ABB heavy duty safety switches winners in Control Engineering Engineers' Choice Awards 2014

ABB heavy duty safety switches won Control Engineering Engineers' Choice Awards 2014 in the category Power - Energy, power protection.

The Control Engineering Engineers' Choice Awards highlight some of the best new control, instrumentation and automation products as chosen by Control Engineering's print and online subscribers. Survey respondents are asked to select products based on technological advancement, service to the industry, and market impact.

ABB's next generation heavy duty safety switches use the same globally rated bodies as ABB's market leading rotary-style switches, providing increased performance, reliability and safety in a larger, more robust switch. ABB's heavy duty safety switches also are the first in the industry to offer larger and more durable enclosures and handles, providing a spacious interior for easier wiring and optional accessories.


The switches range from 30 to 1200 Amps, are available as fused and non-fused.

The new ABB heavy duty safety switches are also easy to maintain in the field. Plastic viewing windows protect double-breaking switch blades that do not require field lubrication. The switch body, fuse-holders, handle and enclosure door also are easily and quickly replaceable.

Additional features of the new line include:  

Standard gaskets: included on all NEMA Types; combined with rounded edges, this means no sharp edges for a safer installation.
Dual color handles: highly visible red marking clearly indicates when switch is ON.
Auxiliary contacts: mountable inside switch mechanism; same as those used with ABB rotary style switches, for reduced inventory.
Optional viewing window: factory installed in enclosure door to safely see status of switch inside without opening door.
Fuse adapter kits: field adjustable to accommodate class R, L, J or T fuses.  

The ABB safety switch is suitable for heavy duty commercial and industrial applications, such as heating, air conditioning and ventilation, as well as food and beverage processing, water and wastewater treatment, commercial construction, material handling, marine, petrochemical processing, and mining.
