Schneider Electric unveils a new generation of ComPacT molded-case circuit breakers redesigned for improved efficiency for panel builders
- Schneider Electric builds on the solid reputation of ComPacT circuit breakers with new native connectivity and ergonomic improvements.
- By retaining the same footprint as previous iterations, the new generation of ComPacT breakers simplifies retrofitting.
- IoT-ready wireless auxiliaries and plug-and-play modules easily put data into the hands of users
Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced a new generation of its respected ComPacT™ molded-case circuit breakers. Featuring a refreshed design that retains the footprint of previous models, the ComPacT breakers are tailored for operational excellence and major simplification of maintenance activities.
The ComPacT range now comes connectivity-ready, and modular plug-and-play accessories expand the capacity for advanced monitoring capabilities. By keeping the new units the same shape and size as their predecessors, electrical professionals can easily retrofit breakers already in use. This also opens the opportunity to expanding the capabilities of ComPacT breakers transgenerationally to unleash digital intelligence.
This native connectivity revolutionizes and enhances installing, maintaining, or upgrading the all-new ComPacT range. New wireless auxiliaries give users improved insight into their electric distribution system to maximize power availability. By putting data in the hands of users anywhere, anytime, for increased monitoring and decision making, this advancement redefines how we work in the IoT age.
A major design improvement is the introduction of a semi-transparent front faceplate. This innovation makes it easy to see at a glance which auxiliaries are at work in the breaker, and that they are correctly installed.
The ComPacT range continues to feature EverLink connectors for reliable and quick bare cable connections, as well as built-in DIN rails that allow the breakers to snap easily into place.
With the new generation of ComPacT molded-case circuit breakers, Schneider Electric further establishes its dedication to helping panel builders deliver correctly installed, state-of-the-art power distribution systems that enhance their reputation
