Protective switching devices are designed to trip a circuit breaker when a fault is detected. For power system protection, mechanical and electronic switching devices are key for safe operation.
We will work with you to help ensure your protective switching devices facilitate safe use of equipment in office (commercial) and factory (industrial) applications. We evaluate switching devices for compliance and safety, including but not limited to:
- Protective relays that monitor the current and/or voltage of the power system to detect problems with the power system.
- Pilot devices/emergency stop switches that are an integral part of most automated processes, from simple push buttons, indicating lights to selector switches and foot switches. Streamline your global market access for emergency stop switches with CB, CE and/or UL Mark Certification. UL now offers a path to certification with IEC 60947-5-5.
- Manual and electromechanical disconnect switches for solar application
