Ensure Safety and Protection with the all-new STADx MCB by Havells
“The MCB has tripped.” We all have heard this statement many a times or at least once in our lives. Probably many of us know that MCB is something found in the distribution boards, but don’t know exactly what it is used for. Before answering your question, you must first understand – what is an MCB? An MCB stands for Miniature Circuit Breaker. These are essentially small devices used to control and protect the electrical panel, related devices, cables and most importantly the people against overload currents and short circuits.
Havells, a leading brand for electrical goods, offers a vast range of switchgear which includes MCBs as well. Their latest offering, STADx MCB is the all new Miniature Circuit Breaker that can contribute significantly in providing operational ease and convenience in hotels, office premises and residential buildings with its versatile features and functions. With multifunctional capabilities, the advanced version of Havells STADx offers real-time monitoring status and facilitates hands-on maintenance of the device.
The STADx is a technologically advanced range having miniature circuit breakers (MCB), residual current circuit breakers (RCCB) and distribution boards (DB) which provide multiple functionalities like circuit indicator and positive contact indication. Based on communication ready platform, the STADx switchgear range is introduced to address the needs of consumers for smart solutions. As expected, the latest switchgear STADx offer enhanced performance in order to meet the operational challenges with smart monitoring and user-friendly features. Through advanced programming of load cycle and efficient energy management, the range aims to minimise energy wastage and improve sustainability.
Talking specifically about the MCBs, they are used to maintain and ensure safety and quality of the energy provided. They are normally resettable, close protection and capable of handling multiple operations without failure. Available in the rating of 0.5 A to 63 A, the STADx MCBs are suitable for protection against overload & short circuit for motor and other inductive loads. These are made adhering to all the safety norms and specifications under IS/IEC 60898-1.
As far as their features are concerned, Havells MCBs feature an inscription window to ensure circuit identification, thus, reducing maintenance downtime. To avoid improper cable termination, the circuit breakers have safety terminals which guide the cable towards the cage terminal for systematic termination. The STADx MCBs have large cable terminals which are compatible with copper and aluminium cables upto 35 sq mm cross section area. Each MCB is provided with a dual position DIN rail clip, which makes it easier to change a device from a device bank connected to a bus-bar, without disturbing the existing wiring. It also clearly indicates contact position through Flag Indication (Red-ON, Green-OFF) to ensure enhanced safety.
The STADx MCB by Havells comes in a moulded case and covered with flame-retardant thermoplastic material. They can be installed both vertically and horizontally. Thus, you can install them easily as your space allows. Loaded with all the safety and performance-driven features, the STADx MCBs are the smart devices for smart generation.
