Battery disconnect switch

16 May 2012 Switches, Relays & Keypads

Gigavac has released a new double-pole single-throw (DPST) sealed manual battery disconnect switch – the BD9521 – ideal for assuring battery isolation during maintenance or other downtime situations. Use of the BD9521 eliminates the need to remove cables, thus making battery disconnection routinely safe. For additional safety, the switch handle can be secured in either the on or off position with a customer-provided zip tie or lock that can prevent accidental switching.

The device meets IEC529 and IP67 sealing standards against dust and water immersion to one metre, making it very capable in virtually any land-based battery application requiring up to 500 A continuous current. For use at continuous voltages to 32 V d.c., the low 150 mV maximum contact voltage drop provides efficient insertion into any application requirement. Installation is simple with nickel plated M12 studs providing easy connection for cable lugs.
