Product Information:

Counterfeits, re-labeled, and used products pose a significant safety hazard to the electrical industry. In addition counterfeit and gray market products expose users to the risk of lost production/revenues and potential liability.

Molded-case circuit breakers are designed to provide circuit protection for low voltage power distribution systems. They safeguard connected electrical devices against current overloads and short circuits. They protect your equipment and your people.

If the breaker you are about to buy is not in the original carton, has been opened and resealed, or there is no box at all, make sure you know why. If the packaging is suspect, it's safest not to buy.

Eaton's online Circuit Breaker Authentication (CBA) tool is intended to provide customers with the ability to authenticate Eaton molded case circuit breakers through 400A. The CBA is designed to detect a counterfeit circuit breaker based on information provided by the user. It should not be the sole means for authentication but used as part of a process to identify counterfeit products. An authentic response does not guarantee age, condition, usability, or suitability of the authenticated product for any application.
