|NIKKO FM CIRCUIT BREAKERS IN THE WIDE FIELD|
Nikko MCCBs(Molded Case Circuit Breakers) hold about 20% share of the MCCB market in Japan:
Nikko is one of the best selling brand in Japan's MCCB industry.
We are confident that such dominant share of the market is maintained due to two factors-superior and stable quality of the products and adoption of the Hydraulic magnetic type, a unique method not employed by other makers.
That we manufacture MCCBs of the Hydraulic magnetic type, which is unsurpassed by other methods in terms of electrical theory and practical consideration, is responsible for installation of Nikko MCCBs in a great many fields. Of particular importance is the fact that Nikko MCCBs are used in major buildings in Japan as indispensable items for installation. Let us take a look at just a few of such examples.
(1) Government Buildings
Nikko products are widely used in the buildings of government and public agencies. To name just a few:
(2) Power Companies
There are nine power companies in Japan, where Nikko MCCBs are employed for protection of highly advanced circuits. These nine power companies include Tokyo Electric Power, Chubu E.P., Chugoku E.P., Kyushu E.P., Hokkaido E.P., Kansai E.P., Tohoku E.P., Hokuriku E.P., and Shikoku E.P.
(3) High-Rise Buildings
Construction of high-rise buildings(over 30 stories) is underway in Tokyo at a rapid rate. Of the 10 such buildings already built in Tokey 8 are equipped with Nikko MCCBs. This is because Hydraulic magnetic type's characteristic of instantaneous resetting is well appreciated. After all, no power failure can be permitted in these buildings. A power failure will completely stop the fuctions of a building, thus causing adverse effects.
|Mitsu Kasumigaseki Bldg.||36 stories|
|Trade Center Bldg.||35 ″|
|Keio Plaza Hotel||47 ″|
|Mitsui Shinjuku Bldg.||55 ″|
|Sumitomo shinjuku Bldg.||54 ″|
Yasuda Fire & Marine
|Nomura Bldg.||54 ″|
(4) Broadcasting and Communicatons Facilities
It is no exaggeration to say that the MCCBs of Nikko Electric are used at almost all broadcasting and communications facilities. This is due to one big advantage of the Hydraulic magnetic type: the MCCBs having a special rated current can be manufactured. In broadcasting and communications facilities, the breakers, which fit the characteristics of the equipment, and which can provide full protection, are required, because the functions of such facilities are backed by precision apparatus and equipment.
(5) Railway and Transportation Facilities
Nikko products are used at all railway and transportation facilities mainly because
of the Hydraulic mangetic type's feature that it is unaffected by ambient temperature.
As you can tell from Japan's location in latitude, the islands of Japan extend from
the northern island of Hokkaido, which is very cold, to Kyushu in the south, which is
close to subtropical.
(6) Plants of Major Manufacturers
In addition, most plants of Japan's leading manufacturers make use of Nikko products. This means that the featurers of the Hydraulic magnetic type are appreciated for wide application. For example, one manufacturer cannot afford the time from a power failure to resumption. Or a steelmaker cannot tolerate mistripping due to the blast furnace heat. It can be said that for such reasons, many principal manufacturers have adopted Nikko MCCBs. The following users of Nikko products are all leaders of respective industries in Japan.
