Installation and selection of the molded case circuit breaker
Install a molded case circuit breaker (MCCB) on the power receiving side to protect the wiring at the inverter input side.
Select an MCCB according to the inverter input side power factor, which depends on the power supply voltage, output
frequency and load. Especially for a completely electromagnetic MCCB, a slightly large capacity must be selected since its
operation characteristic varies with harmonic currents. (Check it in the data of the corresponding breaker.) As an earth
leakage current breaker, use the Mitsubishi earth leakage current breaker designed for harmonics and surge suppression.
Selecting the rated sensitivity current for the earth leakage circuit breaker
When using an earth leakage circuit breaker with the inverter circuit, select its rated sensitivity current as follows,
independently of the PWM carrier frequency.
• Breaker designed for harmonic and surge suppression
Rated sensitivity current
In ≥ 10  (Ig1 + Ign + Igi + Ig2 + Igm)
• Standard breaker
Rated sensitivity current
In ≥ 10  {Ig1 + Ign + Igi + 3  (Ig2 + Igm)}


Do not change the initially set ON (enabled) position of the EMC filter ON/OFF connector in the case of the inverter with a built-in C2 filter. The
Class C2 compatibility condition is not satisfied with the EMC filter OFF. The FR-A846-00250(7.5K)-C2 to FR-A846-00470(18.5K)-C2 are not
provided with the EMC filter ON/OFF connector. The EMC filter is always ON.

The inverter with a built-in C2 filter must be used in the earthed-neutral system.
