The article cites ABB's preparation for the launch of the type 362PMG-B gang operated, dead tank gas circuit breaker during the third quarter of 2012. The 362PMG-B is described to be based on the design of the 362PMI-B independent pole operated breaker. The breaker is presented to offer a universal solution for users requiring three-phase tripping and closing functionality, and is referred as the first dead tank breaker equipped with high-energy BLG 1002 spring drive.
