Benefits of DECONTACTOR™ Technology
Providing Benefits throughout Your Facility
MELTRIC DS and DSN Series Switch-Rated plugs and receptacles combine the safety of a switch with the convenience of a plug and receptacle in one reliable, cost-effective device. They provide user safety, arc flash protection, code compliance, and operating cost benefits that are not possible with other devices.
- UL/CSA Switch Ratings ensure the safe disconnection of the load
- Dead-front construction with safety shutter eliminates potential hazards due to live parts and arcing
- Separation of the plug and receptacle provides clear visual verification of deenergization
- Integral provisions make LOTO simple.
The operation of DS and DSN devices presents no potential electrical hazard, so it is a NFPA 70E “Normal Operation” and no PPE or other special safety precautions are required. The need to suit up and do voltage testing as is required to verify deenergization on most other disconnects is eliminated, saving time and money.
