Control switch relay offers time delay trip/close, addressing arc-flash safety

The new Time Delay Control Switch Relay (TD-CSR) from Electroswitch provides safe, effective, manual control of circuit breakers.

Weymouth, Mass., January 13, 2009—The new Time Delay Control Switch Relay (TD-CSR) from Electroswitch provides safe, effective, manual control of circuit breakers.

Its flashing LED notifies the operator of a pending trip or close operation in time to evacuate the “arc flash” area.

To reduce the chance of an inadvertent operation, the control buttons must be depressed for 4 continuous seconds to activate the 10-second delay. (Other delay times are available.)
