Code Compliance


The NEC requires motors to have readily accessible “line of sight” disconnects that are either an approved switch or a properly rated plug and receptacle.

With their unique ability to withstand high in-rush currents, Meltric Decontactor™ Series plugs and receptacles are the perfect choice for the line of sight disconnect required on motors and other inductive loads. DS, DSN and DB Decontactors are horsepower rated and pass testing at the 6xFLA current level required relative to locked rotor conditions.



NFPA 70E requires that any person working near live parts must wear protective clothing and equipment based on the calculated incident energy exposure level or alternatively on NFPA’s listed minimum requirements.  

Once installed, Meltric Decontactor Series plugs and receptacles simplify compliance to NFPA 70E requirements. Their dead front construction eliminates the possibility of access to live parts so there is no need to don personal protective equipment when changing out motor or other equipment connected with Meltric Decontactors.
