This patented, spring-based power terminal system ensures a lasting connection by mitigating the loosening effects of heat cycling or vibration. The lugs are UL listed for use directly with stranded and also fine-stranded wire up to Class K. EverLink lugs are even offered with optional built-in control wire terminals.

OEMs that offer it in their products, contractors that install it, and Schneider Electric distributors who carry it will know they’re giving their customers the best choice. In the field, PowerPact B will be a pleasure to work with because of the small size, integrated DIN rail, one-click accessories and the secure EverLink connectors.”  
“It was time to give our customers more flexibility,” says Marostica about the new circuit breaker. “And with global challenges of counterfeiting, safe electrical infrastuctures, and support logistics, we were also able to design in features to help eliminate some of these issues.”
