With Class H or K fuses installed, the switches are CSA listed for use on systems with up to 10,000 RMS Symmetrical Amperes available fault current.

NOTE: DO NOT USE RENEWABLE LINK FUSES IN SQUARE D SAFETY SWITCHES. The use of renewable link fuses may adversely affect user safety, impair reliability and will void the warranty.
