Circuit Breaker Suits Marine Industry

A new marine-rated circuit breaker has been designed for applications in the recreational, construction, agricultural and specialty vehicle industries. The Series 187 MRCB is a Type 3 manual reset style circuit breaker with a switching function. On-off switching is identified by a yellow lever on the cover. Because this switch is easily accessible, the 187 MRCB can be used as the main circuit breaker in dc electrical systems. Ratings range from 25A to 150A, and models include panel mount or surface mount. The weatherproof 187 MRCB is molded of UL 94VO materials, and is CE registered. Ignition is protected per ABYC E-11 requirements, and tested per SAE J1171. Main breaker protection interrupt rating is 5 kA per AYBC E-11 at 12 Vdc. Overall interrupt ratings include 5 kA at 12V, 3 kA at 24V, 2 kA at 36V and 1 kA at 48V. BUSSMANN AUTOMOTIVE PRODUCTS, Wood Dale, IL. (800) 227-8732.
