30A Circuit-Lock Disconnect Switch Redefines Safety Benchmarks
Friday, June 02, 2017
 

Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems has redefined the benchmark for safety with its new 30A motor disconnect switch.  Six LEDs (3 line side/3 load side) have been incorporated into the cover providing users critical information.  Hubbell refers to this phase-indicating technology as inSIGHT™.

 

The integral LEDs provide both safety and convenience benefits.  Electrical status of each phase is now within sight and clearly displayed on the cover.  Users are provided a secondary way to visually confirm make/break on all phases.  Furthermore, the LEDs provide insight about the electrical status of the switch within the enclosure prior to removing the cover.  Personnel can quickly and safely identify abnormal conditions such as a welded contact or dropped phase.  The inSIGHT™ clearly differentiates itself with features you can literally see.

 

The 30A Circuit-Lock Disconnect Switches are available in non-metallic and stainless-steel versions, with or without a jog switch. For retrofit applications, replacement covers are available to use in existing installations.

 

When locked in the “off” position, the high-visibility red rotary handle complies with OSHA lockout/tagout requirements. When in the “on” position, the cover cannot be opened.

 

The disconnect switch’s IP69k rating means that it can withstand high-pressure, high-temperature washdowns. It is also certified for use in food processing applications by NSF, and is UL Listed for Type 4X and 12 enclosures.

 

 “With an ever growing focus on improving safety procedures the inSIGHT™ truly is great way to bring even the best safety procedures to the next level.” says Greg McAleer, senior product manager for Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems. “Providing personell circuit information before the enclosure cover is ever removed is a game changer!”
