Rotary disconnects are types of switches that are operated through rotation. They have a spindle and a rotor and are used where two or more positions for power interruption are needed. Rotary disconnects are applied where circuit protection
, means of control and safety is required. They are designed for emergency situations to immediately disconnect all circuits from the power supply. They also offer a compact, high-quality and economical choice for switching and isolation purposes. Rotary disconnects can function together with other devices such as circuit breakers
which interrupt electricity flow along a circuit if the current goes beyond the limit of the circuit. They are most important in electrical motors and generators. The factors that determine which rotary disconnect switch is suitable for a particular application area are its current rating, horsepower rating, operating voltage, number of poles and its short-circuit interrupt capacity. Fusible rotary disconnects have installed fuses and offer a greater protection degree, and non-fusible switches have no installed fuses.Let MRO Supply be your single source convenience for all industrial products including supplies, tools and equipment.
