Direct Replacement Breakers

Circuit breaker technologies allow large electrical users to exchange older, often obsolete equipment for upgraded replacements without disrupting existing switchgear. Most replacement breakers are designed to fit into the existing switchgear cell with little to no modification and will interface with the existing switchgear structure and maintain safety interlocks inherent in the original design.

Benefits of replacing circuit breakers typically include:

  • Enhanced electrical system reliability
  • Less cost and downtime compared to new equipment installation
  • Reduced maintenance and operating costs
  • No need for obsolete or hard-to-find spare parts
  • Various digital trip devices for short circuit and overload protection
  • Extended range of short circuit and continuous current capabilities
  • Increased safety by adding ground fault protection
  • Through-door racking and trip unit display
  • Increased safety by replacing with arc flash limiting breakers
