The BRUSH Switchgear SafeBond integrates the feeder circuit breaker function and the remote bonding function into one standard Lightning panel footprint, a big advantage in floor space saving, civil engineering, cabling and operational consistency and safety.

The 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 CB closed, the positive busbar is connected to the track feeder cable thereby functioning as a standard feeder circuit breaker.
