Molded Case Circuit Breakers

What defines a Molded Case Circuit Breaker?

Molded Case 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 air or vacuum type, molded case circuit breakers utilize insulation as a barrier to the disruption of the flow of electricity. Molded Case circuit breakers can be used in various applications that include small compact areas, switchboards, motor control center buckets and various other locations.

For all new and reconditioned molded case circuit breakers, Coastal Power Systems will provide a test report. Each breaker will undergo CPS’ Primary Injection Testing, Function Testing of all devices, and Visual/Quality Inspection. Every Molded Case Circuit Breaker leaves our facility with a minimum 12 Month Warranty and Power DB generated Test Reports. Electronic copies of these reports will be available upon request.
