Attention solar installers! If you haven’t heard the news yet, Schneider Electric recently issued a recall notice on their Square D brand 30A and 60A disconnects due to a defect in the switch mechanism resulting in the connection remaining closed when the handle is in the OFF position.
SepiSolar will be notifying our customers whose designs use these disconnects and offering recommendations on alternative equipment and/or suggesting ways to design around this issue. In the meantime, for your safety and the safety of your customers, we recommend checking any recently-performed installations where these disconnects were used.
You can contact Schneider Electric for information on how to service/replace defective disconnects. Here’s a link to the official CPSC recall notice.
