New Switch with Built-in Undervoltage Release Protects Operator Safety

Undervoltage Protection Product

We are pleased to announce a new 2-pole appliance switch with built-in undervoltage trip release.  The new series prevents uncontrolled restarts of an appliance by monitoring and tripping under conditions such as extreme voltage drop, or when the supply voltage is interrupted.  Even when the supply voltage returns in full, the machine or equipment does not automatically restart, but must be manually switched on again.  The undervoltage trip release action and manual restart feature protect against harmful situations.  Using such a device can prevent harmful situations for operators, as well as others in the surrounding work area.

The switch, with pushbutton or rocker actuation, is a circuit breaker with undervoltage protection, and without overload protection.  The pushbutton version is available in both snap-in and screw-on (flange) mounting, while the rocker version is designed for snap-in mounting.  IP rated protection covers are offered to prevent ingress of water spray and dust in machinery that operates in harsh environments such as construction sites, woodworking, metal, or masonry shops.  The covers can be supplied factory mounted with the breaker or separately for client mounting.

Applications for undervoltage protection include products such as landscaping equipment, wood chippers, floor cleaning and sanding devices, electrical tools like circular saws, band saws, grinding machines and drills.  Other application examples include fuel pumps, coffee-milling devices, fruit juice squeezing machines and fruit juice centrifuges.

This undervoltage circuit breaker configuration provides a corresponding part number according to switching and mounting features, and supply voltage.  The rated switching utilization category is AC-1 16A / AC-3 14.5A @ 115/120 and 230/240 VAC.  The switch is approved according to IEC 60947-4-1, UL 508, CSA 22.2 No.14-95.
