Atom Power Introduces First Ever Digital Circuit Breaker21.5.2019 15:00:00 CESTPressemelding

New technology certified for widespread commercial use, bringing power distribution to the digital age for the first time CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Atom Power, inventor of the world’s first and only digital circuit breaker, today announced its technology is listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), the governing standard for consumer safety.
