"Line of Sight" Disconnect Switches
Sections 430.102 – 430.109 of the National Electric Code require approved disconnecting means to be located in a readily accessible location within sight of the motor and driven equipment. With their UL & CSA ratings for “Motor Circuit Disconnect Switching” and “Branch Circuit Disconnect Switching”, Decontactor devices are an approved ‘line of sight’ disconnect switch for meeting this requirement.
Decontactor plugs and receptacles are available with numerous handles, mounting angles, wall boxes, and other accessories. They may be used as in-line connectors or may be mounted on walls, panels, equipment, or even directly on the motor. This flexibility makes it simple to locate disconnects where they are easily visible and convenient to use.
