Class 1 Reconditioning

Eaton’s Class 1 Reconditioning process helps enhance coordination, improve system reliability, and increase the life of medium and low voltage power circuit breakers. The reconditioning and rebuild process includes:

  • Inspection, documentation, disassembly per our procedure*, careful cleaning, reassembly, testing to manufacturer and IEEE standards, and ongoing tracking in POW-R-Master database (*where disassembly is not practical, replace component with new or reconditioned)
  • Optional installation of Digitrip RMS trip unit retrofit kit that restores breaker to full capacity with longer life and state-of-the-art new trip unit
  • Mechanical and electrical operations performed per original manufacturer’s information, IEEE standards, and Class 1 specification
  • Reconditioning at one of five established regional Power Breaker Reconditioning Centers, each of which strictly adheres to nationally recognized standards and quality processes.

Factory Authorized Mechanism Enhancement (FAME)

Increase the life of Eaton’s medium-voltage VCP-W vacuum circuit breakers and MV-VR circuit breakers with the FAME upgrade, while also significantly reducing costs and ongoing maintenance requirements.

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.
