About ETC

etdMore than just a retrofit: ETC designs solutions to extend the life of power circuit breakers.

ETC is best known as the leading manufacturer of replacement digital solid state trip units. With the release of its flagship version of the ETC kit in 1988 (etc.11), ETC was the first company to engineer a full-function, digital solid state trip unit.

Location: ETC’s headquarters and primary manufacturing facility is located in Shelton, CT. ETC maintains an inventory of nearly every power circuit breaker ever produced and a fully outfitted machine shop which can fabricate components and complete kits to meet tight project deadlines.  In the US, we are represented by master distributors and a certified installer network.  In order to service our base of international customers, ETC has master distributors and certified installers located around the world.

While ETC now operates independently, the ETC product line was conceived by and originally operated as a division of the Satin American Corporation. Founded in 1921, Satin American is an industry leader providing creative solutions to challenging electrical problems. As ETC has grown, it has applied the same sense of urgency and pride in engineering as its founders – fast and effective service, as well as a commitment to professionalism. ETC is a versatile company, capable of not only providing support for obsolete breakers and spare parts but also offering a means to upgrade existing gear to incorporate the latest in technology – without the price tag associated with purchasing all new equipment. This has allowed countless customers to maintain their circuit breakers and switchgear for decades after the OEM had stopped supporting them.
