How many MCBs on an IPS?


Each Isolated Power Supply System will have a number of outgoing MCB’s, usually between four and sixteen ways.


Why choose the eTCP over the sTCP?


The eTCP is flexible in the sense that even after is has been manufactured changes can still be made to its functionality because it only requires the software to be update. Changes to the sTCP are not always possible and they usually come at an expensive price due to the metalwork/machining required.
