‘It’s All About Time’: New Video from Eaton Demonstrates 9x Faster Metering Installation in new MCCB Panelboards
Eaton’s Memshield 3 MCCB panelboards have set new standards for versatility and for fast, convenient installation by offering these easy-to-fit plug-and-play metering facilities, as well as offering provision for incorporating surge and lightning protection, the ability to accommodate four-pole incoming devices with optional earth-leakage protection, and enhanced mechanical construction.
Instead of having to make up to 42 individual connections to wire an energy meter – a task that typically takes around 90 minutes and is error prone because of the large number of connections – users of the new panelboards only need make a few simple plug-in connections. The risk of errors is eliminated, and a meter is easily wired in less than 10 minutes and up to nine times faster.
The panelboards can be supplied in versions that accommodate incoming devices rated up to 800 A and outgoing devices rated from 16 A to 400 A. They are available with 6 and 12 outgoing ways in all ratings, with selected ratings also available in 18 way versions. At the low-current end of the range, 250 A incomer boards are additionally offered in 4- and 8-way versions that provide convenient and cost-effective solutions for small installations. All models meet the requirements of IEC 61439-2, with Form 3b, Type 2 separation.
