Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. announced the release of their new rotary switch product family. In 2010, SEL, a leader in the power protection industry, purchased VoltAmp, a leading manufacturer of rotary switches.  Building upon VoltAmp’s 40 years of switch manufacturing experience, SEL has integrated its state-of-the-art technology and design standards into the new product line to create the next generation of rotary switches.

“Having been a VoltAmp user for years, we were honored to take ownership of their line and excited to incorporate our experience as an end user, along with our technology and innovation, into the switches,” said Mauricio Toache, general director of SEL Mexico.

This investment in new manufacturing and testing equipment allows SEL to offer the most versatile and durable switches available, and will enable the company to further expand into new areas of manufacturing.

The new rotary switch family includes lockout, breaker control, and selector switches that have been redesigned to increase reliability, security, ease of use, and flexibility while reducing costs and lead times.

“Our customers can rely on SEL’s rugged rotary switches to operate even during digital equipment failure or maintenance,” said Jean Leon Eternod, research and development director for SEL Mexico. “This high reliability is essential for protecting personnel and equipment.”

SEL rotary switches exceed UL, IEEE, and IEC standards. They feature up to 60 double-break contacts on 15 decks, a nominal current of 30 A, and an interrupting current of 8 A @125 Vdc. Other features include configurable labels and captive screws, ergonomic handles, and flexible contact configuration. SEL monitors and controls all manufacturing processes to meet the ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems Standard.
