Sloped-Top Stainless Steel Disconnects Now Offer Control Switch from Mennekes

DCS MENNEKE Sloped Top Stainless Steel Disconnects 1 400

March 1, 2022

 

In MENNEKES’ last blog post, they discussed their non-metallic, curved-top CDS disconnect switches with an optional three-position selector switch, saving valuable installation space, reducing parts and improving safety for maintenance personnel. These same features and benefits also extend to their sloped-top stainless steel motor disconnects, which incorporate a 15-degree sloped roof to facilitate liquid run-off in washdown applications.

The HAND-OFF-AUTO (HOA) selector switch option is available in their SLP stainless steel motor disconnect program with 30A to 100A ratings. Adding this control switch option improves safety for maintenance personnel, while the stainless steel enclosure offers robust impact resistance in high traffic areas.

The new HOA switch is just one of the many features you can expect with MENNEKES stainless motor disconnects. These units also include the following:

  • •UL Type 4X; 12; IP69K environmental ratings.
  • •Removable cover with captive hardware.
  • •External mounting feet or optional internal mounting with sealing caps.
  • •SCCR: 65kA RMS symmetrical (when protected with Class J Fuse).
  • •Generous drainage channel to prevent harborage of contaminants.
  • •Rugged, UV-resistant handle complies with OSHA LO/TO regulations.
  • •In-house endurance testing to 10,000 (electrical) and 100,000 (mechanical) cycles.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
