Carling Circuit Breakers for all your circuit protection needs!

With a wide assortment of sizes and ratings providing current or voltage sensing, Carling Technologies offers a complete line of circuit protection products for all your projects including:

The MS Series – Designed and tested to operate flawlessly in the harshest of environments, Carling Technologies’ MS-Series sealed toggle circuit breaker is ideally suited for COTS (commercial off the shelf) military applications.

This class-leading, affordable circuit breaker was designed in accordance with the requirements of MIL-PRF-55629 and MIL STD 202, making it the best choice for those applications where shock, vibration, moisture resistance, salt spray and thermal shock are of the utmost consideration.

The ROCB Series – Carling Technologies’ C-Series remote operated, hydraulic magnetic circuit breaker consists of a custom designed remote operated motor module (housed within a circuit breaker molding) coupled to a C-Series hydraulic magnetic circuit breaker.

The remote operated circuit breaker (ROCB) offers the convenience of remote ON, OFF, and Reset capability combined with the safety and accuracy of a standard magnetic current sensing device. This allows operation of the circuit breaker from various locations in a system, facility or site without sacrificing the ability to manually operate the breaker if required.

The CX Series – Carling Technologies’ CX-Series circuit breaker features an innovative configuration that allows the breaker to safely handle high amperage and high DC voltage applications in a compact package. By using a magnetic flux boosting terminal configuration, a strong magnetic field is created thus motivating the arc into an enhanced arc chamber. This circuit breaker is ideally suited for 380VDC applications, PDUs and photovoltaic energy systems.
