Decontactor™ Series Switch Rated Plugs & Receptacles
Meltric's DECONTACTOR™ Series switch rated plugs & receptacles are a combination plug, receptacle and UL/CSA approved disconnect switch in the same device. Decontactors are commonly used to connect power to conveyor systems, thus enabling them to be reconfigured quickly and safely. Decontactors are ideal for connecting conveyor motors, they enable plug and play motor change-outs and thus help minimize system downtime. With Decontactors installed NFPA 70E and CSA Z462 compliance is greatly simplified because the Decontactor's safety features ensure an electrically safe work condition.

√ Switch ratings ensure safe load breaking/making –
even in overload situations.
Decontactors are switch rated up to 200A & 60 hp. They provide short circuit make & withstand protection up to 100kA.
√ Dead front construction prevents exposure
to live parts and arc flash hazards.
The need for arc flash protection boundaries and cumbersome PPE is eliminated. Decontactors maintain a NFPA 70E 'hazard risk category' equal to zero.
√ Separation of the plug & receptacle provides
verification of deenergization.
Voltage testing is not required. Visible contact separation proves the power is off.
√ Plug & play simplicity allows any qualified employee to quickly connect and disconnect electrical equipment.
Specially trained electrical workers are not required for load making/breaking. Downtime related to equipment change-outs can be reduced by up to 50%.
√ Lockout provisions facilitate easy compliance with
Only your lock and tag are needed, no additional mechanisms are required. (Provisions are standard on the plug and optional on the receptacle.)
