Circuit Breaker Standard

The thermal circuit breaker is an essential component of the electric plant. It has three functions:

  • protects from very dangerous short circuits
  • protects the electric motor of the windlass
  • interrupts tension to windlass when desired

In case of short circuit the intervention is immediate. Concerning the electic motor a specific intervention curve has been studied in cooperation with E-T-A Germany. It is possible to re-activate the circuit breaker at the end of the intervention. The thermal circuit breaker is supplied with an elegant plaque for fixing and a led light. This unit is in compliance with EEC regulations and homologated by Bureau, Veritas.
