EC: OEM Line Isolation Switch

Power — Energy, power protection: Eaton's OEM Line Isolation switch provides an external disconnecting means for industrial control panels, allowing an operator to access the control panel without exposure to the line side voltage. This is a Control Engineering 2017 Engineers’ Choice Awards Finalist.

Eaton's OEM Line Isolation (OLI) switch provides an external disconnecting means for industrial control panels, allowing an operator to access the control panel without exposure to the line side voltage. This enhances safety and allows for reduced PPE, improving worker dexterity and mobility.

Traditional control panels may expose operators to line side system voltage (i.e., 480 Vac) even when the internal main disconnect is in the “off” position. Many panel-building OEMs and OEM customers are concerned with arc flash hazards and arc flash categories and may be looking for ways to reduce them.

The solution is the OEM Line Isolation (OLI) switch—the newest product in Eaton's expanding offering of safer switching devices. The OLI switch provides an external disconnecting means for industrial control panels. It allows an operator to access the control panel without exposure to the line side voltage, thus enhancing safety and allowing for reduced PPE, which improves worker dexterity and mobility.

The OLI switch is designed to universally integrate to major manufacturers' "disconnect enclosures" that will work with the Eaton C371-style handle and operating mechanism. The Eaton solution is a complete package, including enclosure, disconnect, handle, flex-cable operator and all other necessary components.
