SafeBond incorporates the NDC high speed, unidirectional circuit breaker, featuring the award-winning magnetic actuator, to carry out the making and breaking of all load and fault currents, whilst an ‘off-load’ motorised two position disconnector selects the circuit.
With the disconnector in the positive position and the NDC circuit breaker closed, the positive busbar is connected to the track feeder cable thereby functioning as a standard feeder circuit breaker.

NDC circuit breaker at the heart of SafeBond
The patented arc transfer system prevents internal contamination of the circuit breaker compartment and cubicle.
The cold cathode arc chute assembly dissipates all arcs whilst the transfer coil provides additional magnetic flux across the contact gap, assisting with the interruption of low currents that would otherwise lead to long arcing times.
The magnetic actuator is based on a solenoid plunger, and provides the motion required to close the main contacts and to reset the latch device on tripping.
