The CX-Series circuit breaker features an innovative configuration
that allows the breaker to safely handle high amperage and high DC
voltage applications in a compact package.
By using a magnetic
flux boosting terminal configuration, a strong magnetic field is created
thus motivating the arc into an enhanced arc chamber.
magnets combined with the upper and lower arc runner increase the
magnetic blow out force and aid in motivating the arc off of the
contacts and into the arc chamber.
The arc chamber features arc
splitter retainers with integrated pressurizing walls, which facilitates
heat transfer from the arc providing additional cooling and quick
transition into the magnetically induced splitter plates. In turn, the
twelve (12) splitter plates attract, segment and cool the arc for full
