Air circuit breakers for power control

July 18th, 2013, Published in Articles: Vector

ABB has launched the Emax 2 air circuit breaker. Its Ekip brand of trip units and accessories perfectly blend control, connectivity, performance, ease-of-use and safety to meet the needs of any low voltage application. The company uses a patented algorithm to determine the average absorbed power over a period of time, which controls a load list to maintain the maximum power limit specified by the user. The elimination of instantaneous based measurements and the ability to synchronise with utility measurement devices creates an efficient environment that saves on electricity bills without the need for additional monitoring systems. The Ekip Link system and Ekip Control Panel enable local monitoring of circuit breakers and switchgear functions in an individual switchboard.
