The ABB Low Voltage Products division has introduced a new line of heavy duty safety switches for commercial and industrial applications, meeting the necessary UL98, CSA and NEMA KS-1 standards for the most demanding service-entrance and motor-load applications. The 600V and 200kA rated switches use the same globally rated bodies as ABB’s rotary-style switches, providing increased performance, reliability and safety to the heavy duty market segment. They offer touch-safe visible blades and operating mechanisms that are fully enclosed and protected from dirt and debris. All enclosure types come with gaskets, are free of sharp edges and offer a spacious interior for easier and safer wiring and installation of optional accessories. These safety switches range from 30 to 1,200 Amperes, and are suitable for heavy commercial and industrial applications including heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), food and beverage processing, material handling and conveyors, water and wastewater treatment, commercial construction, marine, petrochemical processing and mining.
