Havells’ India, electrical consumer goods and cable manufacturer launched smart switchgear range STADx which includes miniature circuit breaker (MCB) and Distribution Board (DB) for the non-industrial segment.

What’s Smart About these Havells’ Switchgears?
These switchgears, when connected to a Building Management System (BMS), will provide real-time status of particular MCB i.e. ON or OFF. Through this, it will also be helpful in pinpointing the fault occurrence time and identify the faulty circuit. It would also pass on the energy consumption information.
Other Design Enhancements
The other new basic features include name tag slip to identify the MCB of a particular area like a bedroom or living room. Also to ensure safety these switches will have a contact indication where red would mean the circuit is in operation and green when the MCB has tripped.
