Switchgear for Low-voltage Distribution
Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corp. is expanding its line of Magnum DS switchgear engineered to protect, control and monitor low-voltage distribution systems. The Magnum DS switchgear incorporates the Magnum Narrow 4000 ampere (A) circuit breaker and is designed for customers who require high-power density in a limited space. Reducing equipment footprint enables commercial, industrial, institutions and government facilities to condense electrical closet size and reduce total cost of ownership. Eaton condensed the Magnum narrow frame power and air circuit breaker into a 30-inch-wide switchgear structure to minimize overall space requirements and deliver high-level performance. The reduced size and weight of the compact breaker also make it more manageable for operators to handle. The Magnum DS switchgear meets UL 1558 and 891 standards for alternating current systems up to 600 volts. Magnum DS switchgear is also tested to American National Standards Institute (ANSI) C126.96.36.199 and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 60947-2 standards. The Magnum 4000A breaker uses Digitrip unit technology featuring Zone Selective Interlocking and Arcflash Reduction Maintenance System technology. The 4000A narrow frame features communications with Modbus and INCOMT communications.
