Switch-Rated Devices Maximize Safety, Reliability, and Cost Efficiency

Make the switch from risky pin and sleeve connectors and restrictive hardwiring. Enable quick, hassle-free changeouts by implementing Switch-Rated plugs and receptacles from MELTRIC.

MELTRIC DSN and DS 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.

DSN and DS devices are engineered with DECONTACTOR® technology. This technology provides spring-loaded, silver-nickel butt contacts, push button disconnection, enclosed arc chambers, and dead-front construction with a safety shutter to ensure user safety, code compliance, and operating cost benefits that are not possible with other devices.
