Switch with (1) form C contact wired to a terminal block, actuated by the temporary cable access panel. When connected to the shunt trip on the permanent engine breaker or the utility service main breaker, it serves to prevent asynchronous connection of the two sources. Shunt tripping the preferred source also prevents the Generator Connection Cabinet from being back-fed, thus ensuring the cabinet is de-energized when personnel are making connections.

Cam-Lok generator connection points can be covered with a spring-closed molded plastic NEMA 3R cover for added safety. Especially useful for larger units where an undersized generator might be connected, resulting in some Cam-Loks remaining unused. Also recommended for load bank applications where the Generator Connection Cabinet is energized by the permanent connections.

Choose this common option for a durable ANSI-61 gray powder coat finish to match other typical painted electrical equipment, or where a (standard) shiny aluminum cabinet is not desired. Other colors available upon request.
