Circuit Breakers - connectPower brings wider protection from Weidmuller

In a move designed to consolidate an already extensive circuit protection offering, Weidmuller is introducing two new models of their all new connectPower brand of DIN rail mounted circuit breakers into the North American market – the BR Series UL 489 Branch rated, and the SU Series, which is UL 1077 approved for Supplementary protection.  The lever-operated breakers use thermal-magnetic technology, having ratings up to 277/480V and 60A in 1, 2 and 3 pole format, and are available immediately with C or D trip characteristics.  The ranges are targeted at industrial control applications, especially where the control equipment may be in an environment which needs to resist vibration and mechanical shock.

A compact 17.5mm width on the rail is part of an attractive construction package for the connectPower circuit breakers, which gives the user the convenience of either wire-end ferrules or ring lug terminations for the supply and load, as well as UL-approved bus-bar accessories to simplify and reduce the installation time. To maximize security and safety, the operating lever can be locked, off or on, and even the IP20 connections can be supplied with optional touch protection caps.
