General duty switches are intended for applications where reliable performance and continuity of service are needed, but where duty requirements are not severe and usual service conditions prevail. (These switches are intended for use primarily with supply circuits rated 240V AC or less where the available fault current is less than 100,000A when used with Class R or T fuses or 10,000A max. when used with Class H fuses.)

Heavy Duty Safety Switches

They offer a wide range of accessories including 200% neutrals and isolated ground kits which are not available with competitive products.
