Zone Blasting Switch

Zone Blasting Switch

Safety is paramount in any electrical application, and when you combine dangerous blasting operations found in mining, quarrying or roadway construction, safety concerns extend well beyond the operator.

The Zone Blastinging Switch from Eaton, is designed with three mechanically interlocked and lockable positions. Increase safety through a single point of control during the blasting process, and a separate deadshort position safeguarding against premature blasts. The all in one mechanical connection to short-circuit the blasting leg wires, reduces installation time therefore providing additional labour savings. A permanent galvanometer testing connection is a quick, simple and safe standard feature as opposed to the alternate methods of twisting and untwisting wires when performing short and test functions.
