Things frequently get hot for distribution circuit breakers in a radio base station. Telecom cabinets can be exposed to strong sunlight and are filled with technical devices that also generate heat. In addition, the stations are often located in inaccessible places with the additional problem of limited space.
Emcomp specialises in Telecom circuit protection. We provide hydraulic-magnetic circuit breakers that meet and even exceed the requirements set by the telecom industry. Our circuit breakers are supplied globally and come with several advantages thanks to the hydraulic-magnetic design. A design that makes for circuit breakers with maximum reliability that need no maintenance or service. Another advantage is better protection of the circuit and more precise breaking.
Exceptionally high MTTF and MTBF
The telecom industry uses the terms MTTF (Mean Time To Failure) and MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures). Our hydraulic-magnetic circuit breakers have MTTF and MTBF values of thousands of years. Long life and high reliability are what characterises Emcomp's circuit breakers.
Emcomp's hydraulic-magnetic circuit breakers have an international approval profile. This makes for more convenient circuit protection solutions and a smaller spare-parts stock, since the same circuit breakers are used, irrespective of whether the application is going to North America, Germany or China. Naturally, most of Emcomp's circuit breakers carry the telecom industry's approval, UL 489A.
Limited space for electric installations and circuit protection
In telecom installations, space is frequently limited and you need the most compact components. The hydraulic-magnetic technology enables thinner circuit breakers, 13mm instead of 18mm for thermal breakers, which means that more breakers can be accommodated in a smaller space.
Eco-smart technology that reduces CO2 emissions
Thanks to low internal resistance, the hydraulic-magnetic technology helps reduce energy consumption. This is an important competitive advantage for both Emcomp and our telecom customers, who value energy-smart solutions.
Emcomp's circuit protection solutions for telecom applications were developed by CBI in South-Africa. The circuit breakers comply with numerous international standards, e.g. IEC/EN/VDE (Europe), UL (America) and CCC (China). They are available in standard designs as well as customized according to customer specific requirements.
