MNS® Fixed

Scalable solution for infrastructure and process industries

MNS Fixed offers space-saving design that enables a footprint reduction of up to 25% compared to other MNS designs, by maximum utilization of each section height, application of the combined cable compartment; where two outgoing sections share the same cable compartment and the option to reduce the width of the outgoing functional units.

Rigorous testing has been conducted to ensure safety, availability and reliability i.e. performance testing has been conducted at increased ambient temperatures and highest IP ratings, to ensure these values are maintained for the most demanding environmental conditions. As can be expected from the MNS portfolio full compliance to IEC 61641 Ed 3 is provided with active arc fault protection. 

MNS Digital is available across the entire MNS portfolio providing a common look and feel for the user irrespective of the digitally enabled devices in the switchgear application. Enabling control, data acquisition (gathering)  and reporting from the complete application. This information is then available via ABB Ability™ Condition Monitoring or 3rd party energy management systems in order to achieve operational savings through increased efficiency.
