                    Will the Compact NSX breaker be for sale in the USA or Canada?

                    Issue:
                    Where can I buy a Compact NSX breaker?

                    Product Line:
                    Circuit Breakers

                    Cause:
                    This breaker is popular overseas and there is interest in the US

                    Resolution:
                    There are no plans for a general release of the Compact NSX breaker line in North America, since the NSX is not UL Listed to UL489. (UL 489 is the standard commonly required in the US.) In the US, the Powerpact Circuit Breakers should be used (Powerpact breakers are UL, CSA and IEC-rated).

                    If an existing piece of equipment has an NSX breaker which needs replacing, we have made a few catalog numbers available for sale in the US. The list of numbers will vary based upon need. Contact your local authorized Schneider Electric distributor for assistance on your specific NSX catalog number.

                    For support on these breakers, Please see the following link to Global Operations where you can select other Countries:

                    LV429210 - Is Vigi block MH type for NSX100/160 (200 to 440 V)

                    LV431535 - Is Vigi block MH type for NSX250 (200 to 440 V)

                    Even though Tech datasheet specifies the LV429210 is rated for NSX upto 250, It is recommeded to use the VIgi module only for NSX 100/160. 

                    However, LV431535 can be used for NSX100/160/250. 

                     

                    How to Connect the NW/NT Circuit breaker in the Modbus Network

                    The Micrologic of the NW/NT Circuit breaker has only ULP communication. So you require a Modbus or Ethernet Interface to put the NW/NT Circuit breaker in the Modbus/Ethernet Network.

                    What is the IFE Module (LV434001)?

                    Product Line:
                    Smart Systems

                    Resolution:
                    The Interface Ethernet (IFE) Module allows you to view and streamline data from your Low Voltage Electrical Equipment assets and allows the display of status and energy data, and alarm notification from each circuit breaker via TCP/ IP connectivity.  The embedded web pages within the IFE module allow this data to be viewed on a Web browser with a simple Ethernet connection. Optional breaker on/off control is available through the Web interface.
                    • The IFE uses ULP (Universal Logic Plug – Data Protocol) data directly from Micrologic Trip Units and converts the data to Modbus TCP/IP.

                    What solution does Schneider Electric offer for arc-flash incident energy mitigation?

                    Issue:
                    Arc Flash mitigation

                    Product Line:
                    Masterpact and Powerpact P and R

                    Resolution:
                    Prior to October 2015, the AMS system was used.  Refer to FAQ FA176050 for more information on this option.
                    Since October 2015, the Energy Reduction Maintenance Setting (ERMS) System has been the preferred method of reducing arc-flash incident energy.

                    The ERMS switch can be turned “ON” to reduce circuit breaker tripping time. This sets the instantaneous pickup to a pre-programmed value.
                    Default if not programmed = 2 x In. 
                    Basic components are:
                    1. A Masterpact or Powerpact circuit breaker with a Micrologic P or H trip unit with a blue label on the upper right corner with the letters ERMS
                    2. An I/O Module (Input/Output Programmable Module) LV434063
                    3. A switch, ULP cable, power supply
