Walther's pin & sleeve devices are built to IEC 309-1 and 309-2 specifications and are interchangeable with other manufacturers who conform to the IEC standards and color coding system...anywhere in the world. Manufacturers that do not comply with the standards have their own proprietary configurations and are not plug compatible with other pin & sleeve products.

Once you have selected a proprietary configuration you are locked in to a single source. Specifying IEC 309-1 & 309-2 devices provides convenience and flexibility that users have come to accept almost without thinking.

Manual Distribution Switches


Walther Electirc Building


Walther's Manual Disconnect Switch combines a horsepower rated switch in a tough, impervious NEMA 4X enclosure for safe motor load disconnect. The padlock handle provides lockout protection, in the "OFF" position, to comply with OSHA Lockout/Tagout regulations. In addition, the enclosure cover cannot be removed from the body until the switch is turned to the "OFF" position.

The nonmetallic enclosure, while abuse and corrosion resistant, is also non conductive, which enhances the safety of the product. The device can be connected to metallic conduit without interfering with the ground continuity.


These horsepower rated devices are available in 30, 60 and 100 amp ratinsgs.

Type 4X enclosures are designed for the most demanding environments and provide protection against corrosion, dirt, dust, splashing water and hose-directed water.

Walther Type 4X enclosures provide exceptional UV stability for superior outdoor performance.
