Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc. to Exhibit 5 kV Vacuum Circuit Breaker at IEEE PES T&D


Warrendale, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/18/2018 -- Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc. will participate in the IEEE PES T&D Conference and Exposition and Conference, April 16-19, 2018 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. The company will exhibit its recently launched 5 kV Vacuum Circuit Breaker, which is designed for use within power distribution substations and various industrial applications.

Key features of the 5 kV Vacuum Circuit Breaker include:

- Next-generation bushing constructed of an outdoor-rated, hydrophobic, cycloaliphatic, epoxy material

The bushing design provides superior weight, tensile strength, UV protection and structural integrity

The bushings are combined with bent terminals for easy connection to live parts

- Compact, NEMA 3x housing capable of fitting within the footprint of existing legacy oil circuit breakers

- Patented modular switchgear assembly built to last the lifetime of the circuit breaker

Designed for reliability over its entire lifecycle with no degradation between required maintenance cycles

Simple plug and play design for easy maintenance

- Ergonomic and compact control panel swings out from the unit and unfolds for easy access and technician safety

"The reliable 5kV circuit breaker, which has a 2-foot by 2-foot physical footprint, has a number of applications," said Linda DeJulio, general manager, Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc., Electrical Distribution Division. "And because it fits within the same footprint, and upon the same concrete pad, compact vault or other constrained space of legacy oil breakers, it can significantly reduce the cost to replace these older oil breakers."

Additional product information on the 5 kV Vacuum Circuit Breaker system is available at Information on other power system product offerings is available in booth 835 at the IEEE PES T&D Conference and Exposition and Conference.
