Ideally suited to protect equipment components in industrial applications and supply lines which are fed by means of a DC24V switch-mode power supply.
Electronic overcurrent protection prevents dips of the output voltage of switched mode power supplies both in the event of short circuit and overload. At the same time these devices provide selective protection or disconnection. Switching high capacitive loads and indicating a functional error is possible without any problems. Fault indication is by means of LEDs and auxiliary contacts. This helps with trouble-shooting and increases machine run times.
For most industries, the accepted norm for unplanned downtime is 5% of operating time, which represents a direct, significant loss of revenue and therefore profit. But have you ever stopped to consider the true cost of downtime? Read the latest white paper from E-T-A to see how the integration of electronic circuit control technology can reduce the downtime of your 24VDC system designs.
An increase in the demand for energy worldwide has driven the search for alternative primary sources of energy, even to the most remote locations of the globe. Natural gas is considered the cleanest burning fossil fuel with minimal environmental impact. This white paper shares a real world example of how the integration of electronic circuit protection eliminates the need for widely used NEMA 7 enclosures.
