Explore CDS Series Clean Motor Disconnect from MENNEKES

All plant environments have requirements for line-of-sight motor disconnects. That’s why MENNEKES designed their CDS Series to withstand demanding operating conditions — especially in food, beverage and pharmaceutical applications.

The 30-amp CDS Series is perhaps the industry’s first curved, non-metallic motor disconnect. Its unique shedding design eliminates standing water, debris and other contaminants. Because you can’t run power into the top, you also avoid risks like water ingress and condensation. Units match Hubbell’s HBLDS3 footprint, making upgrading to the CDS quick and easy. Watch our video to learn more.

Exploring New CDS Series Clean Motor Disconnect

You will find requirements for line-of-sight motor disconnects in all plant environments. That’s why MENNEKES designed their new CDS Series to withstand demanding operating conditions, especially in food, beverage and pharmaceutical applications.

What’s New

Their 30 Amp CDS Series is perhaps the industry’s first curved, non-metallic motor disconnect. Its unique shedding design eliminates standing water, debris and other contaminants. Because you can’t run power into the top, you also avoid risks like water ingress and condensation.

To mount the CDS Series, you have two options. The first is with external mounting feet. When positioned in a vertical orientation, the unit matches Hubbell’s HBLDS3 footprint, making upgrading to the CDS quick and easy. Second, an internal mounting option maintains the legacy footprint of our MS1A enclosures. Units also feature easy-to-read, laser etched markings and are rated for demanding environments:

  • NSF Certified
  • UL Type 4X and IP69K
  • Robust 20 HP at 480V rating
  • SCCR rating—65,000 AIC with Class J Fus

If you don’t need a curved top or you require top entry, their DS Series satisfies that need with 25, 30 and 40 Amp variants. Best of all, both series have many of the same features as our legacy disconnects, including impact-resistant VALOX® enclosures, stainless steel captive cover screws, highly visible handles for LO/TO, top-position early break auxiliary contacts—and many more.
