Type 8340-T

~ 71 mm
Typ 8340-T von E-T-A: Ein- und mehrpoliger Schutzschalter mit magnetischer oder hydraulisch-magnetischer Auslösung.


Single, two, three and four pole magnetic and hydraulic-magnetic circuit breakers with trip-free mechanism and toggle actuation. A choice of fast magnetic only or hydraulically delayed switching characteristics (S-type MO or HM CBE to EN 60934) ensures suitability for a wide range of applications. Featuring a combi-foot design for symmetric and asymmetric rail mounting. Low temperature sensitivity at rated load.

Approved to CBE standard EN 60934 (IEC 60934).
