SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC has developed a modular circuit protection range tailored for the UK market – Acti9 Acitve.

The solution is reported to have revolutionised the future of electrical installations across higher risk residential buildings, HMO’s, Office Buildings and care homes, catering to the evolving sustainable needs of electricians, facilities managers and design firms. Compliant with the Acti9 Isopar P distribution board, Acti9 Active provides scalable, modular circuit protection. 

The all-in-one circuit protection device is known for its cutting-edge technology. Integrating residual current device (RCD), miniature circuit breaker (MCB), AFDD, and over-voltage protection, Acti9 Active delivers an exceptional level of protection that has been designed to meet the ever-growing needs of modern enterprises. With this product offer, Schneider Electric underlines the company’s commitment to supplying sustainable and energy efficient solutions to the electrical infrastructure sectors. 

Acit9 has been a key player in supporting SMEs on their sustainability journey since its launch in 2012. Now, over a decade later, Acti9 Active has been developed with even more eco-friendly features. The modular upgrade includes energy efficient components that reduce environmental impact during the manufacturing process, but also through to the end-of-life recyclability. By opting for Acti9 Active, businesses can significantly contribute to their green initiatives, while supporting top-level electrical safety and distribution.  

The key features and benefits of Acti9 Active include:

  • Energy Efficiency: incorporating energy efficient technology that contributes to reducing overall energy consumption. By using EcoStruxure™ Power Monitoring Expert, the to-go web app is integral for visualising insights, notifications and diagnostics of the Active Safety System 
  • Smart Connectivity: with its modular design, Acti9 Active allows for easier integration with existing smart building solutions. This also enables remote energy management and monitoring through the IoT connectivity, providing customers with simple to understand data, trends and notifications
  • Reduced Environmental Impact: With a green approach to manufacturing, businesses can automatically reduce their impact by selecting an environmentally friendly product with end-of-life recyclability - contributing to the circular economy
  • Comprehensive Protection: Acti9 provides state of the art circuit protection to ensure the safety of electrical installations, reducing down time. Furthermore, maintenance costs can be saved utilising fault detection software – reducing outages and any serious errors
