CDS Motor Disconnect With Control Switch For Safety and Space Savings

MENNEKES CDS curved-top disconnect switches offer an option to add a three-position selector switch or other control and push-button devices. Save valuable space and cost by reducing parts while enhancing safety for maintenance staff. Stocked in TEST-OFF-RUN, this model incorporates the 30A CDS enclosure and control switch, eliminating the cost and labor associated with installing a second box. In addition, the TEST function improves worker safety by enabling maintenance personnel to “prove” proper equipment functions after LO/TO procedures.

Selector switches are just one design feature in our 30A NSF-certified CDS motor disconnect, which is the industry's first non-metallic clean profile switch to shed water. Other features include:

  • 30A 20hp 480V rating with 65kA SCCR rating (when protected with Class J fuses).
  • Labelless, with easy-to-read laser etched markings for permanent rating identification.
  • Impact-modified VALOX® enclosure for chemical resistance in food processing applications.
  • Poured-in-place gasket, which provides long-lasting NEMA 4X and IP69K seal.
  • Standard early-break auxiliary contacts for VFD interface.
  • Two mounting options: external mounting feet to industry-standard footprint or an internal mounting option that maintains the footprint of MENNEKES legacy enclosures.
  • Captive stainless fixing screws and threaded brass inserts, creating a secure cover seal.
  • Highly visible red handle for clear ON/OFF status and OSHA LO/TO compliance.
