Power circuit breaker with power management capability available.ABB has launched Emax 2, the low-voltage circuit breaker with integrated energy management functions that monitor power usage and control installed loads. The Ekip Power Controller is available for Emax 2 circuit breakers for any application where control of power usage is needed. It monitors power as it flows through the circuit breaker and manages loads to keep total power use below the limit set by the user, enabling cost savings on electricity by limiting peak power consumption. Emax 2 circuit breakers also include direct communication capabilities for seven of the most popular industrial protocols. Emax 2 provides control, connectivity, safety, and performance, while being easily adaptable to future developments in electrical power technology.
