Industrial Tap Switches Have Many Uses
WEYMOUTH, MA - Rotary Tap Switches available from Electroswitch support a multitude of industrial applications. Available in molded- and fabricated-base designs, these heavy-duty switches can be configured for either manual or motor operation. With dual (continuous/intermittent) ratings ranging from 100/150 to 1600/2400 amps at 600 volts, they are available in single-, two-, or three-phase models.
The basic design of an Electroswitch Tap Switch lends itself to modifications. Options include increased voltage and amperage ratings, angled terminals, key-interlock provisions, auxiliary switches for remote indication, an "OFF" position, and a mechanical-release handle. Additional capabilities such as series/parallel switching, wye-delta switching, generator winding controls, high-frequency switching, motor reversing, and polarity reversing are also available. Some models have built-in rotor-lubrication systems.
Every Electroswitch Tap Switch features long-life contacts that withstand vibration; low operating torque; high-pressure line contact; flame-retardant, nontracking insulation; precision-made nonferrous parts; an escutcheon; and a handle that accommodates two padlocks. All current-carrying parts of models rated for 200 or more amps are heavily silver-plated. Models rated for less than 1000 amps have lightweight glass-fiber-reinforced bases.
