SCHURTER now offers its popular TA35 thermal circuit breaker with a new antibacterial protective cover. This allows the TA35 to be used in applications designed to thwart the spread of bacteria, such as equipment used in medical and laboratory facilities, as well as food production plants.
The antibacterial effectiveness of the cover has been tested and confirmed according to ISO 22196, particularly the protection against the growth of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus bacteria strains. Additionally, the silver ions contained in the protective cover prevent the growth of numerous other organisms.
The circuit breaker combined with the antibacterial cover is ideal for use in equipment where hygiene plays an important role, including equipment subjected to rigorous wash downs. The transparent antibacterial cover on the TA35 carries an IP65 rating to protect against the ingress of water and dust. It also withstands the use of common cleaning agents and disinfectants.
The circuit breaker with thermal overload protection is used all over the world in applications requiring a high degree of safety and reliability. It is available in 1-pole, 2-pole and 3-pole versions and can be configured according to customer specific requirements. Six colors and a range of legends or customer-specific symbols can be selected for the illuminated or nonilluminated rocker switch. The switches are designed for efficient snap-in mounting in panel thicknesses from 1mm to 4mm and are equipped with 6.3mm x 0.8mm terminals.
