The AC-PRO® Trip unit is a solid state, true RMS sensing overcurrent device for use on 600 volt class circuit breakers. The AC-PRO® comes standard with Long-Time, Short-Time, Instantaneous, Ground Fault, and Phase Unbalance protections. Each of these protective features can be turned on or off at any time except for the Long-Time setting. The units do not use ratings plugs and have a programmable CT rating. These features allow one unit to be used in a wide variety of different breakers. This simplifies the use, standardization, maintenance, training and spares situation throughout a facility.
When the AC-PRO® is in service it will display continuous 3-phase current monitoring on the LCD. When the current exceeds the Long-Time pickup value the LCD will display OVERLOAD and list the phase and current, the red PICKUP LED will also illuminate.
The green "SELF TEST OK" LED on the front of the unit indicates that the AC-PRO® is functioning properly. When the LED is illuminated it indicates that the software routines and microcontroller are functioning properly and the actuator is connected.
During normal operation the AC-PRO® is powered by breaker mounted CT’s and will power up at 10% of the CT rating. When there is no CT power the AC-PRO® can be powered by the PT Module, an auxiliary power pack or the internal battery. The internal battery is a 9 volt lithium type battery that is only used to power the display for reviewing trip data or commissioning the unit when there is no other power supply.
The battery is not used for any of the protective features or to save any of the information on the unit.
The AC-PRO® can be supplied as part of a complete retrofit kit. The kits include everything you would need to completely retrofit a breaker (brackets, mounting hardware, wiring, actuators, CT’s, installation documentation and instruction manuals).
All AC-PRO®’s are covered by a 2 year limited warranty
The following options and accessories are available for the AC-PRO®.
- QT Display remote access unit
- Modbus communications option with voltage monitoring
- Secondary injection test set
- 50Hz, 40Hz and 25Hz units are available
- 1 amp and ½ amp units are available
The AC-PRO® also has theQUICK-TRIP®arc flash reduction system available.
The QUICK-TRIP® system helps reduce the arc flash hazard on downstream equipment for times when personal must work on energized equipment. The QUICK-TRIP® system can be turned on and off without opening the cubicle door and features:
- QT-Instantaneous setting
- QT-Ground Fault setting
- Door mounted switch with lockable cover or KIRK Key switch
- Door mounted QT-DISPLAY with LCD display
UL and CE Certification
To ensure that the AC-PRO® will function when needed it was tested to the ANSI C.37.59 Standards for fault interruption. As a result of this testing the AC-PRO® is UL listed on the following breakers.
|Manufacturer||Breaker Model||Breaker Rating|
|ITE||KB Steel Back||600A|
|Schneider Electric||Series H-3||800A to 4000A|
The AC-PRO® was tested & is certified to withstand radio frequency interference per the ANSI C37.90.2 Standard
