Noark Electric Releases Two New Accessories for Molded Case Circuit Breakers (MCCB)

Noark’s Extended Rotary Handle (ERH) and Flange Handle Mechanism (FHM) can be used anywhere MCCBs are used

noark_electric_circuit_breakersNOARK Electric, a leading low-voltage electrical product manufacturer, announces two new additions to their already industry leading UL489 Molded Case Circuit Breaker family: the Extended Rotary Handle (ERH) and the Flange Handle Mechanism (FHM).

The Extended Rotary Handle (ERH), part of the MCCB family, is UL Listed with UL Type 1/3R/12 or 4/4X. It meets cULus standards in U.S. and Canada.  The unit is offered in black/grey or red/yellow handles and is available in shaft lengths of 7.9/12.6/19.7 inches. It has a simple and robust NEMA handle operating mechanism and can be used anywhere MCCBs are found. A new safety feature of the ERH allows operation of the enclosed circuit breaker without the need to open the cabinet door. The external handle quickly shows the state of the circuit breaker without opening the panel and a new, larger handle design gives the user more leverage than previous models. It is available for the 65kAIC rated M1/M2 MCCBs, as well as the M3/M4 MCCBs.

The ERH has NEMA type extended rotary handle mechanisms to mount on front of an enclosure door and operate externally. They are used with the NOARK UL MCCB series. The mechanism includes three components: external handle, shaft and handle operating mechanism. The NOARK ERH is available as a kit or individual components and is available immediately for delivery.

This new product is designed to allow the handle to be mounted anywhere on the panel or next to it. It has a simple and robust NEMA handle operating mechanism. The FHM is UL and cULus listed for the U.S. and Canada. It is available for the 65kAIC rated M1/M2 MCCBs, as well as the M3/M4 MCCBs.

The Flange Handle Mechanism mounts on the flange of an enclosure door, occupying less space inside the enclosure. The units are specially designed by NOARK for UL MCCB use. The flange mechanism includes three components: flange handle, flex shaft and operating mechanism. It is available as a kit or individual components and will be available for sale in December, 2016.

NOARK Electric will display these new products and many other components for the HVAC market at the upcoming AHR 2017 show in Las Vegas, January 30 through February 1. Visit Noark at booth N7939.
