A system thats open
to any solution.
SACE Emax: the reference standard
in air circuit-breakers
SACE Emax low-voltage ai r ci rcui t-breakers
have been desi gned and manufactured by
ABB SACE L.V. wi th the ai m of sati sfyi ng the
most advanced market requi rements.
Bui ldi ng on the hi ghly-acclai med results
obtai ned by the SACE I somax S seri es of
moulded-case ci rcui t-breakers, thi s new seri es
extends the characteri sti cs of safety, reli abi li ty,

fami ly to hi gh rated current values.
The SACE Emax seri es won the favour of users
on all markets as soon as i t was launched,
provi ng i tself to be the perfect soluti on to the
requi rements of even the most technologi cally
sophi sti cated i nstallati ons.
Thanks to i ts new versi ons and performance
features, combi ned wi th a further-i ncreased
range of accessori es, SACE Emax makes i t
possi ble to anti ci pate the desi gn trends of the
The SACE Emax seri es benefi ts from
ABB SACE L.V.sexperi ence i n the manufacture
of ai r ci rcui t- breakers, whi ch began i n the late
Fi fti eswi th the SACE O tomax seri es- the fi rst

enti rely i n I taly. The seri escompri sed a
swi tchgear range wi th rated currentsof 1250 to
5000 ampsand a maxi mum breaki ng capaci ty
of 100 kA.
The success of thi s fi rst seri es was echoed by
that of the G30 seri es i n the Seventi es, whi ch
was the fi rst to offer electroni c releases
alongsi de tradi ti onal electromagneti c releases.
Thi stakesusto 1979, when ABB SACE L.V.
started manufacturi ng the SACE Novomax
seri es - the fi rst hi gh-performance current-

1989 marked the arri val of the SACE
Megamax, a si gni fi cant step forwards that
i ntroduced PR1 mi croprocessor-based releases
i nstalled on-board the ci rcui t-breakers. Thanks
to thi s i nnovati on, ai r ci rcui t-breakers were
transformed from a si mple component to an

The strengths of the current SACE Emax seri es

uni nterrupted rated currents of from 800 to
6300 amps and breaki ng capaci ti es of up to
150 kA, the seri es i s able to sati sfy the most

i n a vari ety of di fferent ci rcui t-breaker opti ons
that have the same di mensi ons but di fferent

SACE Emax ci rcui t-breakerscan be di vi ded i nto
two mai n categori esof use: selecti ve ci rcui t-

The former make i t possi ble to i mplement
di fferent types of selecti vi ty thanks to hi gh

SACE PR111 and PR112 overcurrent releases.
The di fferent types of selecti vi ty avai lable are:

The growi ng complexi ty of i nstallati ons
together wi th the need for i ncreasi ngly

SACE L.V. to develop uni ts that complete the

parti cularly easy to use i n all condi ti ons, even
when the ci rcui t-breaker i s i nstalled. The Test
