Exciting changes for ABB eOT enclosed disconnects

ABB Disconnects 2

ABB eOT enclosed disconnects soon to be made in the US, and now include IEC ratings

ABB is pleased to announce the assembly of its eOT enclosed disconnects will soon begin a gradual relocation from Mexico to our plant in Senatobia, MS. This move will allow ABB to be closer to the customer and respond quickly to market demands. In addition, IEC ratings have been added to select part numbers.

Changes to expect:

  • Assembly location markings to change from “Assembled in Mexico” to “Assembled in the U.S.”
  • IEC ratings and CE markings across the board – except for NEMA 1-rated enclosures. To date, these products have been only UL rated.
  • These ratings can now be found on the global product page.
  • The catalog is being updated with the new ratings and scheduled to be released during Q2 of this year.
  • Handle sizes were changed in selected part numbers to 45mm in order to meet specifications for receiving IEC rating. This change accommodates the operation torque necessary for IEC that is not relevant to the UL market. See the chart in “Related Links” for more information on the new handle size and which products were affected.
