The E2VAC Mining Circuit Breaker is a low-voltage, vacuum-based breaker solution with monitoring and integral remote racking. It is designed to improve reliability, productivity, and worker safety in power centers and other panel applications in underground mining and metals operations. The vacuum contactor technology reduces the risk of energy released during an arc event. The new breaker is available as a fixed drawer assembly or with integral remote racking capability that allows the breaker to be racked in and out from service at a safe distance. The breaker also features the EDR-5000 relay with advanced monitoring capabilities.
