Phoenix Contact introduces a new range of electronic device circuit breakers designed to offer an inverted status output in addition to providing protection against overload and short circuit. The new circuit breakers are therefore particularly suitable for group signalling with the aid of a parallel connection for the status outputs.
Phoenix Contact’s new range with inverted status output, unlike the existing device circuit breakers provides the required high signal after tripping in the event of an error.
The new range of electronic device circuit breakers from Phoenix Contact includes a total of 14 protective devices with nominal currents ranging from 1 to 10 A. Versions are available with Reset-In and Control-In.
A key advantage of electronic circuit breakers over mechanical circuit breakers is the precise tripping in the event of an error, limiting current flow. This ensures that the voltage of the power supply is not interrupted and the system remains in operation. Prompt tripping is ensured even when dealing with much longer cable lengths.
Electronic device circuit breakers allow control and signalling to be selected variably, with a high degree of flexibility available in signalling from the floating signal contact to the active status input. The circuit breaker can be remotely switched on again or even switched off with the reset input and control input.
