3.0A Auto Reset Circuit Breaker

  • A compact circuit breaker with an auto-reset.
  • Can withstand overload but will trip quickly on short circuits.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic Used as a circuit breaker for a each lane on a 6 lane scalextric track. Works flawlessly and has prevented constant fuse replacements.

Hi Is 3.0amp the continuous allowable current rating rather than the current that it would fast-trip at. If so could you recommend a circuit breaker that would trip at 3.0amp

Asked by: Nick F475
3A is the trip mark.
