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.
The convenient way to provide a line-of-sight disconnect switch
Article 430.102 of the NEC requires each controller and each motor to have a disconnect located within the line of sight. Articles 430.109 and 430.110 indicate that the disconnect must be an appropriate switch or other device and must be rated in horsepower to handle the associated motor loads.
With their UL/CSA ratings for “Branch Circuit Disconnect Switching” up to 200A and “Motor Circuit Disconnect Switching” up to 100 HP MELTRIC DS and DSN Series devices are an approved NEC disconnect switch. They provide a safe and convenient plug and play disconnect switch everywhere they are used to make connections. The need for ancillary disconnect switches is eliminated.
Flexible mounting accessories allow in-line, wall box-mounted, direct motor mounted, cord-drop, flexible conduit, panel mounted, and other installation configurations. This makes providing the required line-of-sight disconnect simple and eliminates the design and space requirement challenges posed by large wall mounted disconnect switches.
