    TeSys Vario/Mini-Vario switches offer safety, reliability and flexibility. They are compact, easy to use and install, and meet all the international requirements for starting, stopping or insulating motors. The components can be purchased separately or as a complete kit. Reversible terminals have the same 3 pole body fitting with DIN rail or door applications and reduce the amount of references.


    TeSys Vario/Mini-Vario rotary switch disconnectors act as machine circuit load breakers and can be used for the manual stopping and starting of motors across a wide variety of applications.

    Enclosed versions are used close to motors (roofs of buildings, HVAC systems, longs of machines, conveyors) to provide a high level of protection for maintenance people.
