In this video, Randy Turner, Automation Product Manager, tells us about Allen-Bradley’s disconnect switch offering. Available in both fixed- and variable-depth styles with flange- or door-mounting styles, switches are NEMA, IEC, and UL rated. We offer a variety of fused and non-fused versions from 20…1250 A in both open and enclosed configurations.

Providing the extra level of visual ON or OFF indication of a knife-blade disconnect design, our Bulletin 1494U Universal Disconnect Switches have UL, CSA, and CE ratings in one product line. You can choose from a number of styles and options to meet your specific needs, including non-fusible or fusible versions in 30...100 A sizes. These universal disconnect switches are unique in that they can be connected for rod or cable operation in the field. With the cable option, you also have the flexibility to mount the switch anywhere in the panel, regardless of where the handle is located.
