This addition to Banner Engineering’s series of plug-and-play connections delivers quick and easy overcurrent protection anywhere it’s needed in a circuit. The rugged housing allows for use in harsh environments with other series components, and the visual feedback system provides quick status updates at a glance. No matter where a device is in a circuit, an S15J fuse can be installed quickly using the simple 5-pin M12 connection. A compact 15mm diameter barrel allows placement in areas where space is a concern.
Molex has recently introduced the Super-Safeway Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) industrial-duty product at the 2023 International Production & Processing Expo (booth C13103). The new GFCI offering is the first portable 20A device to earn the IP69K rating, which is the highest level of industrial protection against the penetration of high-pressure, high-temperature water and dust. This latest addition to Molex’s Woodhead line of permanent-mount and portable GFCI solutions is ideally suited for the food-processing industry as well as other applications where sanitizing equipment continually creates excessive moisture and humidity conditions.
NOARK Electric’s B1D Series DC miniature circuit breakers are available in a complete range of amperages from 0.5A to 63A. The standard ratings for these circuit breakers are 10 kA at 250Vdc. UL489 listed and CSA C22.2 No. 5 certified, these breakers are suitable for branch circuit protection and come with a 5-Year limited warranty.
ABB Low voltage distribution system offers safe and reliable distribution based on InLine ZLBM fuse switch disconnector. It’s a full IP2X protected system consisting of Z-busbar, InLine ZLBM, Z-busbar connectors and Nordicab enclosure. The system assembly with its components are tested and verified according to IEC 61439-1 & -5; Low voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies.
Siemens is expanding its generator circuit-breaker portfolio with a new compact version – the HB1-Compact (HB1-C). The versatile and highly customizable solution uses maintenance-free vacuum switching technology and addresses the most challenging of constraints. Available in L-shape and I-shape designs, the HB1-C can be mounted either vertically or horizontally and can be adjusted to match existing busbar connection points.
Siemens is the first company to successfully receive UL listing for a 120-volt, single pole solid-state circuit breaker. The solid-state breaker concept replaces the traditional moving parts of an electromechanical circuit breaker with semiconductors and advanced software algorithms that control the power and can interrupt extreme currents faster than ever before.
Littelfuse, Inc. has recently announced their new SMTOAK2 TVS Diode Series. Many of today’s high-power, high-surge-rating TVS diodes are only available in axial leaded packages. The compact, 2 kA 8/20 μs rated, surface-mount package SMTOAK2 TVS Diode Series allows electronics designers to achieve a more robust transient voltage, overvoltage protection, and lightning protection system while using less printed circuit board (PCB) space.
ABB’s OVR RS485Q & SL RS485 Series of Surge Protective Devices make surge protection easy for data and signal applications. These UL 497B listed SPDs are specifically designed for RS 485 and Fieldbus applications, such as Profibus DP for protection against the damaging effects of surges caused by lightning, electrical surges, and more on data and signal lines.
AutomationDirect has added more intrinsically safe isolation barriers from STAHL. These modules ensure only a safe amount of energy resides in an electrical circuit, installed in a potentially explosive atmosphere, so that no sources of ignition are created. More digital, analog, and temperature modules, new frequency transmitter isolators, and a Zener Barrier for thermocouple signals have been added.
Introducing the B1E Series miniature supplementary protectors from NOARK. NOARK’s Electric B1E Series miniature supplementary protectors are available in a complete range of amperages from 1A to 125A. Standard ratings of 5 kA at 480Y/277 Vac and 10 kA at 240 Vac. UL1077 listed and CSA C22.2 No.235 certified, these breakers are suitable for supplementary protection only. 5-Year limited warranty.
The Panel Extension PX3 from ABB protects and prevents costly downtime and equipment failure. PX3 features an externally mounted surge solution that can be physically attached to the top or bottom of any panelboard providing a reduced profile surge solution. Moreover, PX3 offers an internal disconnect option, allowing safer and easier repairs without having to cut power to the distribution panel.
Panduit Corp. has added to its SmartZone offerings with the release of the SmartZone Lithium Ion UPS, a highly efficient and reliable UPS that provides protection and backup power to meet the continually growing power demands of Data Center, Enterprise, and Edge IT equipment. The Lithium Ion UPS boasts excellent electrical performance, enhanced intelligent monitoring and network functions while complying with EMC and safety standards.
