Weidmuller introduces ESX10-TC 12V circuit breaker
February 21, 2012 — Weidmuller introduces ESX10-TC 12V circuit breaker for precise circuit protection and security to 12VDC circuits. Approved for use in Zone 2 hazardous areas, ESX10-TC ensures selective disconnection of 12VDC load systems in both factory and process control applications. Features such as remote reset or on/off control and the capability to mount in a Zone 2 location provides users with enormous cost and time savings.
The12V models also protect a wider range of systems including battery-supplied circuits. Typical process applications are with remote, unmanned equipment where lightning or other transient voltage surges trip protection equipment, cause expensive and unwanted equipment downtime. The ESX10-TC remote control functionality can help get the system back into operation with minimal losses.
ESX10-TC uses active current limitation to respond much faster to overload or short circuit conditions than the switch-mode power supply. The precise and fast-acting tripping mechanism provides protection to the power supply and other circuits in a single load. With a width of only 12.5 mm, the 12V models can snap onto symmetrical DIN-rails for easy installation and control cabinet space savings. The range also offers cross-connection busbars and an integral multi-color LED status indicator.
