AC fused disconnect for effective small cell power management

18-05-2021 | Transtector | Power

Transtector Systems has released a space-saving 100A outdoor AC fused disconnect, supplying users with fused protection and manual power shut-off capabilities in industrial sites, small cells and other applications.

In a NEMA 3R outdoor-rated enclosure, the AC fused disconnect connects a switch to disconnect the circuit and a fuse to shut off the circuit in the event of an issue, all in a 9" wide footprint for concealment in pole-mount applications. When installing or maintaining equipment on the circuit, or the circuit itself, the switch gives a local method to manually shut off the power, reducing downtime and enhancing safety.

This new device provides a 100A input rating, more than adequate for most typical applications. A 200kAIC fault current rating contains all service applications. It is UL508A certified.

“Working directly with our customers, we’ve found a need for reliable fault current coordination and power shut-off access at small cell sites,” said Dan Rebeck, product line manager. “This new outdoor AC fused disconnect helps users safely and reliably manage power in these applications, whether they need to shut off power for equipment maintenance or just deploy a level of fault current protection.”
