New feature for voltage systems

Published:  02 July, 2014

Power management company Eaton reports it has launched a new addition to its proven and successful Capitole 40 low voltage systems range, which is said to provide an even higher level of personal safety and system reliability. The new Capitole 40 MTP is equipped with a Mechanical Test Position (MTP) that allows operators to safely insert or remove the withdrawable units whilst the system is live. All of the functional components are kept safely behind closed doors protecting personnel from the potential hazards of an arc flash.

The Capitole 40 series is Eaton's switchgear and controlgear solution for up to 6,300 A and 690 V. It comes with a full range of fixed, plug-in and withdrawable functional units comprised of feeders, bus couplers, motor starters and distribution feeders. The system has been designed to meet the requirements of the highest international safety standards.
