Mt. Prospect, IL: E-T-A Circuit Breakers is pleased to announce the 1620/1626 MINI CBE product series - the latest addition to its thermal automotive product line. Designed for use with the mini-sized terminal blocks, the 1620, with a standard trip curve, is the first circuit protection device in the market to meet all the requirements of the four SAE J553 type classes (I, II, III, and III*) in the miniature package.
The products housings are color-coded consistently with industry standard current ratings of blade fuses. The design of the 1620 and 1626 allows interchangeability with blade type fuses – Providing retrofit capability, eliminating the need for spare fuses, saving space and reducing vehicle downtime.
Specifications and Approvals:
The 1620 and 1626 are available in current ratings from 5… 30 A with voltage ratings of 12 VDC or 24 VDC depending on the product type. Keeping in line with SAE J553, the following product classes and can be selected based on specific applications: Type I (automatic reset), Type II (modified reset), Type III (reset button), and Type III* (with trip free mechanism or manual release button). Specification of part number is dependent on the type of trip curve required - Type 1620 has a standard trip curve holding 100 % rated current and Type 1626 features a fast trip curve holding 70 % rated current. With a size of only 13.3 mm the 1626/1626 can reduce space requirements in fuse boxes up to 30%.
The 1620/1626 is intended for the protection of 12 V or 24 V on-board electrical systems in passenger cars, trucks, buses, watercraft and extra low voltage wiring systems.
