Heavy-duty double-throw safety switchEaton expanded its heavy-duty double-throw safety switches to support 1200 A. Used to transfer service from a normal power source to an alternate source or to switch from one load circuit to another, this 1200 A DT switch is designed for fusible or nonfusible two-source switch configurations up to 1200 A for both commercial and industrial applications. The device features two vertically oriented switches in one enclosure with three-position operation, preventing the two switches from being closed at the same time. Safety features include receptacle compartment safety interlocks, utility isolation without key interlocks, material selection, and a trap door system.
