Eaton's 310+ Mining Molded Case Circuit Breaker (MCCB) series is built for harsh mining environments and provide trailing cable-specific settings and configurations to cover trailing cable sizes with just three trip units to minimize panel design time. CoEaton’s 310+ Mining Molded Case Circuit Breaker (MCCB) series is designed to maximize equipment reliability, enhance personnel safety and improve uptime in mining applications. The breakers are engineered for maintenance safety, featuring integrated arc flash protection and Eaton Electronic 310+ trip units, which is designed to clear faults. The 310+ Mining MCCBs are built for harsh mining environments and provide trailing cable-specific settings and configurations to cover trailing cable sizes with just three trip units to minimize panel design time and reduce inventory requirements. The circuit breaker trip units are interchangeable between 600 V and 1000 V frames. Features include adjustable curve shaping, arc flash reduction, diagnostics, and system monitoring and communications. Additionally, fault information can be captured to provide trip cause indication, and a larger dial with a hard stop provides easier access without the risk of 360-deg rotation.
