Total discrimination as a standard feature
With the Compact system, electrical installations achieve a high level of discrimination. For Compact NS circuit breakers, total discrimination is a standard feature. When a fault occurs, only the circuit breaker located immediately upstream of the fault is tripped. The other circuits are not affected and continue to supply power.

Micrologic control units for Compact NS630b to NS3200 … More intelligent trip units
b trip units have been replaced by circuit breaker control units, offering new measurement and protection functions. They accurately measure system parameters, instantly calculate values, sort data, signal alarms, communicate, take action, etc. The new Compact ranges, equipped with Micrologic control units, constitute both an extremely reliable protective device and an accurate measurement instrument.

Exceptional limitation
limited peak current

With reflex tripping, the energy developed by the short-circuit current is limited to very low values. This greatly diminishes the stresses to which the installations is exposed.
