Non-Metal Switch Suits Industrial Applications

February 26, 2015 By Linda Hardesty

EatonEaton has introduced its new non-metallic motor control disconnect switch that is designed to provide a secondary means of power shut-down for industrial manufacturers and applications in the food and beverage industry.

Constructed with industrial strength thermoplastic materials, the non-metallic motor control disconnect switch is built to withstand corrosive and industrial environments and is IP67 rated while offering 30 or 60 ampere switch options. The switch provides a solution for three-phase power switching applications and has options for standard or variable frequency drive (VFD) auxiliary contacts available for each unit.

The switch also includes a padlock option to comply with OSHA lock-out tag-out 1910.147 requirements, which ensures isolation of energy unless the device is in use or being serviced.
