Moeller PKE Electronic Motor Protection Circuit Breaker

Eaton Logo

• Approvals: UL/CSA, CCC, ATEX
• Trip Classes: Greater Than – Equal to CLASS 10
• Push-In Technology: Save Up To 50 % Installation Time

Thanks to their special features, the Eaton Moeller series motor-protective circuit breakers with electronic overload protection complement the PKZ range and offer a good alternative to MCBs with bimetallic strips. Due to the compact and modular design featuring plug-in trip blocks, they offer maximum flexibility in the current range up to 65 A. By adding the PKE-XTUCP trip blocks, you can quickly turn a PKE motor-protective circuit breaker into a PKE circuit breaker for system and cable protection.

Core Features:
• Hand-operated motor-protective circuit breaker in accordance with IEC/EN 60947-4-1, VDE 0660 Part 102
• Rotary handle with ON & OFF switch-position indicator
• Push-in trip block up to 65 A with visible isolating distance
• If used in conjunction with the appropriate accessories, the circuit breaker can be turned into main switch or emergency-stop switch in accordance with EN 60204 and/or VDE 0113
• Isolating characteristics in accordance with IEC/EN 60947-3
• UL/CSA (including Types E and F) approvals for the North American market
• SmartWire-DT integration
• Short-circuit proof up to 100 kA (400 V) up to 32 A, 50 kA (400 V) up to 65 A
• Circuit breaker width: 45 mm up to 36 A / 55 mm up to 65 A

Push-In Technology – Connections With Just One Clever “Click”:
The Push-in terminals enable control-panel wiring with just one simple click. This tool-free connection technology makes wiring even faster, safer and more efficient. The PKE motor-protective circuit breakers with electronic wide-range overload protection and plug-in trip blocks offer a viable alternative to bi-metallic solutions in the current range up to 65A.

The PKE as Part of the xStart System:
Many applications require an auxiliary contact with different contact configurations for interlocking and signaling. By using a motor starter, however, it becomes possible to implement a more direct, safe and efficient control design.

Open, Flexible and Easy Communication:
Due to the established and widespread serial Fieldbus Modbus RTU the communication module is an open and standardized Communication interface. This enables a complete recoding of the machine conditions and a consistent and clear condition monitoring.

All The Information At Your Fingertips Thanks to SmartWire-DT:
Via SmartWire-DT, the PKE motor starter combinations can be easily integrated into any automation environment. By enhancing data transparency, SmartWire-DT increases the efficiency and reliability of the drives in the vicinity of the motor-protective circuit breaker.

With Eaton, your systems are automatically compliant with the ErP directive in a simple, fast and economical way, while significantly reducing your energy costs.
