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

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

The DS200 with hp and motor circuit switch ratings is now an NEC-compliant motor disconnect. The new ratings fill the gap between 75-100 hp where the NEC requires a specific hp-rated disconnect.

DS200 Switch-Rated plugs and receptacles feature MELTRIC’s spring-loaded, silver-nickel, butt-style contacts. The devices are built to withstand corrosive environments, while delivering exceptional performance and reliability. Receptacles include standard lockout holes for easy NFPA 70E lockout/tagout compliance.
