ATOM SWITCH SOLID-STATE CIRCUIT BREAKERS
Solid-State Power Distribution Technology for Marine Applications
SOLID STATE CIRCUIT BREAKERS Circuit breakers are the devices by which all the power we depend so much on flows through but have historically been mechanical in nature, very slow to trip (contributing directly to arc flash hazards) and have little or no intelligence. Atom Power has developed solid-state circuit breaker technology, called the Atom Switch, which has: •dynamic time/current characteristics (through a software application), •built-in metering, •is remotely controllable, •is the fastest circuit breaker in the world, --eliminating arc flash and short circuit hazards.
The Atom Switch will give unparalleled results in safety, dynamic response, visibility, control, metering, and energy savings in marine applications. The Atom Switch allows the full software control of circuit breakers, potentially acting like an energy management system. or not. This level of control and visibility is of paramount importance on ships where instant knowledge of whatâ€™s happening in real time, the ability to dynamically change, and to see energy consumption at a granular level could be the difference in a catastrophic failure.
