The GE M-PACT mk1 ACB was sold and installed worldwide until its replacement in the 1980`s.
The GE M-PACT is a mechanical breaker original configured with a dash pot tripping mechanism, later changed to the CTZ electronic tripping relay.
Many GE M-PACT mk1 ACB`s contain Asbestos Flashguards.
The GE M-PACT mk1 breaker was in its time at the forefront of technology and was specified and installed where a high degree of reliability, protection and functionality was required.
With the youngest M-PACT mk1 ACB`s no approaching 30 years of age it is not surprising that major problems are now being encountered over operation, reliability and repair of M-PACT mk1 ACB`s still in service.
The EDS GE M-PACT mk1 retrofit option allows the existing breaker and cassette to be replaced with a Schneider NT/NW ACB.
The replacement breaker and cassette is assembled off site, prior to delivery to site.
Installation can be achieved in around 4 hours
