AutomationDirect's Eaton WMZT series miniature circuit breakers feature a current-limiting design for short circuit interruption
Eaton WMZT series miniature circuit breakers have been added to AutomationDirect’s line of circuit protection devices. The single-pole, two-pole and triple-pole devices, available in sizes from 0.5 – 40 Amps, are designed to protect branch and control circuits. The series’ current-limiting design provides short circuit interruption, within one half cycle of the fault, which reduces let-through energy.
WMZT circuit breakers are available with C- and D-curve thermal magnetic overcurrent protection characteristics. C-curve devices are suitable for applications where medium levels of inrush current are expected, such as small transformers, lighting, pilot devices and control circuits. D-curve devices provide protection from nuisance tripping where high levels of inrush current are expected, such as motors, transformers and power supplies. The series is also suitable for reverse-feed applications.
The series is DIN-rail mountable and features a trip-free design so the breaker cannot be defeated by holding the handle in the “on” position.
