ACB Solutions – Ellison ABDO/GEA

Production of the  George Ellison ABDO and GEA  ACB`s ceased in the early 1970`s. No original spares or manufacturers support exist for either the ABDO or GEA ACB. Both the GEA and ABDO  do not achieve the current regulatory disconnection times, even if regularly serviced or overhauled.

The only way to achieve these protection levels is to fit new ACB breakers into a system whether retrofit or within a new panel.

We offer a retrofit solution allowing replacement of GEA and ABDO ACB`s  into your existing distribution panel.

The EDS Retrofit Option incorporates Schneider MTZ ACB or the Mitsubishi AE-SW ACB

Using the latest computer aided design technology we have achieved this goal with a specifically designed and engineered new chassis and breaker assembly. The chassis and breaker are assembled pre-wired and tested, prior to delivery to site. Allowing for removal of existing breaker, on-site installation is achieved in under an hour.

Case Study:

Electrical Distribution Solutions retrofitted 6 Ellison ABDO ACBs at a major UK manufacturer.

The original ACBs all required replacement as the original dash pot overcurrent protection installed in the ACBs was obsolete and no longer operational leaving the facility without overcurrent protection.

The existing ACBs also contained Asbestos Arc Chutes. The ACBs configured as two ABDO 2400amp Transformer incoming ACBs and four no 800amp ACBs protecting key outgoing circuits.

The retrofit was completed in one 6 hour shift without the need to isolate the two transformer supplies.
