Circuit Breaker Retrofits
The overload tripping devices on low voltage breakers are replaced with modern state of the art trip units. In many cases a ground fault anywhere on a 480 volt system will cause the main circuit breaker to trip since ground fault is only required there. Our trip units come with LT, ST, Inst, and GF standard so ground faults are cleared at the feeder breaker level instead of at the main breaker. In addition, modern trip units have communication options so remote monitoring of load and tripping is possible.
