Original Press Release:
Three-in-One X3130 Appliance Inlet Module Combines a C14 Appliance Inlet Module, Rocker Switch and Resettable Circuit Breaker in One Package
Today E-T-A Circuit Breakers announced the availability of its new X3130 Appliance Inlet Module. The X3130, integrated with E-T-A’s double-pole 3130 thermal circuit breaker, combines a C14 appliance inlet module, rocker switch and resettable overcurrent protection in one compact package. This three-in-one device allows design engineers to streamline the number of components in their designs - cutting installation time by 66 percent - and reduce the overall cost and size of the equipment.
Available in current ratings up to 15A and AC 240V, the new X3130 solution provides protection from harmful overloads and potential short circuits. It has a C14 appliance inlet module (to IEC 60320) and is designed for screw-type mounting which reduces the chance of accidental removal of inlet from equipment by users.
The X3130 Appliance Inlet Module is approved to UL, VDE and CCC and, in combination with the 3130-FA.A thermal circuit breaker, is designed for use in applications where the equipment and power cord are packaged separately – primarily in medical, office, laboratory, floor care and professional audio equipment applications.
The X3130 Appliance Inlet Module and 3130-FA.A Thermal Circuit Breaker are available directly from E-T-A or through its authorized distributor network. For more information on the X3130 Appliance Inlet Module and 3130-FA.A circuit breaker, call E-T-A at 1-800-462-9979 or visit www.e-t-a.com/x3130.
