In commercial kitchens, combining wet environments, and stainless steel equipment, creates a situation where shock can occur.
Electric ranges and other equipment must be movable to meet sanitation standards, requiring plugs. Flexible cords can wear over time, increasing a worker’s risk of electrical shock.
The National Electrical Code (NEC) now requires a ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). The Littelfuse SB5000 Shock Block protects employees from electric shock. It ensures code compliance for 208 V three-phase applications up to 100 A.
Shock Block is a personnel protection device designed to meet the requirements for special-purpose GFCIs defined by UL 943C.
The Littelfuse Shock Block SB5000 offers features that:
Meets GFCI requirements of NEC 210.8 (B) for large electrical equipment in commercial kitchens
Reduces unnecessary tripping by taking advantage of advanced filtering technology
Includes NEMA 4X and IP69K enclosure ratings for all food-preparation environments
The Shock Block SB5000 is available in 32, 60, 80 and 100 amp models
