 Using Meltric DS20 Decontactor plugs and receptacles to connect motors instead of hard-wiring can help to reduce equipment change-out downtime by as much as 50%. When replacement motors are pre-wired with Decontactor inlets or plugs, a mechanic can safely perform the electrical connections simply by unplugging the old motor and plugging in the new one.
  • No waiting for an electrician to perform field wiring
  • No “suiting-up” or extraordinary electrical precautions
  • No need to field test (jog the motor) to ensure proper rotation

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.
