The WEG MPW range of motor protection circuit breakers offer customers reliable operation in the harsh operating environment found on the African continent. All motor protection circuit breakers in the WEG MPW range are manufactured in accordance with IEC 60947 and UL 508 international standards giving absolute assurance in terms of operational parameters and quality.
The devices offer the benefit of being compact and modular, facilitating space saving within the electrical panel itself. This means the panel can be smaller or where necessary more components can be included in the panel. The WEG MPW range of motor protection circuit breakers are robustly constructed for optimal reliability.
The WEG MPW range facilitates the protection of a wide range of electric motors from 0.16 A up to 100 A. Significantly, the range has both thermal magnetic versions facilitating protection against potential short circuit and overload conditions as well as magnetic only versions which provide protection against short circuits.
Use of the thermal magnetic device will reduce the number of components required when manufacturing a motor control centre. This can translate into a significant cost saving. The magnetic-only version allows the use of electronic overload protection devices which can reduce costs further.
The WEG MPW motor protection circuit breaker is available with a full range of accessories including auxiliary contacts, shunt trips, under voltage releases, door mounting handles and free standing enclosures. The devices are certified to Type 2 allowing continuous operation until replaced. This is important in a production critical environment.
