Quik-Spec™ Heavy Duty Industrial Safety Switch

Nov. 1, 2007
Improving workplace safety was the top priority in developing the new Cooper Bussmann® Quik-Spec™ Safety Switch. The heavy-duty switch maximizes user protection with its IP-20 finger-safe CUBEFuse® integration, considered the safest fuse installation on the market. The current-limiting Class J performance of the CUBEFuse also makes the new Safety Switch superior to traditional models in reducing dangerous arc-flash hazards, both in energy and incident levels. The flange operated handle is easy to operate with electrical gloves, and is lockable with up to three padlocks to protect maintenance workers. The new switch is easy to specify since it meets NEC® 110.9 requirements, and is listed to UL98 for enclosed deadfront switches and UL50 for enclosures for electrical equipment. As an added benefit, the Safety Switch offers an optional easyID™ fuse-viewing window which provides clear, immediate visual feedback on switch contact status, and allows users to view fuse indication without having to open the switch door.
