What is the maximum short circuit current rating (or AIC rating) for Double Throw safety switches?

Issue:
Product Features

Product Line:
Double Throw Safety Switches

Environment:
Application

Cause:
Voltage system Short Circuit Current Rating(SCCR)

Resolution:
The Short Circuit Current Rating(or SCCR) for the Double Throw Safety Switches is dependent upon the type of fuse used either inside the switch(FUSIBLE) OR protecting the switch upstream
(NON-Fusible). 
Please refer to the switch wiring diagram, the switch 2D CAD drawing or the latest Square D Digest for further information. The Digest Plus Selector, the on-line version of the Digest, is available at www.squared.com.

NOTE: there are some limited SCCR's for use with circuit breakers being used in conjunction with Non-Fusible switches. See the current On-Line Digest Plus Selector pages or the switch wiring diagram, located ON the switch.
