Switchtec’s redesigned NT enclosed switch disconnectors offer improved performance at a more competitive price.
Now in larger enclosures, it is much easier – hence quicker and cheaper - for installers and maintenance staff to handle and bend powerful, stiff cables to terminate them at the unit’s connection terminals. And as a result of Switchtec’s experience and knowledge of the marketplace, its vast supplier network and buying power, it is able to source the improved enclosures at a more competitive price that it is passing on to its customers, hence a better product at a cheaper price.
Aimed at electrical contractors, panel builders, equipment manufacturers, machine builders and generator set manufacturers, the switch disconnectors provide a solution where general switching duties are required. They are suitable for control switches for multiple circuits and for use in main circuits as load switches for motors, machines, heating equipment, lighting, ventilation, air-conditioning, generator sets and mains/generator change over duties.
Three types of enclosed switch are available, on/off load break, on/off switch fused and on/off/on change over switches. Fitted with high quality Telergon switches, the packaged enclosures are available in ratings from 32A to 1250Amps ex-stock, with other sizes available to order.
All of the NT enclosed switch disconnectors are supplied in an IP65, RAL 7035, pale grey painted, mild steel enclosure and for versatility, they have removable top and bottom gland plates. The enclosures offer an IP20 level of internal protection, and are available either with touch proof terminals or supplied complete with terminal shrouds for both incoming and outgoing connections. They have a defeatable, door interlocked, padlockable facility deployable in the operating handle ‘off’ position and are supplied with a door earth lead.
All products conform to IEC60947-1 & 3, are certified by Kema Keur, Bureau Veritas, and are CE approved. Switchtec’s knowledgeable field sales engineers are available to provide application advice and product choice assistance as are the company’s in-house sales and design team.
