October 16, 2007 - Mt. Prospect, IL - E-T-A Circuit Breakers is pleased to announce the availability of remote ON/OFF actuation for its award winning 8345 hydraulic-magnetic circuit breaker. The 8345, in combination with this motor driven remote switch module, provides remote ON/OFF and reset functionality as well as overcurrent protection all in one unit. This allows operation of the circuit breaker from any location inthe system, facility or site without sacrificing the ability to manually operate the breaker if required. Service, diagnostics, load shedding and power distribution control functions can now be performed in areas that were previously unattended or inaccessible.
The remote ON/OFF capability is available in all 8345 configurations up to 3 poles and in current ratings from 0.1... 125A per pole (up to 480 VDC or 110 VAC). Synchronization of the actuators through remote switching may take more than one cycle depending on the last remote input status. The addition of an optional auxiliary contract provides remote indication of circuit breaker status.
The remote ON/OFF actuation feature is available in conjunction with the 8345 as an auxiliary part charge. For additional information on the 8345 with remote ON/OFF actuation or any other E-T-A circuit protection devices call 800-462-9979 or click here.
