Blade Series Limit Switch mounts to any 20 amp Docking Drawer Blade Series outlet to detect the drawer position and de-energize the connected Docking Drawer outlet (as well as the Safety Interlock Outlet itself) when the drawer is closed.

*Only for use with Blade Series in-drawer outlets. For general applications, such as cabinet doors, choose a General Purpose Limit Switch.

Smart De-Energizing Design

With the Safety Interlock Outlet with Blade Limit Switch, you can trust that your outlet will de-energize upon detecting the closing of your drawer. The meticulously designed Blade Limit Switch utilizes a metal mechanical roller ball that consistently engages with the metal arms, ensuring durability over time, even with heavy use (unlike magnets, which wear easily and can be inconsistent). This straightforward yet intelligent design detects the drawer's position as it closes. The switch promptly de-energizes, cutting power to both the connected Docking Drawer outlet and the Safety Interlock Outlet to safeguard against potential risks posed by unattended or forgotten heat devices and appliances. The Blade Limit Switch can also be repositioned and adjusted to accurately detect drawer positions. This outlet is designed for use with Blade Series outlets featuring AC configurations, as all USB outlets are permissible in Canada and do not require de-energization.

Compliant & Easy Installation

The 20 amp Safety Interlock Outlet is a single gang electrical outlet equipped with one NEMA 5-20R receptacle and one low voltage interlock switch connector. Designed to fit into a standard junction box, installation is quick and straightforward. Attaching the Blade Limit Switch to the rear mounting bracket of the Blade outlet takes only a few minutes, requiring a simple screwdriver and included screws for attachment and adjustment into the ideal position. The system adheres to the National Electrical Code (NEC) for the United States and the Canadian Electrical Code (CEC)*. Additionally, it is ETL Listed for use in both the United States and Canada. If you are looking for an outlet that works best for fixed appliance garages (those without a pull-out tray), please explore our Safety Interlock Disconnect with Corner Mount Limit Switch solution.

*The Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) has the final say on whether an installation meets the requirements of the Canadian Electrical Code.

Elevated Safety for Appliances

Each Docking Drawer outlet prioritizes safety by incorporating a built-in feature that automatically deactivates power when ambient temperatures exceed 120°F. The Safety Interlock Outlet with Blade Limit Switch introduces an extra layer of protection, specifically designed for spaces where heat-producing tools and appliances are frequently used in drawers or enclosed areas with pull-out trays, such as bathroom vanities. This cutting-edge solution alleviates the concern of leaving kitchen appliances—like toaster ovens, coffee makers, and microwaves—plugged in during the rush of your daily routine. As you close your drawer or pull-out tray, you can be confident that the outlets powering your appliances are de-energized, creating a safer and stress-free living environment for you and your family.
