The Square D MD50 motor disconnect switch provides reliable, safe and quick power connections in industrial facilities, and prevents process interruption by cutting power to a motor if necessary while not affecting the main circuit. It makes it virtually impossible to plug in a power receptacle having different voltage and ampere ratings, while a mechanical interlock forces an operator to insert a plug before power can be turned on and to turn power off before the plug can be removed.
Its IEC-compliant platform provides a quick and easy method for companies to standardize their electrical component specifications worldwide, because it is compatible with any manufacturer‚â€™s product conforming to the IEC 60309 standard and color coding.
It comes in 20, 30, 60, and 100 A units that are compatible with IEC 60309-2 plug configurations, and features a NEMA 4X enclosure, with a poured-in seamless gasket with brass rivets and stainless steel fixing screws for corrosive or washdown environments.
