Schneider Electric introduces the MasterPacT MTZ Active

Schneider Electric has unveiled the MasterPacT MTZ Active, a new low voltage air circuit breaker designed to set new benchmarks for efficiency and sustainability at Data Centre World, London.

Experts at Gartner estimate that data centre downtimes could set businesses back by upwards of $300,000 per hour, so the business case for investing in innovation and technology to ensure data centre resiliency has never been stronger.

In a world increasingly driven by electricity and digitisation, the MasterPacT MTZ Active enables data centre customers to respond to complex challenges, including 24/7 uptime demands, spiralling energy costs, and urgent calls for sustainable practices.

“The new MasterPacT MTZ Active makes the invisible visible for critical industry operators to see and track their energy use in real-time,” says Ionut Farcas, Senior Vice President, Europe and International Hub, Power Products Division at Schneider Electric.

“By making such information available at a glance, data centre operators are empowered to make better energy management decisions, reduce consumption, eliminate waste and improve efficiency.”

The first MasterPacT product was launched 35 years ago and has ever since been synonymous with circuit breaker innovation and reliability. Now, with smart and connected power distribution becoming a must-have, Schneider Electric says that it is revolutionising the MasterPacT range to advance circuit breaker performance in the data centre.

The new MasterPacT MTZ Active’s control unit speeds mitigation with an industry-first QR code solution. Data centre operators can scan the code to access comprehensive instructions to optimise decision-making on the most effective restorative actions to take, in order to reduce data centre downtime.

“There’s no need to waste time searching through a 200-page document,” Ionut says. “In an overload event, you are quickly instructed to redistribute the loads more evenly between circuits.”

MasterPacT MTZ Active, according to the company, sets new benchmarks for safety in the data centre. An Energy Reduction Maintenance Setting (ERMS) guards maintenance personnel against arc flash hazards, and the control unit’s intuitive design facilitates the setting of all protection functions, including current, time delays and alarms.
