These disconnects have a sloped-top clean design

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

The new SLPX Series of sloped-top motor disconnects (photo) enable plant operators to more easily prioritize sanitation while meeting requirements for multiple disconnects. Available in three multi-gang enclosure sizes, the stainless-steel SLPX Series features a unique clean design for critical washdown and processing areas. Units are UL Listed, rated NEMA 4X and include a 15-deg sloped roof to facilitate liquid runoff. They are also suitable for multiple disconnect requirements, reducing cost and time with one-box installation. These enclosures are designed for 30- and 60-A switches and have early break auxiliary contacts for variable frequency drive (VFD) and starter interfaces. — Mennekes Elektrotechnik GmbH & Co.
