The traditional molded-case circuit breaker’s function is to use the electro-mechanical or thermal magnetic trip units that may be fixed or interchangeable. An MCCB is used to provide protection to the electrical circuit. This is done so by combining a temperature sensitive device with a current sensitive electromagnetic device. Both these devices act in tandem to mechanically trip mechanism. Schneider Molded Case Circuit Breaker is one of the best circuit breakers in the market.
The circuit breakers are available in a wide variety of ranges depending on the application. Thus they are available from 15A to 2500A and can be used as and when needed. There are circuit breakers for power distribution as well as those which are used for isolators and switches. Their rugged design and lightweight dimensions make it one of the best possible choices for Circuit breakers.
Here are the features of the Schneider Molded Case Circuit Breaker:
- They have a patented contact design features high-speed “blow-open” action, resulting in superior performance.
- Circuit breakers significantly outperform the calculations listed in The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) standard 1584-2002, Guide for Performing Arc Flash Hazard Calculations.
- You can choose from a complete family of trip units including thermal magnetic, electronic, and magnetic only switches.
