Chint Low Voltage Switchgear

Chint Low Voltage Motor Control equipment is a late comer to the South African market. Over the past 15 years, the product has proved itself to be a rugged, reliable competitor against the more well known, brands. Trans Electron has been involved with Chint, first as an importer then as a distributor, before the brand was acquired by CED.

Because of the competitive pricing, the comprehensive range of contactors and accessories, MCCB’s, Moulded Circuit Breakers, Starters and Constant Voltage Regulators, the product is becoming more and more popular with OEM’s and contractors.
