High current air circuit breakers up to 5000 A complying with UL 489 standard
Masterpact NW & NT UL 489 listed is a range of air circuit breakers designed to protect electrical systems from damage caused by overloads, short circuits and equipment ground faults, and complying with UL 489 requirements. They embed Micrologic control units and contribute to safety and energy efficiency. The solution covers ratings from 800 to 5000 A in two different compact sizes.
The worldwide benchmark for high current circuit breakers in OEM markets
Masterpact NW and Masterpact NT UL 489 listed circuit breakers benefit from the outstanding features of the Masterpact industrial version: Micrologic control unit, electrical switchboard standardization, optimization of volumes and ease of installation.
Micrologic control units offer built-in power and energy metering in addition to basic or advanced protection functions.
Masterpact NT: one single and optimum size, from 800 to 1200 A.
Masterpact NW: two sizes to cover needs from 800 to 5000 A.
The range comes with a wide choice of standardized accessories. The universal design of the Masterpact circuit breaker line allows most accessories to be used across the entire line. It enables standardization of electrical switchboards by providing peace of mind in terms of choice, installation, and operation.
