RS Components (RS) has added the Acti 9 power distribution system to its inventory of Schneider Electric products. RS is the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc, the world's leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products.
The Acti 9 series is a high performance modular system, comprising of low-voltage devices including circuit breakers, contactors, industrial switches and energy meters.
Designed to provide core protection during maintenance and operation in some of the most demanding networks and environments in building management and panel building applications, the Acti 9 power distribution system employs advanced technologies and features to enable installations to be completed more safely, efficiently, and simply.
The VisiSafe feature guarantees the downstream circuit is always safe, regardless of overvoltage conditions, wear or operator experience. The Class 2 front face on the Acti 9 circuit breaker provides clearance between the breaker surfaces and internal parts, more than double the industry standard.
Designed to optimise efficiency, the VisiTrip feature detects individual faults in the network, allowing fast diagnosis and resolution to minimise downtime, thus ensuring high continuity of service and electrical immunity, particularly important in critical power applications in hospitals and data centres.
The Acti 9 power distribution system simplifies final distribution operations in buildings and industrial facilities, providing a flexible, scalable system able to adapt to new installation standards or building requirements.
Acti 9 miniature circuit breakers comply with IEC/EN 947 IEC/EN 947 and IEC/EN 898. Easy to install and operate with safer cabling due to a double termination connection and up to 50 per cent less wiring, Acti 9 features an ergonomic interface for enhanced readability, while secure connections are enabled via safe IP2-B terminal shutters. A range of tailored accessories is available, including a padlock system, splitter block, and sealable terminal shields.
