Product Description


Hager MCB's detect overcurrents due to both overload and fault currents. The MCB will operate and interrupt the supply to prevent damage to the installation.

Hager Domestic MCBs have a short circuit breaking capacity of 6000A (M6). The current carrying capacity of the cable should always exceed the current rating of the MCB to prevent damage.

The operating dolly may be locked in either the ON or OFF position without affecting the ability of the trip mechanism to operate. When in the off position, a contact gap of 4 mm is achieved. Hager's MCBs may therefore be used as single pole isolating switches where appropriate.

The multi pole MCB’s are equipped with a strong terminal design which gives a better grip on the cable. The unique design of the terminal compensates and corrects for any distortion or possibe loss in terminal torque. This true hager innovation prolongs the use and effectiveness of the installation.

The MCB's are equipped with Front Product Labelling for the identification of each circuit. Hager also offers, as a free download, Semiolog software that delivers an easy and professional result.

A more significant limitation capability of short circuit current:

The limitation capability of a MCB is an internal characteristic which makes it possible to open the circuit before the short circuit current reaches its prospective maximum value. A MCB with a better current limitation capability provides several advantages:

*to reduce the thermal effects in the cable i.e increase life span of cables.
*to reduce the mechanical effects and electrodynamics forces on the different contacts.
*to reduce the electromagnetic effects which can be harmful to sensitive equipment / loads.
