Schneider Electric, the leader in energy management and automation, has launched the Masterpact MTZ1 circuit breaker. The latest addition to the family offers all the connectivity of the Masterpact line in one of its smallest frame sizes yet.
The Masterpact MTZ family made its UK debut in 2016, and continues to be one of Schneider Electric’s smartest ranges of circuit breaker. With industry-first embedded Class 1 metering and improved performance in harsh environments, the MTZ can reduce operating costs and improves the safety of power distribution.
The MTZ1 range extends the scope of Masterpact to industries and applications where space is precious. It offers current ratings from 630 A to 1600 A in AC power systems up to 690 Vac, making it ideal for low-voltage power systems in industrial settings, factories and commercial buildings.
MTZ1 brings added convenience to all stakeholders, from installers to end-users. Its reduced scale leaves more space for other components in a distribution board and cuts down on unnecessary wiring. The range is also compatible with the latest digital modules, offering increased safety and protection, measuring capabilities, and maintenance diagnostics. At the same time, the new range is as customisable as the rest of the family. It can be tailored to almost any application with a wide selection of control units and accessories.
Gary Buckingham, product marketing manager at Schneider Electric, said: ‘In the Internet of Things era, power distribution has never been more important. Power keeps production lines running and companies in business, but it can also pose a danger to end users and contractors if not treated with care. MTZ1 is a future-ready circuit breaker that increases efficiency, evolves with your needs and helps to ensure safety and reliability all in one small package.’
