Franklin, Wis. — MELTRIC’s Switch-Rated DS200 plug and receptacle has been upgraded to include horsepower (hp) ratings from 40-100, depending upon voltage.

This CSA-listed product also boasts a rating increase to 600VAC and a new 6-pilot configuration*. The upgrades make the DS200 480 and 600VAC 100 hp configurations the most powerful switch-rated device in the industry.

The DS200 with hp and motor circuit switch ratings is a CEC-compliant motor disconnect. The new ratings expand MELTRIC’s product offerings up to 100 hp, where the CEC requires a specific hp-rated disconnect.
