Schneider Electric Launches Masterpact MTZ Air Circuit Breakers

Masterpact MTZ

Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, launched the Masterpact MTZ – the next-generation, high power, low voltage air circuit breakers.

Masterpact MTZ comes with a range of new features that increase connectivity, convenience, and ease of power management. It is designed to protect electrical systems from damage caused by overloads, short circuits and equipment ground faults. End users will benefit from increased power uptime and energy efficiency, building on the legendary performance, reliability and safety of the Masterpact range.


The new range of circuit breakers incorporate communication functionality as well as Class 1 power metering system that optimises costs and efficiency to ensure smart operations of buildings. It can connect the electrical switchboard to any building and energy management system, allowing users to connect their smart phones as the main Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) to monitor and control Masterpact MTZ. This provides maximum convenience and allows ease of power management.

Astri Ramayanti Dharmawan, Country President for Schneider Electric Malaysia, said: “It is about time industries in Malaysia, especially those that are heavily reliant on high quality power, harness disruptive technologies like Internet of Things (IoT) in managing their power disruption within their operations, more effectively. At Schneider Electric, we recognise our customers’ need for reliable, efficient and connected power distribution for their operations, which is why our latest offering, Masterpact MTZ is designed to empower end users, especially panel builders and contractors who require high power breakers for low-voltage solutions for industrial sites, critical applications and buildings.”

Through its integrated intelligence technology and internal current transformers, the Masterpact MTZ air circuit breaker enables users to upgrade the electronic separation unit at any time, as well as reduce problems of current fluctuation. This gives users better control over the environmental impact of their equipment.

O’Niel Dissanayake, Commercial & Transformation Vice President for Low Voltage – EAJ, Pacific and Hong Kong at Schneider Electric, said: “Today’s highly competitive business environment comes with higher expectations of reliability, efficiency, sustainability and availability of power, regardless of harsh conditions such as extreme temperatures and environmental constraints. Our future-ready, connected and digital Masterpact MTZ circuit breakers will redefine power distribution for our customers in Malaysia and the Asia Pacific, and enhance connectivity, efficiency and reliability of their power solutions within their operations.”
