In April 2019, Marechal Electric launched its first switch disconnector 40 A and first separable switch disconnector, EVO, allowing users to safely connect and disconnect devices. Switch, disconnector and connector – it merges three products in one, for easier use and less volume. EVO’s creation was in line with the company’s desire to increase safety for users and installations. Its infallible mechanism allows opening and separation, even if there is an over-intensity or overvoltage default.
Today, with a classic switch-disconnector, in cases of over-intensity, users cannot be assured of the disconnection if the contacts melt. With EVO, the breaking is visible: the product is separated in two parts. Furthermore, its rotary twist introduces a new safety reflex. By aligning both ‘O’s’, users put together the two parts of the switch disconnector without any powering. With a twist movement the product is moved into the ‘Off’ position: it is ready to be connected but there is no power going through. In this position, it is a watertight disconnected product. Finally, a last twist movement puts the product in the ‘On’ position: it is powered but still watertight.
The Marechal Electric switch disconnector 40 A adapts to harsh environments: -25 °C to +60 °C. With EVO, the separation shows the exact position of the contacts and ensures 100% safety during any maintenance operation. It is made from quality materials and offers great flexibility in terms of hygiene, robustness and reliability in the most demanding applications. It can be used in all industries and is particularly easy to install: only one tool is needed. With a screwdriver, the installer can easily put the switch isolator in place. Technical features Equipped with self-cleaning silver contacts with silver tips and a patented and unique ‘twist’ mechanism, the new technological concept combines the functionalities of a 40 A switch and a disconnector.
The combination of three products in one simplifies the electrical installation. Furthermore, its ergonomic design makes handling and cleaning easier. The product is watertight (IP66/IP67), in ‘On’ and ‘Off’ positions. Safety is Marechal Electric’s watchword, therefore access to active parts is made impossible, ensuring it can be used safely. Its visible and detachable break guarantees the safe isolation of any low electrical circuit (ac 23 18.5 kW, ac 3 11 kW). Through its certifications, EVO40 complies with the IEC 60204- 1 standard for machine safety. Finally, the new switch disconnector is adapted for all motor plugging configurations, up to six poles plus earth.
