Schneider offers Masterpact circuit breaker to replace existing DS-type


May 23, 2014 – Schneider Electric has announced the Masterpact circuit breaker as a direct replacement modernization solution for customers with an installed base of DS-type circuit breakers.

“Upgrading with Masterpact Circuit Breakers not only provides the latest in circuit breaker technology, but enables facility managers to improve energy management while enhancing safety, productivity and electrical system reliability,” says the company, adding that the Masterpact lowers maintenance and operating expenses. Designed to fit into existing switchgear, the solution features an adapter cradle, which is permanently installed into the existing switchgear cubicle that housed the DS-type circuit breaker. A new door is installed, but the cell interlocks, the racking mechanism and the switchgear structure are not modified.
