E-T-A, specialist for the protection of DC24V circuits in factory automation, has extended their product range of electronic overcurrent protectors by an electronic circuit protector ESX10.
The remarkably compact device with purely electronic trip characteristics in combination with active current limitation features a small size of 70 mm height and only 12.5 mm width. Seven ratings between 1 and 10A are available. This practical choice of versions ensures that 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 24 V protection from one source.
Typical applications of the electronic circuit protector ESX10 are in automation, e.g. for tool machines or packaging machines. It is particularly suited for machinery where a reliable and above all selective disconnection is paramount and where there is at the same time an integral safety technology such as a safety PLC or similar.
