Protect Equipment From Dangerous Arcs with ABB's Arc Guard System

ABB's new TVOC-2 Arc Guard System protects equipment and personnel from dangerous arcs and prolongs the life-cycle of equipment. The Arc Guard System is a safety device that detects faults in low and medium voltage switchgear, by clearing an arc within an extremely short time. In turn, the system reduces the energy in the arc so that personal injury and equipment damage are kept to a minimum. As legal and regulatory requirements increase, old equipment soon becomes out-of-date. ABB's Arc Guard System helps increase equipment safety and thereby extend its life-cycle.
The Arc Guard System is user-friendly and easy to install. The system is flexible, with mounting options on a DIN-rail or directly on a panel wall on both new installations and old switchgear in need of prolonged life. As your system grows, the Arc Guard System can be easily extended to meet your needs.

Monitor Insulation for Unearthed AC, DC and Mixed AC/DC Systems

ABB's new CM-IWN.5 Insulation Monitoring Relay serves to monitor insulation resistance in unearthed IT AC systems, IT AC systems with galvanically connected DC circuits, or unearthed IT DC systems with a voltage up to 400 V AC and 600 V DC. The measuring range can be extended up to 690 V AC and 1000 V DC by using the coupling unit CM-IVN, and can be configured to your specific application requirements for multifunctional usage. This makes these devices a great solution for providing insulation monitoring for applications with high system leakage capacitance, such as solar applications.

Cut Panel Costs  and Save Installation Time with ABB Miniature Circuit Breakers

ABB Miniature Circuit Breakers offer a compact solution to your circuit protection requirements and saves installation time with the clip-on DIN rail mounting system. The current limiting features of these devices increase circuit protection by significantly reducing the let-through energy and utilizing faster trip times. The S200UDC series of Miniature Circuit Breakers is now available in UL489 DC applications up to 125VDC, including 1-pole and 2-pole devices with K and Z characteristics and rated current from 1A to 63A.
