Product Features

Product Line:
Double Throw Safety Switches


Voltage system Short Circuit Current Rating(SCCR)

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

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.
