Air Circuit Breakers (ACBs) are commonly used in low voltage switchboards and due to their typically passive operation, are often forgotten about until there is a trip or circuit breaker failure leading to a power supply disruption.

The consequence of ACB failure can be financially costly and potentially dangerous to personnel.

To help address this issue, NHP provide ‘retro-fit kit’ solutions which allow end users to modernise their ACBs with minimal downtime.

Retrofitting of ACBs offers increased cost savings compared with the replacement of an entire switchboard as the key components of the system can be quickly replaced, leaving the existing copperwork and steelwork intact.

The NHP retrofit solution has been designed according to Australian standards and recognised industrial practices, ensuring the controlled removal of ACBs that are obsolete and potentially dangerous.

With retrofit and upgrade options available for most brands and models of ACB, NHP can work within your existing switchboard environment to provide a cost effective solution.
