged Durability: All copper current carrying parts except for lugs are constructed from copper. All general duty switches are both load break and HP rated. All are UL98 listed.
Flexibility: Switches are available in 2, 3, 4 and 6 pole versions and in both fusible and non-fusible designs. Type 1, 3R, 12 and 4X enclosures are offered. They can be used for both branch and for service entrance applications. Fusible switches take Class H fuses as standard but are easily field convertible to Class R or J fuses and Heavy Duty switch can also convert to Class T fusing in 100-1200A ratings.
Ease of Installation: Increased wire bending space and tangential knock-outs in 60-600A ratings speed installation. The unique enclosure design provides a formed out front flange that is easy on the installer’s hands and on conductor insulation.
Padlockable: All general duty switches are padlockable in the OFF position. The door can also be padlocked in the closed position.
