Data Center Switchgear

Eaton Corp. is expanding its line of Magnum DS switchgear engineered to protect, control and monitor low-voltage distribution systems. The Magnum DS switchgear now incorporates the Magnum Narrow 4000 ampere (A) circuit breaker and is designed for customers who require high power density in a limited space. Reducing equipment footprint enables commercial, industrial, institutions and government facilities to condense electrical closet size and reduce total cost of ownership, the company said.

Eaton condensed the Magnum narrow frame power and air circuit breaker into a 30 in. wide switchgear structure to minimize overall space requirements and deliver high-level performance, Eaton said. The reduced size and weight of the compact breaker also make it more manageable for the operator to handle.

The Magnum 4000A breaker uses Digitrip unit technology, incorporating Zone Selective Interlocking and Arcflash Reduction Maintenance System technology. The 4000 A narrow frame allows communications with Modbus and INCOM communications, the company said.
