Space-saving CBM offers high-density protection


Protects up to eight circuits from overload and short-circuit

Middletown, Pa. – Phoenix Contact’s new CBM is a series of programmable, multichannel circuit breakers that can manage multiple circuits in a single device. With up to eight circuit breakers in
41 mm of space, the CBM significantly reduces the amount of cabinet space used.

The two new device circuit breakers, with four- and eight-channel options, lock in the set nominal currents electronically, preventing unwanted changes. Each channel has an individual load rated at 0.5 – 10 A, with an LED status indication that lets users monitor the trip status of each circuit-breaker channel. The circuit breaker detects and signals overvoltages and undervoltages, then disables connected loads in a targeted manner.
