Molded case circuit breakers added to AutomationDirect product line

MCCBCumming, GA --- August 15, 2004 --- AutomationDirect has introduced a line of Cutler-Hammer’s Molded Case Circuit Breakers (MCCBs) that offers UL489 listed performance for branch circuit overcurrent protection and disconnecting means. The circuit breakers’ small size saves panel space, compared to standard breakers or comparable fusible devices.

The MCCBs use patented contact conductor designs featuring high-speed “blow-open” action that results in superior performance when high level fault currents produce extraordinary electromechanical forces. They also feature advanced arc extinguishing technology, and a toggle handle that provides three positions (on/off/tripped) along with visual indicators.

A line of accessories is also available for the MCCBs. Flex and standard shaft handles are available to make installing and operating the enclosure mounted MCCBs easy. Also available are multi-wire lug kits to save valuable panel space and wiring time by eliminating terminal blocks. Standard accessories, such as auxiliary contacts, shunt trips, and undervoltage releases are offered on all frame sizes. The new line is manufactured in ISO9000 certified facilities. Prices for the new line start at $139.

AutomationDirect sells over 5,000 feature-packed products through its Online Automation Superstore and new 1,600-page catalog. The company offers its customers high-quality automation products, which are often priced at half the industry average, 24-hour order entry and overnight delivery, the best documentation in the industry, and outstanding sales and technical support.
