Production of the George Ellison ABDO and GEA ACB`s ceased in the early 1970`s. No original spares or manufacturers support exist for either the ABDO or GEA ACB. Both the GEA and ABDO do not achieve the current regulatory disconnection times, even if regularly serviced or overhauled.
The only way to achieve these protection levels is to fit new ACB breakers into a system whether retrofit or within a new panel.
We offer a retrofit solution allowing replacement of GEA and ABDO ACB`s into your existing distribution panel.
The EDS Retrofit Option incorporates Schneider NT/NW ACB`s or the Mitsubishi AE-SW ACB
Using the latest computer aided design technology we have achieved this goal with a specifically designed and engineered new chassis and breaker assembly. The chassis and breaker are assembled pre-wired and tested, prior to delivery to site. Allowing for removal of existing breaker, on-site installation is achieved in under an hour.
