Re: Emergency stop button

Max Maginness

Such a switch should be rated the current capacity of the circuit. Most house circuits are at least 15 Amp. These switches are rated for 10A. If there is a major 120v short it will pull out the panel circuit breaker. A partial overload but within the circuit breaker rating may not be handled by this switch.
