Arrow Hart® X-Switch™ Motor Control


Cooper Wiring Devices, a division of Cooper Industries, has introduced the Arrow Hart X-Switch, the food and beverage industry’s first NSF Splash Zone Certified motor control switch. The X-Switch is designed specifically for the complex food and beverage processing environments, and stands up to the most abusive industrial manufacturing applications where equipment is exposed to frequent wash down.  

The X-Switch is designed to provide safe and reliable motor control switching, while also addressing the code and environmental requirements unique to food and beverage applications. The Type 4X enclosure is made from durable stainless steel, and contains a molded silicon gasket for easy cleaning and superior protection of electrical components.  A high-visibility red handle can be padlocked to meet OSHA lockout/tagout requirements, and the pre-wired, fixed grounding lugs provide safe and dependable ground continuity.

The X-Switch is designed to reduce time and costs associated with downtime and maintenance.  The product is available with pre-wired SOFTPower™ connectivity for easy installation and motor change-outs, which reduces downtime by up to 75%. Quick-drive hex cover bolts allow for easy access inside the panel, and fork terminals allow for easy phase changes, cutting downtime associated with planned maintenance.

The X-Switch is also available with a unique stainless steel breather/drain designed to equalize pressure within the enclosure and provide a means for exit of any condensation build-up within the enclosure.
