December 2, 2015 - Phoenix Contact announces CBM multichannel circuit breakers that protect up to eight circuits from overload and short-circuit. With up to eight circuit breakers in 41 mm of space, the CBM significantly reduces the amount of cabinet space used.
The device circuit breakers, with four- and eight-channel options, lock in the set nominal currents electronically, preventing unwanted changes. Each channel has an individual load rated at 0.5 - 10 A, with an LED status indication that lets users monitor the trip status of each circuit-breaker channel. The circuit breaker detects and signals overvoltages and undervoltages, then disables connected loads in a targeted manner.
The CBM offers adjustable current settings along with many other easy-to-use features, including remote status monitoring and reset, and active current assist. Its design enables startup at -40°C, as well as use in temperatures ranging from -25°C to 70°C.
