Switch Rated / Decontactor

Decontactors are a combination plug, receptacle and disconnect switch in the same device.  The Decontactors integral switch technology ensures the safe breaking of resistive and inductive loads (up to 60 hp or 200A) before the plug can be removed from the receptacle.

Decontactors are UL and CSA approved for both “branch circuit” and “motor circuit” disconnect switching, so they are ideal for connecting motors, welding machines and virtually any other electrical equipment.
