The GHG 981 switches are protected by an IP66 enclosure and earth terminals. The enclosures are available in plastic, powder-coated sheet steel or electropolished stainless steel versions and can be fitted with flanges and cable glands. The robust, corrosion-resistant switches are suitable for harsh industrial environments with extreme ambient temperatures from -55 to + 55°C.For extra protection, the switches can be locked in the off position by using up to three safety padlocks. They are approved for use in Zone 22 hazardous dust environments such as flour/grain mills, sugar processing, woodworking, food processing, metal processing and other production environments where potentially explosive dusts are present.GHG 981 switches are available in three-, four- or six-pole versions in sizes ranging from 25 to 800A. The switches provide AC 23A motor switching capacity and isolating properties to EN 60947-3 with compulsory opening of the main current contacts. An optional emergency stop version is available to EN 60204-1, which features a red handle with a yellow backplate. For extreme switching conditions, additional leading or lagging auxiliary contacts guarantee safety.To learn more about Eaton and its Crouse-Hinds business, visit www.eaton.euand www.coopercrouse-hinds.eu.
