Eaton Smart Breakers

January 1, 2022

Smart. Simple. Sustainable.

Eaton’s Wi-Fi smart breakers provide circuit protection, cloud connectivity, remote control & precise metering all packaged in a standard miniature circuit breaker form factor


Advanced functionality built into these smart breakers allows customized energy usage and helps save on energy costs. This new level of control and insight at the branch-circuit level provides more efficient management of the grid. Open APIs, powered by Brightlayer, allow flexibility to integrate with preferred software systems. Eaton's documentation provides detailed instructions on functionality supported by the APIs to help developers incorporate our solutions into their applications. You can find the API documentation at:

Design Features
  • 1” per pole smart breaker in plug-on and bolt-on styles
  • Ability to control breakers remotely – ON, OFF
  • ±0.2% accurate metering as per ANSI C12.20
  • Bi-directional communication via Wi-Fi
  • Real-time access to device state: Open, Closed
  • Access to the breaker through the internet (cloud connectivity)
  • Local access to the breaker through User Datagram Protocol (UDP)
  • Metering information: current, voltage, frequency, power, energy [4-quadrant: Forward, Reverse, Total, Net]
  • Data streams: real-time & historical waveforms
  • Waveform capture capability on power disturbances including Undervoltage, Overvoltage, and Overcurrent events. Waveform captures of a minimum of 200msec at a resolution of 1kHz or per-cycle RMS
  • Wi-Fi signal strength indication
  • 4MB of local data storage to limit the possibility of data loss
  • EM Install app for iOS and Android to commission devices
  • Open platform with API documentation available
