Eaton debuts low-voltage Breaker Integrated Transformer
September 25, 2017 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Sep. 25, 2017 – Power management company Eaton has launched its breaker integrated transformer (BIT), a low-voltage, dry-type distribution transformer integrating a traditionally separate molded case circuit breaker (MCCB) within the same enclosure.
Arriving factory assembled, BIT promises to reduce arc-flash hazard while lowering physical footprint and reducing overall cost for electrical distribution installations. The BIT includes all the features of Eaton’s DOE 2016 low-voltage, dry-type distribution transformer, including UL-verified energy efficiency. According to Eaton, the integrated design of the BIT saves approximately 50 per cent or more wall space compared to traditional, separately-installed solutions to help end-users maximize available physical installation footprint.
