Schneider Electric announces EasyPact CVS range of circuit breakers
Designed to meet 90% of applications and offer world-class electrical protection performance, quality, and value
Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management, today announced the release of the EasyPact™ CVS range of Class II moulded case circuit breakers (MCCB) for low-voltage applications from 100 to 630 Amps. Designed to meet the requirements of the majority of common protection applications in medium-sized commercial and industrial buildings, the new circuit breakers deliver a level of performance and cost-saving functionality that is unusual in their price range. Adjustable thresholds and a service breaking capacity rated at 100 per cent of the ultimate breaking capacity enhance the reliability and life cycle of the products while reducing servicing costs. Its compact, modular design and field-installable accessories shared with other offer ranges help to simplify ordering, stocking and installation.
Around the globe, construction and upgrade budgets have become much tighter. The new EasyPact CVS range of circuit breakers will help panelbuilders adapt to customers’ budgets while delivering required capabilities and the brand quality of a global leader in energy management and protection,’ said Marcel Hochet, Country president for Schneider Electric Nigeria. ‘The range leverages our expertise in precision design and manufacturing, delivering exceptional value to our customers’.
Schneider Electric has designed the EasyPact CVS range to be simple and safe during installation, operation, and maintenance. The robust circuit breakers are suitable for isolation, guaranteed to the IEC 60947-2 standard, and provide a highly visible and lockable contact position indicator to ensure operator confidence. Extended current limiting and thermal protection can greatly reduce the stresses on equipment due to short circuits and their associated effects. Earth leakage protection can be added by installing a Vigi™ CVS option module. In the event of a circuit fault, simple visual indicators help maintenance personnel quickly locate the tripped breaker and take steps to correct the problem.
To ensure a low total cost of ownership, the EasyPact CVS range features a modular design that adapts to changing needs. Basic accessories and a logical part numbering scheme are shared with the rest of Schneider Electric MCCB family, helping optimize stocking while reducing effort and the potential for ordering errors. Products in the EasyPact CVS range also feature a compact footprint similar to other Schneider Electric MCCB ranges, which can help reduce switchboard dimensions and installation times.
Manufactured from premium materials in ISO 9001 and ISO 14000 certified production plants, the EasyPact CVS range of circuit breakers are fully tested and certified by national, international, and third-party organisations to all relevant safety standards. Reflecting the company’s comprehensive approach to environmental responsibility, the products comply with all environmental standards for manufacturing, including RoHS and REACH, and are engineered for easy disassembly and recycling. The EasyPact CVS range of circuit breakers is available now from Schneider Electric.
