Flat Insulated Braided Conductor

IBS & IBSB Advanced

Insulated braided conductors suitable for all the main molded case circuit breakers worldwide

The IBS & IBSB Advanced range can be used as an alternative to cable for all low-voltage applications. It is suitable and connectable for molded case circuit breaker ranges, including most compact breakers on the market. From 80A up to 630A circuit breakers, you can directly connect the IBS & IBSB Advanced on the front access terminal breaker without additional accessories, such as angular connectors, spreaders, ring terminal connectors or extenders. No lugs,cutting, stripping, or crimping is necessary. Simple, quick, ready to use!

The below table provides some guidance regarding possible IBS & IBSB Advanced cross-section to use for MCCB (Molded Case Circuit Breaker).

MCCB from this list are:

  • IEC and/or UL Version
  • Front access connection, without accessory
  • Fixed version

Some MCCB may need more important cross-sections in function of the MCCB Power dissipation. In some case, increasing the IBS & IBSB Advanced cross section may be necessary to support MCCB heating dissipation. It is necessary to follow the instructions provided by the electrical device manufacturer.
