PITTSBURGH, PA – Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced the availability of the new 4000 amp (A) narrow frame power and air circuit breaker, from the Magnum DS® product line. The 26-inch wide Magnum 4000A narrow breaker allows original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to use smaller enclosures while providing enhanced safety with high-level performance to meet global application requirements.
With both a new compact size and weight, the Magnum 4000A narrow offers a spectrum of innovations and advantages. The new narrow frame is more than eight-inches smaller in width than the current Magnum 4000A frame, and can be applied in 30-inch structures rather than 44-inch structures; thereby reducing the width of the gear by 14 inches. It uses DigitripTM trip unit technology, featuring Zone Selective Interlocking™ and Arcflash Reduction Maintenance SystemTM technology. Further, there are internationally approved factory-installed and field-installable accessories with four auxiliary switches available. The 4000A narrow frame features communications with translators to common protocols, including: INCOMTM, Modbus® and PROFIBUS®.
The Magnum 4000A narrow breaker meets the application needs for Underwriters Laboratories® (UL) 1066 switchgear and switchboard applications and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 60947-2 control and switchgear applications. It is both American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and UL approved.
