June 12, 2018 — Eaton recently launched the Breaker Integrated Transformer (BIT), a low-voltage, dry-type distribution transformer integrating a traditionally separate moulded case circuit breaker (MCCB) within the same enclosure.

The company says the BIT reduces arc-flash hazard while lowering physical footprint and reducing overall cost for electrical distribution installations.

The BIT includes the features of Eaton’s DOE 2016 low-voltage, dry-type distribution transformer, including UL-verified energy efficiency. Additionally, the product removes the need for separate power distribution components, while reducing floor space-associated installation. Finally, the BIT saves approximately 50% of wall space compared to traditional solutions and is configurable to specific application needs with a range of primary and secondary breaker choices.
