Product Overview

When compact isn’t compact enough, the 701 Master Battery Switch is just the answer.

BEP designed a lot of unique features into the 701 Master Switch. Its smaller size and patented contour lock system are features that stand out and allow it to be locked together with other 700 series switches or to stand alone.

Removable knob: While in the ON or OFF position the control knob cannot be removed, but by turning it counterclockwise 45° it can be removed providing an added level of security and service lock-out.

Interchangeable labels: The control knob also features an interchangeable labeling system (sold separately) allowing a full range of applications.

Easy to install: Removable side plates on four sides allow for easy access of up to 1/0 cables. A rear cover insulates the rear terminals from possible short circuits and meets ABYC requirements. The 701 can be either surface or recess mounted.
