PISA-B. The next generation of electronic circuit breakers. Protect Inform Secure Assist
Selective tripping of overloaded channels
In the event of a fault, PISA-B disconnects the affected channels only and ensures constant power supply to the remaining loads. This means individual faulty connections can be rapidly identified, isolated and rectified.
Two different output types
PISA-B features two types of output channels. Channel 1 and 2 are ideal for high capacitive loads up to 100mF and allow peak currents up to 12 A. Standard loads with up to 20 mF can be connected to channels 3 to 8 and are supplied with up to 10 A. You can choose between slow or fast tripping characteristics for all channels.
Instant current monitor
You can use the instant current monitor with LED technology at the front of the device to analyse and reset individual channels. The LED matrix helps to understand and evaluate your loads, detect peak currents and change your settings.
The electronic circuit breaker informs you about tripped channels via an alarm relay contact (PISA-B-812-B1, PISA-B-8CL2-B1). An optional “digital coded alarm signal” provides information about the tripping status of individual channels (PISA-B-812-B4, PISA-B-8CL2-B4)
The additional reset relay contact allows switching the device ON and OFF or resetting all tripped channels remotely.
The new design of the PISA-B helps to avoid accidential operating errors or manipulation via a PIN protection feature. The settings can be locked with a 4-digit PIN code via the user interface on the front of the device.
The fail-safe function is a back-up protection feature of the PISA-B. If one of the channel switches fails to open, the fail-safe function kicks in. Therefore an electronical switch is used instead of a traditional melting fuse. The electronic circuit breaker monitors the total current and can react much earlier, if the current becomes too high. This feature can save your lines from overheating.
The compact product design helps you to save space. The electronic circuit breaker includes plus and minus distribution terminals, with a total width of only 52mm – that means 6.5mm per channel.
PISA-B allows an easy and fast expansion of your system. Up to 8 devices can be connected in parallel via bus bars. This sums up to 64 channels in total.
PISA-B also assists you with a tool-less push-in technology. The terminals are optimized for automated wiring processes.
PISA-B gives you more of everything. Except effort.
PISA-B is the most efficient electronic circuit breaker (ECB). It distributes the current, protects your loads from over-current or short-circuits and monitors the operating status in DC 24V systems. The 8-channel programmable capability can identify and isolate individual faulty branches. It shuts down the affected channels only and secures the constant power supply of the remaining loads.
An integrated data monitoring reports the operating status to a PLC or control center. The electronic circuit breaker also alarms in case of an error and allows a remote reset of the channels. The new PISA-B is based on a modular product design. Up to 8 PISA-B electronic circuit breakers can be connected in parallel by using bus bars. This results in up to 64 channels.
Smart power distribution and load protection. Improve and simplify your application.
Miniature circuit breakers Solution with standard MCBs
This setup is quite risky for industrial applications. MCBs were originally designed to protect the cable runs in buildings on the AC side – not the system itself. Additionally this solution will not inform your condition monitoring system about the current system status or occurring errors.
Electronic circuit breakers Solution with PISA-B
With a PISA-B solution you are on the safe side. The electronic circuit breaker will reliably secure your system components from overload and short-circuits. You will immediately be informed via the alarm signal. All other loads stay unaffected and keep your system running.
Your industry in focus. Limitless applications.
