Complete power distribution solution

eaton-297-03-2014With the new combination of BreakerVisu software and display, Eaton is offering machine and system builders a cost-efficient and ready-to-use complete solution for modern power distribution. The software system can visualise the data of up to 48 circuit-breakers and measuring devices on a colour display and stores it in log files. The package solution offers a colour display and the pre-installed visualisation and logging software. This eliminates the need by the user for any programming during the installation, and separate displays for individual switches are no longer required. As a self-configuring plug and work system, the solution reduces to a minimum the effort required for installation and commissioning. It also contains new functions: it indicates the wear of the main contacts of the NZM circuit-breakers to the user, can operate as a gateway for central data transfer to a control center and, for the first time, connects third-party systems via Modbus RTU communication.
