Low voltage breakers

Located inside near your dry-type transformer, low voltage breakers protect against surges and faults as electricity is distributed throughout your facility. They are rated to a predetermined specification (typically 600 V or lower) and will “trip” when that voltage is met, disrupting the flow of power. 

Failure modes
•    Mechanical faults
•    Seizing up
•    Overheating
•    “End of life” failure

 

Reliability considerations 
•    IR scanning (via IR windows)
•    Visual inspections
•    Mechanical inspections
•    Alignment tests
•    Lubrication best practices
