Doing the work of three – A unique way to use three-pole circuit breakers

It’s not a totally new idea: In order to save space and reduce cost, a three-pole circuit breaker can protect three single phase loads. What if the loads – e.g. electric motors – have different technical data and need different types of protection? E-T-A’s three-pole circuit breaker/switch combinations offer a convenient solution. The pole chambers of these circuit breakers can be built with different bimetals working as trip elements so all loads are appropriately protected. >> Read More
