February 27, 2017 – The CBMC circuit breaker was recently introduced by Phoenix Contact, delivering custom configurability. It is Phoenix Contact’s first circuit breaker to receive NEC Class 2 approval.
The CBMC measures 36 mm wide and has four channels to protect against overload and short-circuit current in electrical applications. Each channel is electronic and adjustable from 1 A to 4 A, giving the overall component the protection level for NEC Class 2. When installed in a 24 V DC application, the CBMC limits the total output power to less than 100 W per channel.
The circuit breaker can also be programmed at the factory to pre-specified current values. When ordering, the user can decide whether to make the settings permanent, or to allow future modification of the current settings.
The CBMC is also available in a non-NEC Class 2 version with adjustable current settings from 1 to 10 A in a four-channel configuration.
