Yes. On many of the 30 - 200A Safety switches the digest or catalog will state "Use 3 Wire Devices for 2 Wire Applications". This can also apply to the larger amperage switches. It may require a solid neutral assembly depending on the voltage system wires. Convention is to normally use the outer poles and leave the center one unconnected.
