The CX-Series hydraulic/magnetic circuit breaker features a unique and innovative patent pending arc quenching configuration that allows it to safely handle high amperage and high DC voltage applications in a compact package. By using a patent pending magnetic flux boosting terminal configuration, a strong magnetic field is created thus motivating the arc into an enhanced arch chamber improving the breaker’s overall performance and reliability. The permanent magnets located at the entrance of the arc chamber combined with the upper and lower arc runner increase the magnetic blow out force and aid in motivating the arc off of the contacts and into the arc chamber. An enhanced arc chamber features splitter retainers with integrated pressurizing walls, which facilitates heat transfer from the arc thereby providing additional cooling and quick transition into the magnetically induced splitter plates. In turn, the twelve (12) splitter plates attract, segment, and cool the arc for full extinction.
Combined, these features make the CX-Series circuit breaker the best in class, providing stable performance even in the most demanding applications.
The CX-Series circuit breaker is ideal for integration into photovoltaic renewable energy systems. It can be designed into the system’s combiner box or main disconnect. The CX-Series is also ideal for integration into Information Technologies’ power distribution equipment utilizing high DC voltage input.
