Disconnect switches

The MotorQuick disconnect switches are designed to enable faster installation and replacement of motors. Combining the plug-and-play technology of the company’s Linkosity power system and the versatility of its Circuit-Lock motor disconnect switches, these disconnect switches can reduce motor change-out time by more than 65%, according to the company. By pre-wiring a Linkosity inlet to the junction box of a spare motor, they allow the majority of the change-out work to be done when convenient, not critical.
