This 701 Contour Battery Switch from BEP is a robust ON/OFF master switch that can be used standalone, or locked together with other BEP switches using the patented Contour Locking System. To provide flexible installation options, the switch can be recess-mounted or surface mounted.

The actuation knob can be removed by pushing down and turning anticlockwise 45° past the OFF position, which provides security when leaving your vehicle or boat vehicle unattended and acts as an additional safety 'lock-out' when working on the system. The removable back cover protects the exposed terminals which prevents damage and accidental shorting and meets ABYC specifications. Removable side panels in the body of the unit allow for various cable entry options and this switch is ignition protected for safe use in engine compartments and spaces containing fuel.

BEP tests its battery switches to UL 1107 for Continuous (1 hour), Intermittent (5 minutes) and Cranking (engine starting - 10 seconds) operation. The test is to determine the maximum current the switch can handle for the stated time without the rear terminals exceeding 100°C above the ambient temperature. The continuous and intermittent ratings are tested at 110 percent of specified ratings. All BEP switches are tested Independently to this specification by a 3rd party laboratory.
