Eaton Cutler Hammer’s DH Series Safety Switch. These heavy duty safety switches or disconnect
switches are rated for loads up to1200 amperes. They are available in non-fusible versions
or fusible with Class L or Class H fuses. Inside are deionizing arc chutes to confine
and suppress the arcs produced by opening contacts under load. The heavy duty switches
have a visible double break quick-make, quick-break rotary blade mechanism. They have a mechanically
interlocked cover to prevent easy access when the switch is in the ON position. The device
has triple padlocking capability for lock outs, Disconnect switches are available up
to 6 poles with enclosure types NEMA 1, NEMA 3R, NEMA 12, NEMA 4 and NEMA 4X. Built-in
fuse pullers come equipped on the NEMA 4X and NEMA 12 enclosures through 200 amperes.
The NEMA 12 designs from 30 to 800 ampere are convertible to NEMA 3R by opening factory
installed drain hole. The 30 to 800 ampere switch models are seismic qualified and exceed
the requirements of the Uniform Building Code and California Code Title 24. For models rated
200 amperes and below, there are tangential knockouts on NEMA 1 and NEMA 3R enclosures.
The disconnects are UL 98 and UL 50 and adhere to the NEMA KS-1 standards. Accessories and
renewal parts can be found on the “docs and links” tab of Galco’s website or in
