Can a NEMA Type 3R Safety Switch be used in an application requiring NEMA Type 3 device?

Issue:
Application

Product Line:
HD SS

Cause:
Application

Resolution:
The NEMA Type 3 adds windblown dust protection to the NEMA Type 3R requirements. A NEMA Type 3R would not be listed, nor labeled, for use in a NEMA Type 3 environment. Consider a NEMA Type 12/3R for the NEMA Type 3 application and remove the drain screw from the bottom endwall.
