PKE 65 Motor-Protective Circuit-Breaker with Electronic Wide-Range Overload Protection Extends the PKE Range.

As one of the leading manufacturers of components and systems for electrical engineering and automation, Eaton is now offering new PKE 65 motor-protective circuit-breakers with wide-range overload protection. Electrical motors currently in operation come in a wide range of different variants. In the majority of processes their particular features enable them to determine production efficiency. A motor fault often not only jeopardizes the device, but also prevents a smooth production process and causes costly downtimes. Motor protection is therefore not only essential from a technical point of view but also from a financial perspective.
