What is the purpose of these? If you install it in a breaker panel it appears it would need to have some ocp.ha, no I mean what would you call them looking them up. I tried a couple of ways, looked on square d site under breakers and nothing. Maybe they don't make them anymore. Used to say no overcurrent protection on them.
what is the proper name for the breaker with no number on the handle used for switching only/ wanted to get a picture of one, online. can't seem to get the right words together, I guess they still make them. I have seen them in square d. thanks for any help kevin
The only way I have seen the "molded case switch" is with an enclosure. When I was doing residential I would buy them because they were cheap, throw away the "switch" and buy the breaker I needed.
They are NOT breakers, they are disconnects.
I just put one on an irrigation pump.
They resemble breakers, fit like breakers, but have NO over current protection. I believe Sq D calls them 'molded switches'.
No more 'dangerous' than a 20+ amp breaker.
