Low voltage circuit breaker replacements

Eaton’s low voltage air replacement circuit breakers are not retrofitted or remanufactured, but built brand new from the ground up to improve system reliability and provide technology upgrades, with no parts reused from original breakers. The solution offers a better approach for reducing maintenance, repair, and operating and downtime costs.

LV air replacement circuit breakers

Eaton’s air replacement circuit breaker replacements are designed to be electrical and mechanical equivalents of the power circuit breakers they replace, solving parts availability problems and reducing maintenance costs and downtime.

Advantages of Eaton's low voltage air cicruit breaker replacements:

  • Meets or exceeds IEEE/ANSI standards
  • Downtime reduced since no parts are reused from original breaker
  • Reduces normal maintenance to 2-6 hours per breaker
  • Common components utilized across product line, reducing spare parts inventory
  • Renewal parts stocked for circuit breakers currenly in production, eliminating parts availability issues
  • Short circuit interrupting upgrades available with bus bracing analysis
  • Optional Arcflash Reduction Maintenance SystemTM feature can be integrated to provide protection for downstream loads during maintenance and arc flash reduction
  • Replacement breakers available for multiple generations of Westinghouse, Allis -Chalmers, Federal Pacific, General Electric and ITE

LV breaker to vacuum starter replacements

Electric utility generation and process industries often apply circuit breakers as motor starters even though they are not intended for these applications. A better approach is Eaton’s LV breaker-to-vacuum motor starter replacement, which uses state-of-the-art vacuum contactors that have a long life and are resistant to environmental contaminants.

Specifically designed to replace breakers used as motor starters, the LV-VSR’s advantages include:

  • Tested to IEEE/ANSI standards
  • Passive and active interlocking
  • May be applied up to 600 VAC and 425 A continuous
  • Motor protection provided through Eaton's self-powered C440 Electronic Overload Relay, which provides selectable thermal overload protection, phase loss and ground fault
  • Designs available to replace select models of Westinghouse, GE and ITE circuit breakers

Remote power racking system (RPR-2)

Eaton’s RPR-2, enables remote racking of circuit breakers from leading manufacturers that can be inserted or removed using the rotation of a shaft. Operators may remain 25 feet or more away from the switchgear door during the racking process, which is outside of the arc flash protection boundary.
