GECO MCB, a compact designed device to cope with complexities of 
modern electrical installations with high safety features to give 
protection against electrical hazards in dual ways i.e:-

  • Thermal Overload protection
  • Magnetic short-circuit protection.

TRIPPING CHARACTERISTICS
GECO MCBs are available with two type tripping characteristics for 
different type of applications:


B-Series
(Lighting Circuits)

Suitable for installations with a low and steady currents generally for 
domestic and non  inductive loads.


C-Series
(Motor Circuits)
Fit for use in installations with high in-rush current peaks and which 
require closer overload protection. These include inductive loads 
such as motor, air-conditioners, halogen & sodium vapor lamps etc.

FEATURES
  • High strengthen flame retardant PBT fibre glass housing.

  • Silver inlaid copper contacts to ensure zero resistance and 
    1ong life.

  • 12 plate arc-chute chamber for efficient arc quenching.

  • Precisely calibrated thermostatic bimetal for closely controlled 
    over load trip.

  • Sophisticated electro magnetic release system for short circuit
     protection which clears the fault in a few milliseconds.

ENERGY SAVING

IS:8828-1996 has recognised the growing importance of limiting power
loss in switchgear devices and stipulated maximum permissible power 
loss values per pole for MCBs. Geco  MCBs have power loss figures of 
40-75% of the stipulated values which contribute - significantly 
to energy saving.


SAFETY

The terminal screws are well recessed to avoid any unpleasant 
accidents. The terminals are "Finger-Safe".


SIMULTANEOUS TRIPPING OF ALL PHASES IN MULTIPOLES

Overloading or short-circuit trip in one phase causes all phases to 
trip simultaneously in GECO's multipole MCBs, preventing damage 
due to single-phasing, especially in motor circuits.


VIBRATION

GECO MCBS  can withstand vibration limits upto 3'g' continuous duty 
with their efficient latch mechanism. For  practical applications like 
usage in locomotive and  electric trains, mounting on generators and 
motors etc. GECO MCBs find maximum suitability.


BACKUP PROTECTION


As per the wiring regulations, it is required that an overcurrent 
protection device should be capable of making and breaking any 
overcurrent upto and including the prospective short circuit current 
at the point where the device is installed. 
GECO  MCBs are capable of
making and breaking over currents upto 
10000 Amps.

PADLOCKING / SEALING ARRANGEMENTS

This arrangement is possible in both ON and OFF positions. This
eliminates the hazards of closing when personnel are working on 
circuits as well as the nuisance of manual tripping when it is
unnecessary.

EXECUTION
Single pole, Single pole & Neutral, Double pole, Triple pole, Triple pole with Neutral and Four pole.
