Leviton unveils stainless steel enclosed disconnect switches
Leviton launched its Powerswitch non-fused disconnects in stainless steel enclosures intended for use in food and beverage processing environments where sanitary conditions are critical, as well as wastewater treatment, chemical processing, and other harsh industrial applications. This new line of enclosures is certified by NSF International, as they have mounting feet that provide a ¾” standoff from the wall, making each enclosure easy to clean. The enclosures have also passed IP69K testing and are proven to endure rigorous high pressure, high temperature washdown.
Leviton’s new family of Powerswitch stainless steel disconnects includes 30/32A, 60A, 80A and 100A configurations. Each disconnect enclosure features a watertight, high visibility red and yellow over-mold handle built for strength and durability, with three provisions for padlocks to ensure OSHA compliant lockout and tagout capabilities.
The disconnect enclosures are constructed of Type 304 non-magnetic stainless steel, have debossed ON/OFF markings on the cover for clear identification and feature a side-hinged removable cover door for easy access to the switch for installation and servicing. Type 316 stainless steel enclosure options are available upon request. The enclosures are watertight and dust-tight rated to IP66, IP67, IP68 and IP69K and UL50E Type 3R, 4X, 12 and 13.Leviton Powerswitch non-fused disconnect switches in stainless steel enclosures will be available in May 2017.
