HP-rated DS200 most powerful switch-rated device

March 12, 2019   Don Horne

MELTRIC’s Switch-Rated DS200 plug and receptacle has been upgraded to include horsepower (hp) ratings from 40-100, depending upon voltage.

The enhanced product also boasts a rating increase to 600VAC and a new six-pilot configuration. The upgrades make the DS200 480 and 600VAC  100 hp configurations the most powerful switch-rated device in the industry.

The DS200 with hp and motor circuit switch ratings is now an NEC-compliant motor disconnect. The new ratings fill the gap between 75-100 hp where the NEC requires a specific hp-rated disconnect.

DS200 Switch-Rated plugs and receptacles feature MELTRIC’s spring-loaded, silver-nickel, butt-style contacts. The devices are built to withstand corrosive environments, while delivering exceptional performance and reliability. Receptacles include standard lockout holes for easy NFPA 70E lockout/ tag out compliance.

A full line of accessories is available for DS200 Switch-Rated plugs and receptacles, and shipment of the upgraded DS200 will begin on March 18.
