In May, Legrand announced the launch of a new series of 316-Grade Stainless Steel Safety Switches designed for use in harsh environments like food and beverage processing plants and industrial facilities, where wash-down/hose-down procedures at extreme temperatures are a daily necessity.

As part of the Pass & Seymour® product line, the new series of stainless steel switches are available in both standard and sloped-roof designs and offer water- and dust-tight enclosures rated NEMA 4X/12 and IP66/67/69 for protection against high-pressure, high-temperature. The corrosion-resistant switches are available in 30A, 60A, 60A HP and 100A configurations and can accommodate up to three sets of auxiliary contacts for control circuit applications.

Legrand’s new Stainless Steel Safety switches are NSF certified for food processing and offer a range of features designed to promote reliability, personal safety and maximum protection against corrosion in any environment.  These include:

  • No labels on cover, stamped-in ON/OFF
  • Type 316 Stainless Steel Housing (14-gauge type)
  • Inability to remove cover when in ON position
  • High-visibility yellow and red handles to meet OSHA lockout/tag out requirements
  • Captive cover screws
  • Compact footprint
