Chicago, February 23, 2004 – E-T-A Circuit Breakers has published its first guide for the application of circuit breakers for equipment. Intended as a handy reference for experienced engineers and a tutorial for engineers who want to deepen their knowledge of circuit protection, the E-T-A “Guide to Circuit Breakers for Equipment” covers the selection between different circuit breaker technologies. It also explains the key terminology and the optional features of circuit breakers.The 72-page guidebook is part of the company’s continuing education effort. Although engineers think that specifying a circuit breaker is simple, only 10 percent of engineers that E-T-A surveyed in 2000 could answer five basic circuit protection questions correctly.Including diagrams and tables, E-T-A’s Circuit Breaker guide is useful for any circuit breaker application, ranging from medical equipment and machine tools to automobiles and military aircraft. The guidebook explains the different circuit breaker technologies: thermal, thermal-magnetic, magnetic, and high performance, along with the time/current trip characteristics of each type.
