How to Choose the Correct Industrial Connector
1st October 2018
Industry 4.0, and the gradual transformation of the factory floor into a smart automation system, involves an increasing number of electrical applications working in unison.
These naturally need to be joined to each other to make a unified whole, and this is where choosing the correct connectors can be your most important design decision.
A myriad of modern devices such as switches, sensors, valves, actuators, conveyors and cameras are all used to carry out production, control and monitoring processes, for which they require secure signal connections...
What is a Motor Protection Circuit Breaker?
10th September 2018
A Motor Protection Circuit Breaker is a simple electromechanical device that protects an individual electric motor against overload, fluctuations in input current or unscheduled interruptions to the main circuit.
This includes line faults and phase loss or imbalance in three phase motors. A Motor Protection Circuit Breaker saves on space and costs, providing fuseless protection that switches motors off instantly to prevent damage. It will also safely disconnect the current in the event of a short circuit.
It will usually be equipped with a thermal delay to allow the motor to cool down, and sometimes with automatic reconnection when it has done so.
