Peerless Electronics and E-T-A showcase new circuit breaker solutions for vehicles, boats
- By WorkBoat
The 1610 Series circuit breakers are offered as a resettable alternative for standard plug-in type blade fuses for fuse blocks in vehicles with 12V or 24V electrical systems. The 1610 Series circuit breaker aims to reduce downtime caused by blown fuses in trucks, recreational vehicles, specialty vehicles, passenger cars and boats.
Features of the 1610 series include a color-coding scheme that corresponds to the colors of blade fuses, eliminating the possibility of a fuse being replaced with another fuse of the wrong rating. E-T-A’s 1610 Series thermal circuit breaker can be quickly reset, enabling the circuit to be restored with a minimum of downtime.
E-T-A’s 1620 Series features color-coded thermal vehicle circuit breakers that mount like a standard automotive fuse into a socket. These breakers meet the requirements of SAE J553.
Peerless says E-T-A’s 1620-2 Series Type II circuit breaker with modified reset has the lowest operating temperature in the miniature vehicle circuit breaker market and offers a space saving profile.
The 1620-3 Series is the smallest Type III automotive circuit breaker on the market, Peerless says, making these resettable thermal automotive style circuit breakers particularly suitable for installation in inaccessible areas in 24V systems. They fit into fuse blocks designed to ISO 8820-3 specifications.
All three families of the E-T-A circuit breakers are in stock and available on line in the new Peerless Electronics e commerce stores for transportation and heavy equipment.
