What is an Air Frame Circuit Breaker?

Air Frame Circuit Breakers are characterized as a breaker that employs spring operated, stored-energy mechanisms for quick connect/quick disconnect manual or electrical operation to make or break the flow of electricity. Unlike insulated or vacuum type circuit breakers, Air Frames utilize air gaps as an insulation barrier from the disruption of the flow of electricity. Air Frame circuit breakers can be used in various applications that do not warrant protection from outside contaminants such as significant amounts of dust, dirt, metal particles etc.

Coastal Power Systems has the knowledge of upcoming trends such as switching from older “Iron-Clad Switchgear” Air Frame Circuit Breakers to newer more compact “Insulated Case” Air Frame Circuit Breakers. The new industry standard is:

  • Solid State Protection
  • Arc Flash Reduction Capabilities
  • Blue Tooth interaction
  • Metering and Communications
  • Zone Interlocking
  • Compact Frame Size

Let CPS help you make the transition from older equipment to new modern designs and upgraded breakers with our retrofit and retrofill solutions.
