Courtesy: ABBABB's heavy-duty safety switches are designed for commercial and industrial applications meet UL98, CSA and NEMA KS-1 standards for the most demanding service-entrance and motor-load applications. The 600 V and 200 kA rated switches use the same globally rated bodies as ABB's market leading rotary-style switches, providing increased performance, reliability and safety to the heavy duty market segment.

The heavy-duty switches 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.

The ABB heavy-duty safety switches are available as fused and non-fused, with Types 1/12/3R/4X steel or stainless steel enclosures. The safety switches are maintenance-free and are fully field-serviceable, making them useful for heavy commercial and industrial applications. 

Additional features of the new line include dual color handles, auxiliary contacts, and fuse adapter kits that are field adjustable to accommodate class R, L, J or T fuses.
