NJ Sullivan’s Bolted Pressure Switch is a custom metal fabricated electrical product that is designed to meet the specific needs of customers. The switch is recommended for use in service entrance switchgear, and where there may be high available fault current. It features cabinets that are constructed of 12 Gauge galvanized steel, with all joints and seams welded and powder-coated for long-lasting indoor NEMA Type 1 or outdoor NEMA Type 3R use. The switch is also designed to meet UL and NEMA standards.
One of the key benefits of NJ Sullivan’s Bolted Pressure Switch is its customizability. Customers can choose from a range of available options, including top or bottom feed, ground fault, shunt trip operator, key interlock provisions, motorized manual operator, and motorized shunt trip operator. This ensures that the switch meets the unique needs of each customer, and that it can be integrated seamlessly into their existing electrical systems.
Another advantage of NJ Sullivan’s Bolted Pressure Switch is that it is made in the USA at the company’s Sterling, Virginia plant. This location is conveniently located in the Washington, D.C. area near Dulles airport, which means that the switch can be turned around quickly from the factory. This is especially important for customers who need their electrical systems to be up and running as quickly as possible.
In terms of design, NJ Sullivan’s Bolted Pressure Switch features a knife blade type design with stationary contacts, movable contacts, and a switching mechanism to drive the contacts apart, interrupting current flow. The operating mechanism can be manual or pneumatically driven, and modern versions operate faster to prevent arcing. Switches are UL rated at 60 degrees at the rated current, with spring-loaded versions being replaced with bolts and cam systems for better contact and reduced resistance.
Overall, NJ Sullivan’s Bolted Pressure Switch is a highly customizable, reliable, and efficient electrical product that is designed to meet the unique needs of customers. Its quick turnaround time from the factory and its adherence to UL and NEMA standards make it an excellent choice for anyone who needs a high-quality pressure switch for their electrical systems.
