I need a fused pullout 240 V 60A steel AC disconnect rated at 10 horse power with a built in GFCI receptacle for use as a convenience outlet required by 2020 NEC, but cannot find one available. Has anyone heard of a manufacturer who makes one? Can you provide a model number?
I know this sounds like I am simply and self-centeredly seeking help shopping for something. That may be partially true, but mostly it is not. I have spent days and days searching for such an AC disconnect to replace the non-fused one I already purchased that had a GFCI receptacle built-in, then discovered that I need extra fuses to bridge a low SCCR device and a much higher AFC that can appear at its inputs should a fault occur. I know I can use a current limiting fuse for this situation, but cannot find a fusible disconnect with a GFCI receptacle to put them in. I did find one that exactly met my needs that Siemens makes, but no matter where among the many places I looked (except for an abused one on eBay) every seller said "out of stock." I've been spinning my wheels going around in circles and thought that maybe someone might have been there and done that, or may have used one such as I describe and knows which company makes one.
Also, I realize there is a strong general feeling among electricians that putting a GFCI receptacle inside an AC disconnect isn't what they would recommend or do. I accept that they have their reasons for feeling that way, maybe it seems like too much extra work to ask of them, but I have spent a large amount of time thinking about having this option and see good reasons to have a convenience 120 V GFCI outlet inside the disconnect, and especially so considering the design of the model I did purchase from MARS that permits two plug cords to be plugged in and still be able to close the disconnect door. It's a well designed product. Unfortunately they do not seem to make the fusible version, else I would have purchased it.
On a large distributor's website, I checked the manufacturer with the greatest selection of AC Disconnects, Siemens. They had 25 different AC Disconnects listed, and 36% of those listed now have GFCI receptacles built-in. I think that proves that I am not crazy wanting to have a GFCI receptacle in the disconnect. One of those met my needs, but it is the one I had been scouring the earth trying to find in stock somewhere.
