Decontactor™ Series Switch-Rated Plugs & Receptacles
MELTRIC Switch-Rated plugs and receptacles are ideal for connecting power to hoist systems. They ensure safety and enable plug and play hoist change-outs. An electrically safe work condition is ensured even when disconnecting power under load. In addition, Switch-Rated devices greatly simplify NFPA 70E compliance.
The Advantages of Switch-Ratings
√ Switch ratings ensure safe load breaking/making –
even in overload situations.
They are switch rated up to 200A & 60 hp. They provide short circuit make & withstand protection up to 100kA.
√ 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%.
√ Separation of the plug & receptacle provides
verification of deenergization.
Voltage testing is not required. Visible contact separation proves the power is off.
√ Dead front safety design prevents exposure
to live parts and arc flash hazards.
The need for arc flash protection boundaries and cumbersome PPE is eliminated. They maintain a NFPA 70E 'hazard risk category' equal to zero.
√ 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.)
√ NEC, UL & CSA Compliance
In addition to their electrical plug & receptacle listings, MELTRIC Switch-Rated plugs & receptacles are UL/CSA listed for 'Branch Circuit Disconnect Switching' and 'Motor Circuit Disconnect Switching' per UL Subject 2682
