Ask a Question

Are molded case switches horsepower or motor rated?

They are not specifically HP rated. Switches for disconnect are chosen based on the rating of the overcurrent protective device (CB or fuse). The switch must be protected by a circuit breaker or fuse of equal or lesser ampacity, and the short circuit availability of the circuit must not exceed the withstand rating of the switch.
