How is Schneider Electric shaping the future of circuit protection?

The team at Schneider Electric provide some insight into the evolution of the brand’s circuit protection offering and why it is helping to shape a safer future.

In today’s world, it’s easy to overlook the essential components that keep the inner workings of buildings safe behind the scenes.

Circuit breakers stand as the un-sung heroes; they ensure all electrical components within these structures run smoothly and are safeguarded against electrical hazards to maintain the reliability of the infrastructure.

Today’s electricians, contractors, and other industry professionals understand the critical role these devices can play, and Schneider Electric plays a pivotal role in shaping the future of circuit protection.

Getting Active

Over the last ten years, Schneider Electric has been at the forefront of circuit protection innovation, introducing products that have re-defined industry standards.

The launch of Acti9, a modular circuit protection range tailored to numerous applications across commercial and industrial buildings, offices and care homes, has represented a significant leap forward in electrical safety; the integration of multiple protective features into a single device has set a new benchmark for product reliability and efficiency.

Building on this success, Schneider Electric has continued to push the boundaries of innovation with the latest launch of Acti9 Active.

This next-generation of circuit protection solutions incorporates cutting-edge technology, including residual current device (RCD), miniature circuit breaker (MCB) arc-fault detection device (AFDD), and an over-voltage release together with embedded connectivity.

Acti9 Active provides comprehensive protection against electrical faults and aligns closely with the evolving needs of modern buildings. It is also designed to prioritise energy efficiency; from its eco-friendly design to its advanced analytics and diagnostics, it enables organisations to realise and grow their sustainability credentials.

Master plans

In addition to Acti9 Active, Schneider Electric continues to drive innovation with the recent introduction of MasterPacT MTZ Active.

This revolutionary low-voltage air circuit breaker is designed to set even higher benchmarks of efficiency, safety, and sustainability – particularly in the data centre field. With features such as real-time energy monitoring and advanced fault mitigation capabilities, MasterPacT MTZ Active empowers data centre operators to optimise energy usage, reduce downtime, and enhance overall efficiency.

Electricians and contractors play a crucial role in implementing and maintaining electrical systems that prioritise safety, efficiency, and sustainability.

Keen to futureproof this key workforce, Schneider Electric provides training programmes, technical resources, and ongoing assistance from industry leaders. This is to ensure that electricians have the knowledge and tools they need to excel in their field and have the skills necessary to build a safer and greener future.

Schneider Electric is proud to be a leader in circuit protection and to carve a path in the pursuit of safety and environmental responsibility. Working alongside electricians, we have the opportunity to embrace new advancements and harness the power of technology to create safer, more efficient electrical systems together.
