Utility supplies: Vacuum Interrupters Inc. introduces its new CBT-1201 portable circuit breaker (CBT) timer, power supply, and circuit breaker control system for use in the shop or field during the 2014 PowerTest Conference, the premier electrical maintenance and safety event.

The CBT-1201 unit includes a heavy-duty circuit breaker timing test set, power supply, and switching control in one easy-to-use tool. This rugged, field-portable unit operates and interacts with all types of circuit breakers capturing and storing trip, close, and bounce times all in milliseconds. It is a versatile tool that can be used on the go to confirm proper breaker speed and clearing times as part of a maintenance program or arc-flash validations study.

“With more emphasis on breaker speed and proper clearing times to confirm arc-flash incident energy levels and validate arc-flash safety, this new timer will allow technicians to work in the fastest, most efficient manner,” said Finley Ledbetter, CEO and chief scientist of Group CBS. (Vacuum Interrupters is an affiliate company of Group CBS.) “The CBT-1201 is an inexpensive, yet accurate, timer that comes pre-configured with all circuit breaker control diagrams, allowing for faster, easier hook-up and results.”

The new CBT-1201 unit ships with secondary push-on connectors that allow for more timing test data to be gathered. Optional custom cables available for virtually any circuit breaker to simplify and speed electrical tests are also available. This compact, lightweight unit, suitable for both field and shop use, also includes a heavy-duty, utility-grade storage bag for leads and the control unit.
