Mini-Vario and Vario Assembled and Enclosed Switches

Refer to Catalog 9421CT0301

Identification System

Mini-Vario and Vario rotary manual motor-control switches from 12–175 A are suitable for on-load making and breaking of resistive or mixed resistive inductive circuits where frequent operation is required. They can also be used for direct switching of motors in utilization categories AC-3 and DC-3 specific to motors. Vario manual motor-control switches are suitable for isolator applications with fully visible indication (since the handle cannot be in the open position unless all the contacts are actually open and separated by the appropriate isolating distance), and the handles are padlockable.

Vario Metallic Enclosed Switches

Vario switches meet UL508 requirements as both enclosed and open manual motor controllers. They are also marked “Suitable as Motor Disconnect” allowing installation on the load side of the motor branch circuit short-circuit and ground-fault protection. If motor branch circuit short-circuit and ground-fault protection is needed, use a GS1 or 9422 fusible switch or circuit breaker meeting NEC 430.52 requirements.

The V1 and V2 come in metallic enclosures (NEMA Type 1, 4, 4X, and 12). The NEMA 1 enclosure comes with conduit knockouts top and bottom. To factory install a VZ7 auxiliary contact in these metallic enclosures, add Form X11 to the end of the catalog number (for example, 9421V1G30X11). To factory install a VZ20 auxiliary contact in these enclosures, add Form X20 to the end of the catalog number (for example, 9421V1W30X20).

Footnotes

  1. Switches/contacts are dual rated (UL/IEC).
  2. Auxiliary contacts are dual rated (UL/IEC 10/12 A).
  3. Complete switch includes handle operator, shaft, door interlock plate, and line terminal shroud.
  4. Assembled, includes switches mounted in enclosure with handle.
  5. Refer to Vario Manual Motor Control Switches, IEC and Vario Manual Motor Control Switches for horsepower ratings.
  6. For indoor use only. The NEMA Type 4/4X enclosure is made of #304 stainless steel with 3/4 in. T&B stainless steel hubs on the top and bottom.
  7. When using these handles for replacements on the non-metallic enclosed switches, the handle shaft that comes with the enclosure must be reused. See Section 15 of the Supplemental Digest.
  8. The door interlock plate included with VCC Kits has the same drilling as the handle operators.
