For non-fusible applications, enclosed automatic molded case switches are available. Devices 60 ampere and 100 ampere are cULus Listed. Devices rated 225 ampere are not listed due to limited wire bending space. There is no offering over 225 ampere.  Where overcurrent and short circuit protection is required, Hazardous Location enclosures for molded case circuit breakers are available.
