Aug. 8, 2017 – Power management company Eaton has launched its heavy duty safety switches with surge protection, the latest in its expanding portfolio of switching devices.

Combining the safety switches with integrated surge protective devices (SPD) courtesy of the Eaton SP1 and CVX series, this packaged solution promises to provide end-users and contractors with “significantly better” performance than externally mounted devices, resulting in a completely wired, UL-listed solution and better protection for connected equipment. Eaton’s heavy duty safety switches with surge protection, available in switches ranging from 30 to 1,200 amps, offer protection at the service entrance and/or branch circuit level. Other features of the solution include: integral SPD wired to the load side of the switch, which can be isolated from line-side power should the SPD require replacing; external viewing window and enhanced visible blade components for visibility over each pole; and modified safety switch with NEMA Type 12/3R and 4/4X enclosures, as well as a choice of Eaton Type SP1 or CVX surge devices.
