General Duty Safety Switches

Most general duty switches are suitable for use as service equipment when equipped with a factory or field installed neutral assembly or a field installed service grounding kit.
1) The following general duty safety switches DO NOT have solid neutral assemblies that can be used in the switch: DU321, DU321RB, DU322, DU322RB, and DU325. If a neutral is required, consider using a heavy duty switch.
2) If the switch is older and already installed, CHECK the wiring diagram to see if it shows a solid neutral assembly or service/equipment ground kit part number. If NOT, then it doesn't allow or have a solid neutral or ground kit that can be installed.
