EC: Low Profile Compact Circuit Protector

Power - Energy, power protection: Eaton's Bussmann series Low Profile Compact Circuit Protector (CCPLP) is the industry's most compact UL 98 fused disconnect switch with features designed to help customers achieve critical reliability and support advanced power distribution architecture. This is a Control Engineering 2016 Engineers’ Choice Honorable Mention.


Low Profile Compact Circuit Protector, EatonDesigned to streamline panel installation and simplify selective coordination requirements in mission-critical environments, the new Eaton Bussmann series Low Profile Compact Circuit Protector (CCPLP) provides expansive features in the industry’s smallest fusible switch footprint to benefit designers, maintainers and owners of modern mission-critical environments by enhancing efficiency, reliability and safety.

The CCPLP fused disconnect switch is available in one-, two- and three-pole configurations for Class CC, 20A Class G, midget and IEC 10x38 fuses—with a unique panel mounting design that allows easy integration into many panel designs and provides a high short circuit current rating (SCCR) alternative to low profile circuit breakers.

The Class G and CC CCPLP versions are easy to selectively coordinated with upstream CUBEFuses using published fuse ampacity ratio tables. All CCPLP designs also accept branch circuit rated fuses that are current limiting and up to a 200 kA interrupting rating. Additionally, all models are designed for global applications and offer alternating current voltage ratings up to 600 V.

To support application flexibility, mounting and panel layout dimensions match common low-profile circuit breakers, providing an easy, alternative fused circuit protection solution. Additionally, all versions are disconnect rated to provide means for load isolation while Class CC, 20 A Class G, and IEC 10x38 versions are suitable for both branch circuit disconnect and branch circuit protection.

To enhance safety, the fused disconnect switches are IP20 rated and meet International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) finger-safe requirements for panel mount installations. Further, a built-in switch handle interlocks the fuse access to help prevent removing the fuse under load, and the use of a pin-out device provides a lockout/tagout means for enhanced safety.
