January 14, 2015 – To aid in product authentication, Eaton will be featuring laser-etched labels on its moulded-case circuit breakers (MCCBs).

The new laser-etched labels are currently in production for Series C breakers, and will be rolled out to all F-frame MCCBs, with plans to expand to additional industrial circuit breakers. Information etched directly onto the circuit breaker includes ratings, specs and product information. With the label, customers can authenticate the breaker using Eaton’s Circuit Breaker Authentication (CBA) tool, designed to help them determine whether Eaton’s MCCBs (up to 400A) are counterfeit.
