Someone was in a jam and needed a trustworthy source to get their customer back up and running. It is no secret that LKD-8 circuit breakers can be a stubborn as a kid having to hand his Halloween Candy to his Mom and Dad. But NAS knows how to handle delicate situations.

We took the LKD-8 circuit breaker and started our process. Note- this was not a reconditioned breaker, they needed it quickly. We recommended they have a URC AC PRO solid State Trip Unit added to this Cleaned & Tested LKD-8 breaker.

URC was fantastic and over nighted a complete LKD-8 solid state kit so we could replace the old kit. This was important and time was of the essence, we did not have time to go through different kits to test and retrofit. The customer needed a full function kit and the candidate did not have LSIG. Again, LKD-8 breakers and their original trip units can be finicky and when you are dealing with a time crunch you must always provide the best.

600 volt
Manually Operated
3 pole
800 amp frame (set@400A for customer)
LKD-8 Fused with Gould Shawmut A4BY1200 amp fuses Type 55AL

We opened the breaker, cleaned the breaker, lubricated the mechanism and necessary operating parts. We meggered, ductored, tested the anti single phase device and tested the obsolete ITE LKD8 circuit breaker on our high current test set.

We typed up the test report, backed it with our 1 year warranty, packaged it perfectly and shipped it to the NETA accredited field service company that installed it.
