Product details

10.0A Auto Reset Circuit Breaker

A compact circuit breaker with an auto-reset facility. Designed to withstand overload but to trip quickly on short circuits, the circuit breaker latches into an ‘off’ state under fault conditions and automatically returns to the ‘on’ state after a set period of time. If the fault condition still exists, the unit will immediately latch ‘off’ again. This process of checking the circuit will continue until the fault is cleared. This product is suitable for working at voltages up to AC 250V, and offers seven rated ‘holding-current’ values. Connections are via two solder tags 7mm long. Overall dimensions: 29 x 12.5 x 6mm.

Is this for a car electrical system?  It looks like it should fit into a normal blade fusebox but the 'auto' could be mean 'car' 'or automatic'?

Asked by: Teig
Auto means automatic, although we cannot say that this is designed for car use, i can see no reason why it would not work.

What is the "set period of time" for auto-reset on AK13P?
Asked by: Anonymous
These do not have a set reset time. They work by heating up internally when the current is over the rated value which disconnects the load. They will reset whenever the internal temperature of the device returns to normal (25°C). RW
