Setting the standard for performance, quality, and reliability in today's commercial and industrial applications. First introduced in 1907, Square D by Schneider Electric safety switches have a long history of leadership in safety and performance. Since then, Schneider Electric has pioneered many innovations to help maximize the lifetime value of your safety switches. Safety switches play a crucial role in today’s commercial and industrial settings. They isolate power in daily activities and provide an effective way to interrupt power in an emergency. Two primary applications for safety switch are as a lockout on sight disconnect and as a circuit isolation device. The useful life of a safety switch is less than two years based on NEMA KS-1 life test requirements, in lockout/tag out applications where a switch is operated just once per hour, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Square D safety switches provide significantly higher levels of mechanical endurance than NEMA KS-1 require. This translates to improved reliability in a production environment. In fact, the standard for the design life of Square D F-Series safety switches is a minimum of three times the NEMA requirement. A key performance benefit of the Square D safety switch is its ability to break load. A locked motor can draw six to eight times motor full-load current. In an emergency, it is important to have a switch with enhanced load break capability. A key element of Square D safety switches in their blade and jaw construction designs built to easily manage heavy motor loads and arc interruptions. Advanced maintenance features extend switch life and reduce downtime, saving labor and material costs. The Square D safety switch modular design allows the replacement of all interior worn or damaged components. Field-replaceable components such as interior line bases, load bases, and mechanisms are available. Moreover, handles and lock plates are also replaceable if they are damaged or vandalized. The Square D F-Series insulated switch handle is an industry exclusive. It is made for a high-strength polymer chosen for weather resistance, durability, and impact strength. The two-color, position-indicating handle on heavy duty safety switches enhances operator safety by aiding in visual recognition of switch position from an angle or at a distance. Square D safety switches are, above else, built to increase safety. Our switch blades are easily visible, even in poor lighting conditions. In addition, the design of the Square D safety switch includes an oversized arc suppressor, a key feature in the ability of the switch to break the load by effectively attenuating the arc for clean interruption. Galvannealed steel in all single-throw Type 3R and 12 enclosures provides superior corrosion protection. Type 4X seam-welded enclosures help extend equipment life by providing excellent environmental and corrosion protection without the use of a silicone sealer. Managing temperatures inside the switch is essential to providing greater service life. Square D safety switches feature more copper than other switches available on the market today, which is one of the reasons there is lower operating temperatures. The enclosed operating mechanism design also reduces the amount of dust and other contaminates that shorten operating life. The Square D by Schneider Electric 60 Amps 240 Volts 2 Pole General Duty Outdoor Safety Switch is designed for residential and commercial applications where durability and economy are prime considerations. Typical loads are lighting, air conditioning and appliances. This switch is suitable for use as service entrance equipment when equipped with a service grounding kit. The switch is UL listed, File E2875 and meet or exceed the NEMA Standard KS1. For more than 100 years the Square D brand safety switch has been the unchallenged leader in the market. We've continued our tradition of innovation, developing new features that provide an unsurpassed level of performance, reliability, safety and ease of installation. This tradition has resulted in the Square D brand being preferred two to one over our closest competitor.
