E-T-A Electrotechnical Applications , specialists for the protection of DC24V circuits in factory automation, has extended their product range of electronic overcurrent protectors with an electronic circuit protector, the ESX10.
The compact device includes purely electronic trip characteristics in combination with active current limitation and features a small size of 70mm height and only 12.5mm width.
Seven ratings between 1 and 10A are available (1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 6A, 8A and 10A). This practical choice of versions ensures the integral fail-safe element will be optimally adjusted to the connected cable cross sections and that the cables will be protected according to standard requirements.
In addition to the electronic circuit breaker ESS20, which has already been well established in the market, E-T-A now offers all protective elements for a dc 24V protection from one source.
Typical applications of the ESX10 are in automation, such as tool machines or packaging machines. It is particularly suited for machinery where a reliable and selective disconnection is paramount and where there is at the same time an integral safety technology such as a safety PLC or similar.
