Courtesy: Schneider ElectricSchneider Electric introduced seven new low-voltage (LV) direct replacement breaker solutions for the complete DS circuit breaker product line for SquareD, Cutler-Hammer, and Westinghouse switchgear. The factory-tested and IEEE C37.59-compliant LV solutions include fully loaded direct replacement breakers for all switchgear using the DS/DSII 632 breaker, rated up to 85kA, as well as fused DSL & DSLII breakers rated up to 200 kA/1600 A. The replacement breakers are designed to fit into the existing electrical cubicle, increasing installation efficiency by requiring little to no modification to the switchgear cell and reducing overall downtime. The LV direct replacement circuit breakers provide a flexible solution for customers by enabling them to maintain their familiar DS breaker technology while eliminating the need to pay the premiums associated with purchasing newer models.
