Switch-Rated Safety

Application Specific Solutions

MELTRIC Durability & Reliability

Extension Cord Safety

Unlike MELTRIC Switch-Rated plugs and receptacles, most standard pin & sleeve devices are not intended to be connected or disconnected under load.  Because of that, they must be used in connection with a wall mounted interlock switch to prevent connection or disconnection under load. 

The interlock switch, however, can only affect the connection made at the wall box; it cannot control what happens at the end of the cord, so users connecting or disconnecting pin & sleeve extension cords under load may be exposed to arcing and the potential injury hazards it poses.

MELTRIC Switch-Rated plugs & receptacles are designed and rated for disconnect switching and eliminate the possibility of drawing an arc.  Power distribution gear and extension cords equipped with them eliminate the hazards of standard extension cords.
