The new UP1 undervoltage switch monitors supply voltage and actuates a trip release when there is an intense drop in voltage or when supply voltage is interrupted. As soon as the supply voltage resumes to full capacity, the machine or equipment does not automatically restart in an uncontrolled manner, it must be consciously switched on again. Having this function, dangerous situations for operating personnel as well as for the surroundings of the device itself can be prevented.
The requirement for the use of undervoltage protection is in existence for applications such as gardening equipment, gardening shredders, floor cleaning and sanding devices, electrical tools such as circular saws, band saws, grinding machines and drills. Further examples are fuel pumps, coffee-milling devices, fruit juice squeezing machines and fruit juice centrifuges.
The UP1 undervoltage protection switch is configured differently in its hardware for various network supply voltages und must therefore be ordered for the appropriate supply voltage. Rated switching category is AC-1 16A / AC-3 14.5A @ AC 240 V. The breakers are approved according to IEC 60947, UL 508, CSA 22.2 No.14-95 and also contain a horsepower rating.
