The new multi-channel device circuit breaker boards from Phoenix Contact are available with 4, 8, and 12 channels.
The boards are very versatile as they can be fitted individually with thermomagnetic or electronic circuit breakers. They are particularly suitable for machine building and control and process technology.
Due to the central potential distribution, up to four loads can be protected per channel. This reduces installation time to a minimum, while simultaneously saving space compared to conventional installations. In addition to individual load protection, the boards give you the option to loop in safety-related relay contacts. As such, the affected circuits are integrated into the safety concept with minimal wiring. In doing so, the switch contacts of the enabling current paths are protected according to regulations. A supply of up to 60 A can be achieved thanks to the high current carrying capacity.
