Undervoltage release switch for operators safety
Protection covers against the ingress of dust and spray water make the use of the breaker in harsh environments such as wood-, masonry- or metal-workings possible. The requirement for the use of undervoltage protection is in existence for applications such as gardening equipment, gardening shredders, floor cleaning and sanding devices, electrical tools such as circular saws, band saws, grinding machines and drills.
Further examples are fuel pumps, coffee-milling devices, fruit juice squeezing machines and fruit juice centrifuges. The UP1 undervoltage circuit breaker is configured differently in its hardware for various network supply voltages and must be therefore ordered for the appropriate supply voltage. Rated switching category is AC-1 16A / AC-3 14.5A at AC 240V. The breakers are approved to IEC 60947, UL 508, CSA 22.2 No.14-95 and also contain a horsepower rating.
