New Product: Electronic-Circuit Protector

March 6, 2008
The ESX10-T electronic-circuit protector combines electronic trip characteristics and active current limitation to selectively disconnect loads connected to 24-Vdc power supplies.

Selective load protection prevents complete shutdown of the system by quickly disconnecting the faulty path when an overload or short circuit occurs. The highest possible current is limited to 1.8 the rated capacity. It can switch capacitive loads to 20,000 μF with disconnection only in the event of an overload or short circuit. The device is just 2.76 0.5 in., direct mounts on a 35-mm DIN rail, has fixed current ratings from 0.5 to 12 A, and is approved to UL 2367 as a “Solid State Overcurrent Protector.” Class I, Div. 2, Zone 2 hazardous location approval is pending.
