ABB India has announced Formula DIN-Rail, a complete range of Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCBs), Residual Current Circuit Breakers (RCCBs) and Isolators for the retail market which is estimated to be worth 250 million USD in India.
“The ABB Formula DIN-Rail portfolio with its contemporary design provides optimum protection to electrical circuits from possible damages caused by overload, short circuits, and earth leakages in buildings. The MCBs are available with a seven year warranty, which is a first in the Indian electrical market. This range meets international standards and is manufactured in ABB’s Smart Buildings factory located in Bengaluru, with a production capacity of 12 million pole of MCBs per year,” sates ABB release.
“The portfolio comes with a lowest watt loss and space for better air circulation, as well as clear ON/OFF indications printed on all the products for ease of use,” adds the release.
The ABB Formula DIN-Rail portfolio fits on different pole configurations, includes B/C tripping characteristics (MCBs), various leakage sensitivities (RCCBs) and Isolation (Isolators) up to 63 A for residential and similar applications. The SW200 M MCBs, which are part of this range, prevents overload of the electrical circuit by tripping before the cable is damaged. In addition to catering to the common MCB requirements, these products can also be installed in any residential or similar environment, making them flexible and reliable for the end user.
The circuit breakers are ISI approved. Protection ranges from 6-63 Ampere in B & C Curve. The products are standardized IEC60898 International and come with IS 60898-1 Indian certification. The FW200 RCCBs in this range ensure safety of people and installations from earth leakage current, in a systematic and calculated way. This device works on continuous calculations of the system line currents to detect the flow of current to earth, thereby preventing accidental electric shock by direct or indirect contact, as well as protecting installations against the risk of fire. It is also approved by international standards IEC 61008-1 and IS 12640-1(2016).
