Three Motor Disconnects Featuring Industry-Standard Mounting Options

DCS Three Motor Disconnects Featuring Industry Standard Mounting from MENNEKES 1 400x275

November 30, 2022

 

Need to upgrade motor disconnects in your facility? MENNEKES has three great options for you that use industry-standard mounting patterns, making each option a true drop-in replacement. These units include sloped- and curved-top designs to facilitate liquid runoff in washdown settings to enhance plant sanitation while offering superior functionality and durability.

CDS Series. The first option is our curved profile CDS Series motor disconnect, which offers a reliable way to safely control power to meet lockout-tagout (LO/TO) requirements. With an impact modified chemically resistant enclosure, CDS units are rated UL Type 4X and IP69K to withstand high-pressure and frequent washdown conditions. NSF-certified with a 30A and 25HP rating, this series can satisfy most line disconnect requirements.

DS Series. If your application doesn’t require a curved design, our new DS Series incorporates many of the same CDS features, but its flat roof allows for both top and bottom conduit entry. Both the DS and CDS Series disconnects feature two mounting systems: internal sealed caps to current MENNEKES footprint or with external feet compatible with HBLDS3 and HBLDS3AC.

SPEC Grade Series. Your third option is our SPEC Grade motor disconnect unit. This compact stainless steel disconnect is ideally suited to critical washdown and cleanroom areas similar to our non-metallic units. Like the CDS and DS models, the SPEC Grade unit has an industry standard mounting pattern for drop-in replacement of existing motor disconnects.

All MENNEKES SPEC Grade stainless products feature a 15-degree sloped roof for liquid runoff and are UL Type 4X rated. Available in multiple enclosures and switch sizes, other options include blank junction boxes, 1–4 position pushbutton enclosures or combination units with installed receptacles or multi-gang disconnect switches.

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.
