3MTM PanelSafeTM Lockout System

3Innovation

Lock in Safety with 3MPanelSafeLockout System

3M’s PanelSafe Lockout System mechanically prevents the movement of breaker handles from the “off” position to the “on” position with energy isolating lockout pins. With PanelSafe, 3M is dedicated to helping you meet applicable OSHA regulations, which require all electrical circuits to be “locked out” prior to the servicing and maintenance of machines, lighting and equipment. 3M PanelSafe Lockout System complies with OSHA Standard 1910.147.

The unit, supplied with pre-drilled mounting holes, fastens directly to the service panel dead-front using self-tapping screws. The energy isolating lockout pins are stored in a holding device also attached to the dead-front by means of self-tapping screws, making the entire assembly and its accessories completely contained behind the panel door. Those authorized to perform a lockout function need only carry their lock and tag.

In your business, power, technology and reliability are essential. 3M delivers that and more.

We have the power of a diversified, global manufacturer with more than 60,000 products in our line; a reputation for technical excellence and innovation; and employees committed to delivering

quality products and service to you, our valued customer.

Our capability doesn't stop with electrical products,

it starts there.

To explore the many ways we can serve you, contact your 3M representative today!

A permanently installed circuit breaker lockout system, 3M PanelSafe is designed with pre-spaced slots that correspond to the center point of the service panel breaker handles. The unit is properly positioned when the center of each pin slot is aligned with the center of each breaker handle. Once installed, 3M PanelSafe, which fits all brands and models, completely eliminates the

need for employees to constantly carry numerous lockout devices each designed to fit a specific manufacturers panel and breaker type.

For the ultimate flexibility, a standard pin package includes both single-sided and dual-sided pins for simultaneously locking off multiple circuits. Additionally, the package contains a hook pin designed for use in situations where protecting against a nuisance turn-off of dedicated or passive circuits is critical. Such applications may include fire suppression systems, emergency lighting and computer systems.

The use of 3M PanelSafe will increase safety as well as help reduce costs.

3MPanelSafeLockout System Accessories

3Moffers various pins, shims and brackets, so that the PanelSafe Lockout System can be used, even if the panel front is not flat.

Offset Brackets

Used in conjunction with a PanelSafeunit when breakers are recessed below the dead front and no area is available to mount a PanelSafe unit by standard means. Available only in pairs.

Main Breaker/Large Frame Lockout Set

On large frame breakers where the handle thickness (size) and the ability to mount a standard PanelSafeunit is not applicable, a main breaker lockout is used either separately, as shown at right, or in conjunction with the main breaker brackets as shown below. Includes one each: PS-MB, PS-BS, PS-MP.

Main Breaker Bracket

When a main breaker lockout cannot be directly attached to the dead front because of extended breaker casing, a pair of main breaker brackets must be used. The main breaker lockout is attached to the bracket which is expanded and attached to the insides of both sides of the panel. A brace (see below) and main breaker pin (see below) must also be used. Main breaker brackets are sold in pairs only.

Main Breaker Brace

Used in conjunction with the main breaker bracket (shown above) this brace is attached to the bracket which is then expanded and attached to the insides of both sides of the panel. The assembly is positioned below the breaker handle acting as a receptacle for the main breaker pin (shown below).

Main Breaker Pin

A main breaker pin is used only with the main breaker lockout to lockout a large frame breaker.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is PanelSafe?

PanelSafe is a device, which is permanently mounted to the dead front of a circuit breaker panel that allows individual or multiple circuits to be locked off simultaneously.

Why is it important to lock off circuits?

OSHA, in its standard 1910.147, requires power to be locked off at the power source any time routine maintenance of equipment, lighting or machinery is being performed. The procedure is called lockout/tagout.

How is PanelSafe attached to the dead front?

It should be attached using the self-tapping screws that are provided (no shavings will fall into the panel). It is a good practice to always turn off the power.

Will it fit all my panels or just the Square D load center that I see in your literature?

It will fit any manufactured panel.

How can PanelSafe work on any panel?

It works based on the distance of the centers from breaker handle to breaker handle. You start by measuring the distance from the center of the top breaker to the center of the breaker handle directly beneath it. Then you count the number of breakers on one side of the panel. Using these two measurements you are ready to order the proper unit.

Suppose the panel has a bead running down the center keeping the PanelSafe unit from laying flat?

On distribution panels (usually GE) where a raised, round bead runs down the center of the dead front the slotted shim (PS-SH2) must be used. It fits over the bead and provides a flat surface on which to mount the PanelSafe unit. These are available only in pairs.

I have ITE panels and they have a V notch extending down the length of the dead front. Can PanelSafe work on these units?

Yes, you would use the V-notch shim, PS-SH4 to make the installation.

I have a destruction panel where the body of each breaker extends out beyond the level of the dead front. How do I remedy that?

By using either PS-SH1, which is an 1/8" shim, or PS-SH3, which is an 1/2" shim. This shim is used primarily on Square D and some GE panels where the breaker is exposed

1/2" above the dead front. If either of these doesn’t work then you may have to make a shim that will fit correctly. Maintenance people should have no trouble figuring this out.

When are offset brackets used?

They are used with a PanelSafe unit when breakers are recessed below the dead front and no area is available to mount a PanelSafe unit by standard means. Theses are only available in pairs and are either 2" long (PS-OB1) or 3 1/2" long (PS-OB2).

Suppose I can’t mount a PanelSafe unit down the center of a panel.

This would probably occur because there is no center (only the plastic breaker casing) or because the pins used to secure the breaker in the off position will not reach the breaker handle in the off position. These panels require multiple PanelSafe units and in many, if not most cases, offset brackets. The offset brackets, PS-OB1 or PS-OB2, may be mounted to the rise on the outside of the panel. The PanelSafe is then attached to the offset brackets. Remember, if you are mounting the PanelSafe on offset brackets, you will now need to Pull the breaker to the off position because the unit is positioned to the outside of the breaker handle. This requires that a hook pin (PS-HP) be used. It would probably be wise to order an extra package of hook pins when this situation occurs.

Can I lockout twin, half-size or piggyback breakers?

Yes. Where twin or piggyback breakers are being used, you should order PS-SP05. This pin allows you to lockout either twin alone by simply rotating the pin 180° for either the top or bottom breaker.

You mention in the literature that a circuit can be secured “on”. Where would it make sense to do that?

A circuit can be secured “on” when it is powering something that you don’t want inadvertently turned off. Examples would be fire alarm systems, computer systems, runway lights at airports, etc. Drug companies particularly like this feature since they often have experiments running that would be rendered useless if the power would be turned off.

If the circuit is secured “on”, will it trip?

Yes, it will still trip because the breakers trip internally.

Determining the Correct 3M PanelSafe Unit

Breaker Panel

Step 1: Measure the distance between breaker space center lines ( 1 on diagram). Reference chart 1 for first two digits of product numbers.

Step 2: Count the number of breaker spaces on one side of the load center ( 2 on diagram). These are the last two digits of your product number.

Examples of various load centers:

3/4" spacing between breakers and 42 circuits = 07 (designation for 3/4") 21 (number of circuits down one side of the load center). In this case, the part number for the required unit is PS-0721.

1" spacing between breakers and 18 circuits = 10 (designation for 1") 09 (number of circuits down one side of the load center). In this case, the part number for the required unit is PS-1009.

Step 3: Visually check the configuration of the breakers and the surface that the PanelSafe is to be mounted upon. If the surface has any irregular shapes or the breakers use a non-traditional setup (traditional 2 rows with a metal center strip as shown on cover), please order the correct shims or accessories shown in this brochure.
