Newark Announces Weidmuller Remote Resettable Circuit Protectors

Committed to bringing engineers the newest technologies first, leading multi-channel electronics distributor Newark, part of the global Premier Farnell Group, announces that it is first to market Weidmuller’s innovative new line of compact electronic circuit protection devices. These devices feature remote reset capabilities that operate via the use of an electronic signal.

Combining electronic trip characteristics and active current limitation to allow selective disconnection of loads that are connected to 24VDC power supplies, the ESX10-T Series is unique in the industry. Selective load protection prevents complete shutdown of the system by quickly disconnecting the faulty path, in the event of an overload or short circuit. This eliminates the need to open an enclosure, dispatch repair personnel and risk their exposure to electrical components.

These new circuit protectors are approved for standard and hazardous location (UL Class 1 Division 2) use and operate with any 24VDC power supply.

“We are excited to team with Newark to introduce this new line of innovative circuit protectors to the market,” comments Bruce Hofmann, Director of Marketing, Weidmuller. “Newark is a great partner for Weidmuller because of their extensive market coverage and broad customer base of engineers.”

Paul Buckley, Senior VP, Product and Supplier Management, Newark said, “This innovative resettable circuit protector is exactly the type of advanced technology our customers can expect to find at Newark.”
