General Duty Safety Switches

Product Description

Light duty safety switches are ideal for home applications when disconnecting power to workshops, hobby rooms, furnaces and garages. General duty safety switches are designed for residential and commercial applications where durability and economy are prime considerations. Typical loads include lighting, air conditioning and appliances. They are suitable for use as service equipment when equipped with a factory-installed neutral assembly or field-installed service grounding kit, as applicable. Light duty and general duty safety switches are UL® Listed, File E2875, and meet or exceed the NEMA® Standard KS1.

Light Duty General Duty

Configuration

  • One, fusible, switched pole with insulated neutral

  • Two, fusible, switched poles with insulated neutral

  • Three, fusible, switched poles with insulated neutral

  • Two or three, non-fusible, switched poles without insulated neutral

Construction

Visible Blade Construction
  • Indoor NEMA Type 1 or Outdoor NEMA Type 3R enclosures

  • Visible blades for positive indication that the switch is “OFF”

  • Quick-make, quick-break operating mechanism (general duty only)

  • Lugs suitable for aluminum or copper conductors. See page 8 and 9 for additional lug data

  • Spring reinforced, plated copper fuse clips

Spring Reinforced Fuse Clips Operating Mechanism with Line Base Series F
  • Series F handle/lock-plate is a field-replaceable modular design

  • Series F operating mechanism is an enclosed, field-replaceable, modular design

  • Series F NEMA Type 3R covers have side opening construction

  • Top endwalls in 30–200 A NEMA Type 3R switches have bolt-on hub provisions

  • Multiple padlock provisions in “OFF” position

  • Tangential combination knockouts alleviate the need for offset bends

Enclosures

Enclosures are finished in gray, baked enamel that is electrodeposited on cleaned, phosphatized steel.

  • NEMA Type 1 general purpose, indoor

  • NEMA Type 3R general purpose, outdoor

Accessories

Rainproof Hubs

RB Hub Provisions 30–200 A

Bolt-on hubs for rainproof applications. Switches with RB suffix accept 3/4 in. (19 mm) through 2-1/2 in. (63 mm) bolt-on hubs. Switches with R suffix have blank endwalls.

NEMA Type 3R rainproof enclosures with a catalog number ending in RB, have a bolt-on closing cap factory-installed. Order bolt-on hubs separately. Refer to the information in Table 2 above. Hubs through size 2-1/2 in. (63 mm), can be directly installed on RB devices. Devices requiring 3 in. (76 mm) or larger hubs, must have holes cut in the field. Gaskets are provided on 3 in. (76 mm) and larger hubs. All hubs are UL Listed for indoor and rainproof applications and suitable for use with conduits containing an ANSI standard taper pipe thread.

Class R Fuse Kits

Class R Fuse Kits Series F Switches Only

Electrical Interlock Kits

Electrical interlocks for Series F 100–200 A general duty safety switches and Series F 60 A fusible general duty safety switches are available in kit form for field installation. Each kit contains instructions for proper field mounting. A pivot arm operates from the switch mechanism, breaking the control circuit before the main switch blades break. Switches with electrical interlocks installed are UL Listed.
