Original Press Release:
Fuseholder Style Circuit Breaker is RoHS Compliant
T9 Series is First Lead-free Fuseholder Style Circuit Breaker
Schurter's new T9 series circuit breaker for equipment is free from lead and other hazardous materials as outlined by the European Union's Restriction on the Use of Hazardous Substance (RoHS). The new design is equipped with the same proven features, such as fuseholder body style, snap-in mounting (5/8" or 16mm diameter hole), and push-to-reset button. Its tripping operation is (cycling) trip-free.
Fuseholder style circuit breakers are ideal substitutes for panel fuses where inrush currents cause nuisance trips, or aging of the fusing element overtime. Resetting the circuit can avoid unnecessary downtime and maintenance costs associated with replacing fuses. Improper replacement with the wrong current rating is also prevented. The circuit breaker button extends to indicate when the circuit is interrupted. The button returns to depressed status when pushed-to-reset. The ampere rating is clearly visible on the face.
The Schurter T9 series meets UL standard 1077 for Supplementary Protection, CSA C22.2.235, EN 60934 and GB 17701. Typical applications include lighting, power tools, industrial appliances, medical diagnostic appliances, sports and hobby machinery, HVAC. Rated currents range from 5-16 Amps and are cURus approved at AC240V/DC48V for 5-8 Amps, and AC240V/DC32V for 10-16 Amps, VDE and CCCs approvals are pending. Terminals are ¼" or 6.3 mm quick-disconnect. Pricing is $1.52 for 100 pieces quantities.
