AMP-SAFE PRO: one of the world’s top “better than the original” upgrades

December 3rd, 2015

ComAp’s AMP-SAFE PRO is a better trip unit for the Masterpact-M circuit breaker than the original. From tech, through movies to songs, we’ve thought of nine other developments that put their predecessors in the shade.

ComAp’s AMP-SAFE PRO trip unit has two critical advantages over the original unit that came with the Masterpact-M circuit breaker. Fitting it improves the performance of the installed equipment for a fraction of the cost and time it would take to replace the whole breaker.

  • the AMP-SAFE PRO has an electronic trip function instead of a manually-adjusted control. The electronic function trips faster and more accurately.
  • the AMP-SAFE PRO features two-way GPRS (cellular) communications. It can send status reports to a central control centre and receive configuration updates without a site visit. This is great news for large campuses and service organisations.

That’s music to the ears of anyone using or maintaining Masterpact-M circuit breakers. Changing the trip unit instead of the whole brakers saves time, saves money and improves performance.

But here’s the bit we enjoyed most at ComAp. What other examples can we think of where the successor was far better than the original? Here’s our list:

The original

The ‘remake’

CRT TVs Flat-panel TVs – better for the planet, if nothing else
William Shatner as Captain Kirk Chris Pine
The Hoover The Dyson
Gloria Jones’ “Tainted Love” Soft Cell’s version (or even Marilyn Manson’s)

“I Will Always Love You” by Dolly Parton Whitney Houston’s version from The Bodyguard
“Valerie” by the Zutons The same by Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson
