Wider Protection with ConnectPower from Weidmuller

RICHMOND, VA — In efforts to strengthen an already extensive circuit protection product offering, Weidmuller introduces two new models to the connectPower line of DIN-rail mounted circuit breakers. Weidmuller’s new BR Series circuit breakers are UL 489 Branch rated and the new SU Series circuit breakers are UL 1077 approved for Supplementary protection.

Weidmuller’s lever-operated breakers use thermal-magnetic technology, having ratings up to 277/480V and 60A in 1, 2 and 3 pole formats, and are available immediately with C or D trip characteristics. The ranges are designed for industrial control applications, especially where the control equipment may be in an environment that needs to resist vibration and mechanical shock.

A compact 17.5mm width on the rail is part of an attractive package for the connectPower circuit breakers. Weidmuller’s BR Series and SU Series circuit breakers give users the option of using 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.
