  • Solid-state reliability
  • Solid, reliable mounting method

The CS-400 / SC-500 series of AC current switches are solid-state switches that activate a contact closure whenever the monitored primary circuit current exceeds a pre-set level. Several models are available to switch various load types as indicated in the Product Ordering Chart. Several models feature integral LED's to indicate device power and also the switch status. Most switch models include a multi-turn adjustment to set the trip threshold to the desired value and the GnG model operates as a go/no-go status indicator with a factory set minimum threshold value. The switches can monitor up to 200 Amps continuous and feature an auto-range circuit to eliminate manual jumpers. All models are CSA certified, UL approved and CE compliant.
