Molded Case Circuit Breakers


Features Spectra RMS Molded Case Circuit Breakers SE150, SF250, SG600, and SK1200 circuit breaker frames have a digital, solid-state, rms sensing trip system with field installable, front-mounted rating plugs to establish or change the breaker ampere rating. Adjustable instantaneous with tracking short-time is standard on all frames including SE150. The trip system uses digital sampling to determine the rms value of sinusoidal and nonsinusoidal currents. microEntelliGuard Trip Units Spectra SG600 and SK1200 breakers are now available with microEntelliGuard trip units - the newest and most advanced trip unit available in the Spectra line of molded case circuit breakers. Based on the EntelliGuard TU trip unit platform, the microEntelliGuard trip unit has the same HMI interface and incorporates the advanced features and protective functions for improved system protection, coordination, selectivity, performance, and diagnostic capabilities. New features offered with the microEntelliGuard trip unit include enhanced time-current curve shaping capability, ground fault alarm, direct Modbus communications, reduced energy let-through setting, zone selective interlock, neutral protection, waveform capture, and programmable output contacts. The microEntelliGuard trip unit utilizes the same power management accessories offered for the Spectra MicroVersaTrip with the addition of a new advanced junction box and interconnect cables. The breakers have the same footprint and interrupt ratings as their SG/SK counterparts and are backwards compatible with existing equipment and installations. The microEntelliGuard trip unit uses the same universal rating plugs and test kit offered for the EntelliGuard TU trip unit. With the introduction of the microEntelliGuard trip unit, Spectra breakers with MicroVersaTrip Plus and PM trip units will transition to legacy status in 2011 and have limited availability.

Spectra SG600 and SK1200 breakers with microEntelliGuard Trip Units

MicroVersaTrip PM Trip Unit The MicroVersaTrip PM trip unit adds power management system capability, advanced metering, and protective relays to the basic functions of the MicroVersaTrip Plus trip unit. The MicroVersaTrip PM trip unit communicates directly on the GE POWER LEADER communication bus. A complete circuit breaker consists of a UL listed circuit breaker frame and a rating plug (UL listed interchangeable trip unit). Terminal lugs for cable connection are available if required.

MicroVersaTrip Plus Trip Units or MicroVersaTrip PM Trip Units All frames use the same UL listed, field-installable internal SG600 and SK1200 are optionally available with either accessories (auxiliary switch, shunt trip, undervoltage release MicroVersaTrip Plus or MicroVersaTrip PM trip units which offer and bell alarm). expanded functionality in the same space-saving size of standard All frame sizes have maximum UL listed interrupting ratings of Spectra RMS breakers. The trip system uses digital sampling to 200 kA @ 240 Vac and 100 kA @ 480 Vac with 600 Vac ratings determine the rms value of sinusoidal and nonsinusoidal currents. to 65 kA depending on frame size. UL listed current limiting versions are provided through the SG600 frame for the 65 kA MicroVersaTrip Plus Trip Units @ 480 Vac and the 100 kA @ 480 Vac models, with no increase MicroVersaTrip Plus trip units utilize a digital, LCD display with a in physical frame size. four-button keypad to provide local set-up and readout of trip Spectra RMS Mag-Break instantaneous-only motor circuit prosettings.

Molded Case Circuit Breakers

Section 3

Record Plus Molded Case Circuit Breakers Record Plus represents the very latest in molded case circuit breaker design. Utilizing design features such as double-break rotary contact structures and advanced ablative materials to enhance interruption, Record Plus is capable of interrupting ratings up to 200kA. High kAIC ratings, selective coordination, reduced arc flash energy, and current limitation embody the core design principles of Record Plus. FC 100 and FB 100 circuit breakers are supplied with factory installed non-user interchangeable thermal-magnetic trip units and can be supplied with or without lugs. FB breakers are available in 1-, 2- and 3-pole versions. FC is available in 2- and 3-pole versions, both in a 3-pole footprint. FG600 circuit breakers are supplied equipped with factory installed non-user interchangeable electronic trip units that feature the use of front accessible, user installed rating plugs to establish or change the breakers amp rating. Rating plugs are user specified and ordered under separate product number. Instantaneous pickup levels are adjustable and set via a frontmounted adjusting knob. FG is available in 2- and 3-pole versions, both in a 3-pole footprint. Record Plus product numbers ending in R or R0 do not include lugs. An R1 suffix indicates that the breaker is supplied with line and load lugs, R2 indicates load lugs, and R3 indicates line lugs. RV suffixed product numbers include load lugs and line connections specifically designed for General Electric type AD panels. All frames use common internal accessories (auxiliary switches, UV releases, shunt trips, and bell alarms) UL listed for field installation. UL listed maximum short circuit ratings at 480VAC are 150kA for the 100A frames and 200kA for the 600A frames. Unless noted otherwise, all circuit breakers and accessories are listed in UL file number E11592.

Other MCCB Features UL489 Listed Broad product line to meet virtually any application need. Reduced downtime. A tripped breaker is easily spotted and can be immediately reset after the fault has been corrected. Eliminates single phasing. A common trip bar disconnects all poles simultaneously on both overloads and short circuits. Offers application flexibility through the use of a wide variety of accessory devices and special attachments. Repetitive operationno fuses to replace. Breakers can be repetitively tested. Fuses must be destroyed to confirm calibration accuracy. For more information on these products, order publications listed in Sections 21 and 22.
