Spec Sheet - Style Drawer Blade with Interlock Box
Style Drawer Blade’s interlocking thermostats have always cut power to the outlet in the event that the ambient temperature exceeds 120° F. Now with the addition of the Style Drawer Blade Interlock Box, Style Drawer Blade and Blade Duo outlets can be de-energized when the drawer starts to close.
For our Canadian customers, the Style Drawer Blade Interlock Box satisfies the requirements listed in section 26-710 of the Canadian Electrical Code (CEC) that stipulates the outlet is de-energized when a drawer is closed. This means that the Style Drawer Blade in-drawer powering outlets with the Style Drawer Interlock Box will be the first ever in-drawer outlet to pass electrical inspections in Canada.
For our customers in the United States and Mexico the Style Drawer Interlock box is not required to pass electrical inspections; however, it can be used to provide an additional level of safety.
How Does It Work? The Style Drawer Blade Interlock Box can easily be installed between the cabinet’s electrical supply and the Style Drawer Blade handy box. It serves as an interlock which cuts power to the outlet if the drawer box is not fully open.
Using a micro switch to detect the position of the drawer box, the Style Drawer Blade Interlock Box increases the level of safety provided by our outlets. And as with all our products, this low voltage switch has been extensively cycle tested to ensure trouble-free use. Should an issue arise or if the micro switch becomes disconnected from the interlock box, power is automatically cut to the outlet.
