Phoenix Contact releases new electronic circuit breaker
Electric engineering manufacturer Phoenix Contact has released its new single-channel electronic circuit breaker, the PTCB.
With its 6mm width and 106mm height, the PTCB aims to provide space saving circuit protection and potential distribution.
The device protects 24 V DC loads against overload and short circuiting. It can be used as a standalone circuit breaker or with Clipline complete Din rail terminals and accessories for additional output or with multiples connected together. Adding the PTCB to existing applications does not require users to purchase another set of terminals.
Technicians can adjust the amp values on the device from 1 to 8 to tailor the PTCB to their needs and ensure optimal adaptation to the connected load/application. The device can be modified during start up as well as adjusted at any time to respond to changes in the application.
The PTCB is equipped with a relay status indicator with a pre-warning LED so that users can see the functional status of each circuit breaker. It is suitable for use in temperatures ranging from -25º to 60ºC, and is shock and vibration resistant.
