Switchgear Protection and Dashpot Trips for Circuit Protection

This one is an ITE/Siemens KB Dashpot for Switchgear. Dashpots on switchgear allow the overload trip to have time delay so breakers won’t open because of a current surge.

Excess current attracts the plunger causing it to go up against the viscose oil or silicone liquid through a the piston’s hole.

When it’s time to upgrade or replace your UVR Under-voltage device, BCS Switchgear and breaker service helps you sustain your existing IITE KB style breakers by upgrading active components matching current technologies.
