Type 2216-S

~ 52 mm
Typ 2216-S von E-T-A: Der Typ 2216-S ist ein steckbarer thermisch- magnetischer Schutzschalter.


E-T-A’s 2216-S is a plug-in type thermal-magnetic circuit breaker. Its small width of only 12.5 mm including auxiliary contacts makes this breaker suitable for all applications where space savings and reliable wiring are at a premium. The resettable design significantly increases system availability compared to conventional MCBs.

A combination of 2216-S and socket system 80plus/81plus connects the clever wiring system with the busbars for supply, signalling and neutral. A coding system in terminal block and breaker prevents mix-up of current ratings.

Differences and Similarities Between K Curve and D Curve Breakers

A Miniature Circuit Breaker (MCB) is a resettable protective device that prevents electrical circuits from catching fire and causing damage to personnel and property. It is a device designed to isolate a circuit during an overcurrent event without using a fusible element. There are two types of overcurrent events; a thermal overload and a short circuit.

Improve Plant Production by Addressing 24VDC Switch-Mode Power Supply Issues

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.
