Retrofit Circuit Breakers

CPS sets the standard for retrofit and retrofill circuit breakers

When it comes to retrofit and retrofill circuit breakers Coastal Power Systems has set the industry standard. For the past two decades CPS has worked with companies large and small to offer a retrofits and retrofills based on customer's needs. Our retrofit and retrofill product offerings always revolve around quality, durability, and short downtime durations.

CPS has worked alongside major manufacturers and provided technical sales and installation for many of their retrofit and retrofill products. We also design and mass produce many lines of our own custom retrofits and retrofills including obsoleted major brands of circuit breakers, contactors and switches.

RETROFIT/RETROFILL is the implementation of modern components (primary switching devices and digital protection/control technology) in the existing installation.

The benefits to doing a retrofit or a retrofill are:

  • Cheaper than a complete replacement
  • Short implementation time for replacement
  • Minimum shutdown of the switchboard
  • Remaining service life extension
  • Improved operator protection
  • Minimization of further maintenance costs
  • Warranty on the conversion work
  • Spare parts availability

The Difference between a RETROFIT and a RETROFILL has to do with how the new components are installed.

A RETROFIT is a means where the new components are introduced without old components modification. An example of this would be removing an old circuit breaker from a cubical and being able to directly install a new RETROFIT circuit breaker without any cubical modifications.

Whereas, a RETROFILL is when both new and old components must be modified to work together. For example a RETROFILL circuit breaker would require a technician modifying/installing a new cubical in order to install a new circuit breaker.

Retrofit Benefits Include:

  • Rack-In/Rack-Out or Unbolt/Bolt-In Installation
  • Downtime can be reduced to minutes
  • Can be utilized as a spare in multiple Cubicles/Sub-Structures
