Overriding the 9422 Door Interlock

DANGER
HAZARD OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, EXPLOSION, OR ARC FLASH
Overriding the door interlock must only be done by qualified electrical personnel.
Failure to follow these instructions will result in death or serious injury.

An interlock between the door and the circuit breaker position allows you to open the door only when the circuit breaker is open and the flange-mounted handle is in the O (OFF) position.

When the flange-mounted handle is in the I (ON) position, the door interlock prevents you from opening the door. To open the door, you must turn the handle to the O (OFF) position.

Under exceptional circumstances, qualified electrical personnel can override the interlock.
