INDUSTRY INNOVATIONS: Cole Hersee Makes Battery Disconnect Switch

Master Battery Disconnect SwitchCole Hersee Company is making a new Master Battery Disconnect Switch that is described as ideal for emergency vehicle applications.

The switch provides an effective emergency power cutoff, protecting vehicles from tampering, theft and battery drain. It also provides service personnel with an extra level of safety, protecting them from hazards, according to the company, and it can be locked-out or tagged-out to satisfy OSHA requirements for energy isolation.

The switch’s composite engineered polymer housing will not rust or corrode even when mounted in exposed locations. It has a high amperage capacity of 300 amps at 12 volts DC, can be used in high side or low side applications and fits the standard Master Disconnect Switch mounting pattern. The switch’s large red knob allows for easy operation with gloved hands, and 90degree switch travel makes it easy to identify the position.

Cole Hersee, founded in 1924, is a leading manufacturer of heavy-duty electrical, electronic, and digital products for the vehicle industry.
