Protection equipment

Protection technology - vital in automation technology

Protective devices in automation technology include for example circuit breakers, residual current circuit breakers, circuit breakers for motor protection and electronic load circuit breakers. They are used to protect the plant and the load. No matter if there is a short circuit, overload or error current (imbalance between output and input current), protective devices switch off in dangerous situation. Circuit breakers can also be used for manual switching, for example in the event of maintenance works.

Protection for plant and load

Automation24 offers protection technology for every requirement. The SIRIUS modular system from the company Siemens provides optimum solutions for the connection of protective technology and switching technology, for example for motor protection.

Select between several applications and types and protect your system using the protection technology from Automation24.


Security by means of the suitable protection technology

Protective devices must of course be adapted to their operating conditions and process requirements. It is distinguished between the performance and characteristics of the devices:

  • Rated current
  • Voltage range
  • Number of poles and channels

The rated current and the voltage range depend on various components in the plant. Available at Automation24 are for example: Electronic load circuit breaker Murrelektronik MICO BASIC 4.2, residual current circuit breaker Siemens 5SV3312-6, circuit breaker Siemens 3RV2011-0CA10 and circuit breaker Siemens 5SY4110-7. The suitable accessories can of course also be purchased.
