Safety Disconnect Switches



What Is A Safety Disconnect?

The ON/OFF capabilities of a safety disconnect switch assures users that an electric circuit is completely de-energized from a power source before performing any maintenance or servicing. According to NEC Article 430.102B, a safety switch must be located in sight of all motors and manufacturing equipment.
