Article Highlights:

  • Industrial circuit-breakers are safety-critical equipment. 
  • Any failure, even one that lasts moments, can cause significant financial damage.
  • Molded case circuit breakers (MCCB) are the de facto standard for industrial applications.
  • While they are getting smarter, circuit breakers still comprise sensitivity circuitry that needs protection.
  • Arcing and hazardous threats can endanger their reliability.
  • Parylene is used to protect MCCB components and has superior proven protection capabilities

Just as they protect facilities, the circuit breakers themselves need to be protected.
