RS introduces new motor circuit protection range from Schneider Electric

RS Components (RS), is stocking the TeSys GV4 range of motor circuit breakers from Schneider Electric, a supplier of advanced solutions for energy management and automation applications.

Offering a full set of advanced features and functions, the compact TeSys GV4 product line combines digital intelligence with robust and reliable protection for motor applications. Importantly, the product line has also been engineered to perform in the harshest environments, such as in wastewater treatment facilities, refineries, cement plants, crane hoisting machines and many other challenging applications.

Designed to ensure continuous operation and reduce motor downtime under tough conditions, the TeSys GV4 combines basic circuit breaker protection together with a range of advanced features and the ability to handle up to 55kW of power and current up to 115A.

The TeSys GV4 offers three types of protection: magnetic for the GV4L model; electronic thermal magnetic for the GV4P, which is dual-class 10 and 20 with a wide range of overload settings; and electronic thermal magnetic with adjustable advanced protection and alarming features for the GV4PEM. Alarming and fault differentiation features are also available with the optional SDx side module.

The TeSys GV4 range also comes as standard with two-hole EverLink power connectors. The EverLink patented technology for terminals reduces the risk of loose bare cables due to copper creeping. In addition, this brings improved ability to withstand vibration and also means that there is no requirement for yearly periodic re-tightening. The power connectors mean the range can also be equipped with a wide range of accessories.

The range also provides user-friendly operation with settings selection via the NFC communications protocol and the TeSys GV4 app for smartphones or tablets, enabling the reading of diagnostics or the setting of protection features such as jam, long start and ground fault.

Available in eight ratings from 2A up to 115A, three breaking capacities are available including 25, 50 and 100kA, as per the IEC standard at 415V AC.

The range is certified to EAC and CCC standards; and the GV4P and GV4PEM also offer UL certification.

The GV4 range is also compliant with Schneider Electric’s Green Premium ecolabel, which guarantees complete compliance with up-to-date environmental regulations, including RoHS and REACH, and discloses extensive and reliable information related to the environmental impact of its products.
